Cool!

Reminds me a bit of Klaus Schulze who used real drummers quite a bit, maybe because he had been a drummer himself? I much prefer live percussion (or at least percussion that was sequenced by live playing) over step programming myself.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

I wish more electronic bands used real drummers. Some songs sound good with drum machines, but I usually prefer a drummer.

I find it more interesting in the opposite, when a group that would usually use acoustic drums suddenly gains the monster kicks and snares of electro. (or subdued IDM influence ala. radiohead).

Not that there's that much of a difference these days with all the triggers, beat detective and what not but still. (on a side note I like hip hop and RnB a lot better when there's a live kit present eg. Seth sentry, The roots)

the soundtrack to the original "New Wave Hookers" has some pretty great live drums and sample and hold synthesis.
