|2.||"When All The World's Asleep" (4:54)|
Placid One's debut came in 2017, with a sublime EP for Ransom Note, and the artist is back with a new 12" for Spain's Nebulae imprint, a home to some of the wildest new techno on the scene. Much like his previous excursions, Placid One's opener here comes in the form of a break-centric dance juggernaut by the name of "Pygmalion", blurring the lines along the hardcore continuum; "Tropic" pitches down to a slow-releasing house abstraction that remains at a slow tempo. Over on the B-side, "Azure" calms the waters thanks to a deep-minded house gem with all sorts of dreamy sequences, and "When All The World's Asleep" builds on that by entering a totally beatless space, gliding and moving along a cloud of rich ambient drones. Excellent stuff.
