This is some trip. Drakkar Noir and Heidi Sabertooth split halves of a cassette tape on The Sleep of Reason, inspired by Goya’s terrifying vision of human society tormented by the outcome of ignorance. Drakkar Noir starts this with an atomic blast: “Free Delight,” a track of nocturnal electro punched up with a shimmering acid squelch. Heidi Sabertooth (whose “With The Void” on Ellen Allien’s UFO, Inc we reviewed here a year ago) is on the flipside with four hazy, ominous, murky tracks held together by a patchwork of 20th century technology and machines with a programmed swing. “This Time I’ll Quit You For Good” really gets into you, under your skin and into your bloodstream. Though they flow like a live set all of these tracks are ready for DJ sets come summer.
