Timbre-saturated, repetitive but tilted always toward the next now, techno is
an immediacy machine, stretching time into a continuous present—which is
where the drug-technology interface comes into play. Not just because techno
works well with substances like MDMA, marijuana, LSD, speed, etc., all of
which amplify the sensory intensity of the present moment, but because the
music itself drugs the listener, looping consciousness then derailing it,
stranding it in a nowhere/nowhen, where there is only sensation, ‘where now
lasts longer.’
