Modern dance iconography is at the conceptual centre of Desperate Late Night Energy. Placeholder DLNE track names came from a Wikipedia glossary of dance terms which initially served as creative provocations but some eventually stuck to the songs and remain on the final tracklist.

Recorded in the basement underneath Auckland's Crystal Palace, DLNE inhales the euphoria of the early morning hours and puffs it onto a low-lit dance floor. Like his previous EPs, it was mixed by Bevan Smith of Introverted Dancefloor, and features 11 hypnotic tracks including features from Yumi Zouma, Chelsea Jade and Benny’s Videos.
