With 2014's Nocturnes, Driftmachine created a psychoactive, dream-inducing stimulant of sorts: Evoking and maintaining a trancelike state, the duo's six-part journey into the dark was originally inspired by reading The Rest Is Noise and listening to the music discussed in Alex Ross' seminal book. The resulting soundscapes, redefine the lines between insomnia and slumber, between wraithlike dub grooves gone awry, the dancing flicker of a slack-joint bedside lamp, and eerie electronics.

Six studies in precision: perfectly symmetrical structures that slowly spread their bass-heavy wings, sprawl like digital fungi, shift shape and – paradoxically – seem to drift and to obey the two captains at the helm. With its meticulously displaced details and intricate harmony layers, Nocturnes also evokes the electronic avant-garde of the mid-70s, think Cluster during the band's Zuckerzeit era.

Nocturnes keeps the balance between intense, dramatic metrics and rather complex, modulated melodies. Also nodding to Krzysztof Komeda's compositions (especially his score for Rosemary's Baby) and the haunting, uncanny vibes of Raime. Nocturnes won't let you sleep.
