Rememeber when you stumbled into the back room of some unlicensed party taking place at a temporarily vacant commercial space and the DJ was playing some weird shit that you knew you'd never hear again but have been thinking about ever since? Yeah, it's like that music.
Favorite track: a00022q.
Bleary eyed, and on the dovetail end of a 3-day sleepless acid trip, Richie Hawtin and Mika Vainio sneak into RDJ's studio, to find their way on the Analord rig after Rich has left for the night.
As if in a lucid dream, or an echo of some previous life, you open a door to a small house in a quiet urban neighborhood. A single streetlamp draws a lazy line across your back as you enter the home, and you seem to float through the entryway, bodiless. Your camera eye weaves slowly through the empty livingroom, casually scanning cheap furniture, a VCR from the 1980s and an answering machine with an ominous, blinking red light. You glide silently into a hallway, and veer slightly right to arrive in a dim bedroom. A saggy mattress slumps onto a black metal frame, covered in mussed red sheets, and flanked on both sides by small wooden end tables. On one, you see a digital clock with the time blinking an incessant 3:33. On the other, a weathered copy of a paperback next to an ashtray. Your gaze narrows to read the title - "Die Schlafende Erde", with a photograph of an empty rural road on the cover. Just then, a small sound, and the faint movement of curtains in the corner. A window is open, and a small breeze blows into the room like a whispered secret, bringing with it the incense of a hot summer night, baked on cricket legs and cicada shells. You get the urge to reach your arms out, and down, perhaps to put your hand to your chest in pensive consideration, but nothing happens. A second sense of voyeuristic powerlessness washes over you, and from the darkened passage behind you, a door opens.
