This is just the way I see it.
A drawer front with a pull edge profile is not going to be able to pivot on a hinge to 90 degrees unless it first moves out towards the front about 1/2" to 1" first. You also need to create a shelf to hold your components.
These two challenges could be taken care of simply and together. A drawer front is usually mounted to drawer backing, which is usually the front of the drawer box. For this application it could be just a piece to act as a combo drawer backing and shelf extension. The shelf itself, is cut to the dimensions of the drawer box. If support is needed for "your" drawer application, add a slide support piece above each side to support the shelf as it is slid out. Mortise "any" knd of hinges into the top of the shelf and shelf extension.
Sliding the drawer face out slightly and tilting the drawer face down, will let the shelf extension tilt from 90 degrees, down to "flat."
This is just one way to do it. There are more "elaborate" ways... Which would involve more work, added pieces to the puzzle and money.
I should have mentioned that I've already cut the shelves and painted them black along with the inside areas of the dresser...it looks very slick. When the components are in there it just blends nicely together. I was thinking the same thing you were about the face needing to pull out and then down...hinge work is something I'm not well versed in at all.
