Various Artists Cloud Control
- Words: Brion Paul
- Label: Broken Fader Cartel
Lock up your laptops, there's an old-fashioned '96 IDM revival happening-in North Carolina! Spread across 15 tracks, Cloud Control is both a survey and blender of the history of experimental electronic music, with this upstart label referencing and reformulating myriad highlights of the last 15 years of the noodly, cryptically named genre. From Tudikas Wayne Hunnicutt's ephemeral dreamscapes to a grime-dripped Amen splatter from subQtaneous, the distinct vision of each particular artist is maintained throughout. Cloud Control is an auspicious debut from an unlikely place.
