The distinction between aspiration and embodiment blurs into blank-horizoned, harmonic symbiosis on the second collaboration by ２８１４, 新しい日の誕生 (Atarashī Ni~Tsu no Tanjō). Comprised of t e l e p a t h テレパシー能力者 and Dream Catalogue proprietor, Hong Kong Express, the duo’s design is deliberate, a vision of vaporwave as sample-free, shadowed, and sprawling, less screwed muzak than pensive skyscraper ambience, a sea of misted neon glimmering far below. The album is laid out like a slowdive, arcing slowly through sirens, gauze, and bass into dissolved vistas of steam, mirrors, and metronomic mirage. The deeper it sinks the realer the dream. Few documents from today’s marbled metropolis hallucination scene radiate such ultraviolet allure; ２８１４ channel the fantasy as vividly as anyone. Originally released in an edition of 50 CDRs on Dream Catalogue, the NNF reissue is dubbed on tinted purple chrome cassettes and comes with a previously unreleased bonus track.
