Album opener The Dream Sequence sets the mood with a lo-slung hip-house groove that relies heavily on field recordings, like the sound of one of the capitals trams. Flambo, a delectable slice of up-tempo French filtered house, is aimed straight at the dance floor. Nachtbraker dims the lights on NSFW, cleverly manipulating samples from adult oriented flicks, and turns in a hilarious skit with LOL.
Flip over for Randy, a quintessential Nachtbraker track, morphing from a Balearic, tropical disco shuffler to a dance floor banger. Driving me Lazy starts out as a downtempo number but changes into a full-on drum n bass workout. The driving You Cant Run features drunken chords over a sober beat, conjuring up visions of running circles in a dark maze. Just Doing My Thang rides a classic broken beat, while Nachtbraker pushes the boundaries again on Innaspace, which starts out as an instrumental hip hop track yet finishes on a jungle tip.
Aliens is a choppy, headsdown groover with cheeky UFO-geek samples that wouldnt be out of place on a mid-90s West Coast Deep House compilation. Horsepony finds Nachtbraker on a sultry Nightmares on Wax tip. Finally, it ends with where it all started; itll be the moment When You Wake Up.
The album is recorded and mixed at Nachtbrakers studio in the Amsterdam Volkshotel. All 13 tracks are run through 2 tape on a Studer A800 and are mastered at Q-lab studio in Basel, Switzerland.
