"This album fuses perfectly squarepushers eclectic electronic skills with his unique genius on the bass.  Here we weave between the frantic and the subtle drenched in folk-guitar inspired bass"
Drukqs

"One of R. James' more pensive works containing some of his most beautiful pieces ranging from the delicate and intricately melodic to full-on assaults of the eardrums"
Splinter Cell 'chaos Theory' S [VINYL]

"Amon Tobin's attention to detail shines through on any record he has created.  Using limitless fields of sound to create jazz inspired breaks and much much more"
Rossz Csillag Allat Szuletett

"Aaron Funk is possibly the most prolific 'electro' artist on earth, but not at the expense of quality.  This album sees beautiful siwrls of strings emerging through glitchy heavy beats"

"Four Tet is all about having fun.  Kieren Hebden produces what can be described as 'lo-fi alt. dance' music which is at times obscure, but always enjoyable"

"Alt. rock?  Give me a break, Radiohead have progressed so much since the days of 'The Bends' and here we can truly hear them at their most experimental"

"Try to imagine, if you will, The Flaming Lips lost in the woods and they just happen to chance upon a Mars Volta gig and you'll come somewhere close to this band.  Very understated production"
Yellow House
Yellow House
"Silky, folk-inspired music ranging from lo-fi, distant pianos to catchy bass grooves.  Inspires images of desolation and decay, but somehow has a prevailant warmth.  Truly beautiful"

"(Chris) Clark's most coherent work to date still bursts with eclectic melodies and frantic rhythms.  Reminiscent of Aphex Twin's Drukqs"

"Perhaps the most folky on this list, Badly Drawn Boy is one of the first & best pioneers of Folktronica.  This album is a must"
