Emil & Friends : Midnight City (M83 Cover)

Emil of Emil & Friends has taken on M83’s 2011 hit “Midnight City” with this re-visioned cover of the track. Emil smooths out M83’s epic pop sound into a slick synth jam that sounds like it could’ve been on the “Drive” soundtrack. So please download and listen. Enjoy!

Also be sure to check out Emil & Friends at Brooklyn Bowl on January 28, 2012 opening for RAC. It will be Emil & Friends first show of 2012!

M83 : Midnight City

M83 is the master of creating nostalgic and emotive slow-motion music that borders being a form of novelty music but somehow he makes it work. This time with “Midnight City” he steps it up by throwing in an epic 90s Sax Solo. I don’t even know where to begin with this track. All I know is that I like it in a non-ironic way. I am so serious. See.

Pegase is a French producer (the singer of Mintel Rose) who creates tracks that border electro and shoegaze, kind of like M83 (especially the vox) meets the distorted synth that we all know an love. I guess he is trying to get that heavy distorted sound a la My Bloody Valentine but with synths instead of guitars. I hear some Tangerine Dream in his tracks too. Cheers, Electrorash

Epic. Reminds me of Sebastien Tellier meets M83 and Battles. Thoughts?

M83 – Up!

I am in love with the M83 album. It is impressive how M83 nailed the classic 80s sound. Many of the tracks remind me of Tears for Fears, everything from the synth samples to the production style. Does anyone know who the female singer is on some of the tracks? She really reminds me of Kate Bush.
M83 – Up!

This is one of my favorite Kate Bush tracks, I can’t stop listening to her and the new M83. Oh the 80s.

New M83 track that reminds me of Depeche Mode off of Saturdays = Youth which will be released 4.15.2008. It’s not your usual epic M83 sounding track with lush vocals and synth that wash over you.
