Gerry Read Remixes Clouds’ “I’ll Be Broke”
One criticism of Suffolk-resident Gerry Read’s house and techno creations is that they’re often obfuscated in a layer of clattering live percussion that makes their original intent difficult to decipher. This quality is actually part of what makes Read’s music so intrinsically interested to me, but it has definitely turned off more than a few listeners. The opening vocal sample simply stating “new style” on Read’s remix of Clouds’ “I’ll Be Broke” should make some happy though as he takes the Blawan/Kowton path into techno oblivion. Clouds’ Gold Panda-esque original is deemed unintelligible under Read’s huge stomp boxes and heavy distortion and the result is a truly original off-the-rails techno track. Truly no fucks given music. Stream below and grab the Clouds remix EP here.
