Woke Up As A Copy 2. Panic Time Tryout 3. Little Djinn 4. No Escape Nicolas Bougaïeff returns to NovaMute with ‘Permutation Djinn’ inspired by Greg Egan’s sci-fi novel ‘Permutation City’. A follow up EP will be released later this year. Following the success of recent NovaMute releases by Charlotte de Witte and ANNA, Nicolas has delivered a stellar techno EP. Bougaïeff’s interpretation on ‘Permutation Djinn’ attempts to translate the stages of Egan’s novel into music while respecting the constraints of making club friendly tracks.  The opener ‘Woke Up As A Copy’ is an expansive track with Blade Runneresque metallic reverberations. ‘Panic Time Tryout’ is a peak time cut, fostering the futurist atmosphere with an unsettling melody. ‘Little Djinn’ is the most frenetic of the tracks whilst ‘No Escape’ takes it back to peak time with resounding drums and drills.
