"Long time friends and studio partners Darko Esser and Benny Rodrigues team up for their first ever appearance on Wolfskuil Records. Both are well known figures in the Dutch dance scene and even beyond. Last year they released their duo debut on Darren Emerson's Underwater imprint, entitled Paradox which received massive support from the industry and was played out by international jocks like Josh Wink, Derrick May, Technasia, Pete Tong a.o. This is their second release with many more to follow. Long and sleepless nights were the inspiration for 'Slaapgebrek' which means sleep deprivation in Dutch. The results of these sessions are two moody & hallucinogenic tracks, which represent a state of mind only to be experienced after many restless nights. The original mix with its freaked out shuffled drum patterns, rave stabs and maximal modulated bassline is peak-time dancefloor fudder for any crazed techno night. Frustrated bleeps and FX give it a nervous twilight zone like feel, climaxing and clashing throughout the track. The flipside takes things on a lighter, more emotion ridden tip. The rhythm is stripped down of all nastiness and the bassline friendlier and melodic. Halfway through the break the violins kick in, resembling the break of dawn after another night of turning and twisting without getting any much deserved rest. Perfect afterhour material."
