MP3: Midi Cloud - We Walked Away From The Humans And Sat At The Dock
MP3: Midi Cloud - Last Night I Crashed The Corsica ('His' Version)
In what is becoming a real trend of mining the best of early house & techno to arrive at interestingly lopsided versions of the original (see: 100% Silk), Midi Cloud offer up a ghostly, alternate-universe take on the early Detroit Techno sound. Both these tracks seem to have fully absorbed the stuttering geometric drums and future-melancholia of Model 500, yet managing to sound way more insular and hardly suited to the dancefloor.
Midi Cloud's debut album Desire Systems is available as a 'pay what you want' from their bandcamp.
