Various Artists - Chapter II: The Magician Longs To See [No Sleep Till Bedtime Promo]

Released via the Australian No Sleep Till Bedtime imprint on April 19th, 2k24 is "Chapter II: The Magician Longs To See", a digital four track label showcase single which opens up with Huddo's "This Is Not A Drill", a hard hitting take on highly functional Business Techno sporting big reverberating bass drums, obscured vocoder samples and a highly mechanical peak time functionality subsequently followed by Unknownfunction's "Opaque" which turns out to be a deeper, straighter Techno affair garnished with haunting, slightly psychedelic atmospheres, subdued tribalisms and somewhat enchanted late night vibes for not exactly legal raves out there in the mountain woods. Furthermore featured on here is "We Want Freedom" by Uelsen's finest Sascha Müller who increases the tempo significantly, adds whipping percussions and a rolling psy-bass before embarking on a journey equally inspired by Dark Rave, Metal guitars and US-leaning BroStep midrange bass carnage whereas the interestingly named project Anti-P.L.U.R. brings forth an expertly sculpted, super dry drum foundation alongside an ever present bass to back intense, psychoactive synth sweeps and an intricately layered array of polyrhythms before heading off into proper Acid Techno territories with their closing cut that is "After Thought".
