At night, things get a lot more unpredictable. A stranger can become a friend, you suddenly become intimate with a woman or a man whose name you will never find out, while darkness also allows you to conceal your true identity – even become someone else.

Inspiration for this album emanates from the fascination towards the intensity of what nightlife has to offer ; euphoria and melancholy, spotlights or incognito, sexual contact or lonely voyeurism… Francois X entertains the listener with playful ambiguïty and unsettling, yet sensual atmospheres. Sometimes dirty, sometimes just quite naively elegant, the double-edged demeanor on this album fittingly concludes the Blade-Runner’s replicants-inspired triptych with his two previous EPs on DEMENT3D. X had envisioned Rachael as the last reference to the movie. The enigmatic, smart but unpredictibale woman. Exactly the kind of muse an artist seeks.

In the intimacy of his studio, he slowly reached a state of flux, where creation and narration blends in naturally. Just like when the dancers let go, X’s mind was pouring ideas. Quite a surprising variety of genres and references featured on this album, bridging a lot of influences and different compositions together – yet held together by a cinematic, sexual tension and blurry atmosphere. Much like his DJsets, you have to imagine Francois X running an esoteric ceremony of sexual wizardry and card-shuffling where bodies slowly moisten and yield to abandonment.
