BBC Review

Having made a name for himself on the undergroundcircuit thanks to acclaimed remixes in 2004 for Funk D'Void ("Way Up High") and Envoy ("Move On"), Soma were suitably impressed to sign Alex Smoke and "Chica Wappa". His accomplished, melancholic debut of minimal and ethereal, techno music quickly followed.

At times his sound is reminiscent of the groundbreaking (and still highly relevant) Thee Maddkatt Courtship releases, one of the more consistent pseudonyms from Chicago producer Felix Da Housecat.

"Lost In Sound" in particular sounds like it would have found a home on his Radical Fear label a decade ago had Smoke not been in school singing for the Durham Cathedral Choir at the time!

Although a largely instrumental collection, Smoke does make the odd vocal contribution not surprisingly a world apart from his chorister background. The deep and shimmering "Don't See The Point", I'm told, contains a pertinent social commentary; unfortunately there's so many vocal effects added that it's almost impossible to hear this for ourselves.

Other highs include aptly named "6am" a lazy instrumental built around enveloping guitar motifs and singular piano chords that suck you in until the track's climax. While the oddly named and even more disturbing sounding, "Brian's Lung", has old school rave undertones underpinning the foundation in much the same way Mike Dearborn did for Djax.

Alex Smoke's fan base is an ever expanding one, and one that not only includes the specialist press, but a fair few of his peers too. It's clear to hear why on this highly effective debut that's deep at times, techy at others, abstract in the main, yet made with a maturity that reassures the next generation of producers that he's man enough for the challenge. --Lewis Dene

This is one of the most accoplished electronic albums Ive heard for years and if you are a fan of the likes of Carl Craig, Ricardo Villalobos and Luciano then it is an essential purchase.
The mood of the album is deeply emotive and melancholic, minimal grooves are juxtaposed with electric melodies and moving strings. Highlights for me include the achingly sombre vocals on 'Don't See The Point' (delivered by Alex Smoke himself), the euphoric 'Chica Wappa' and the twisted future dub of 'Jah Future' - however there is not one bad track on this collection and I can't praise it highly enough.

This album is utterly fantastic!! A superb collection of emotive, intellectual, epically top-notch techno. From the opening Intro and right throughout this album, Smoke surely has marked his place as one of Britain's brightest new hopes for techno and with this incredible debut stands alongside the likes of Carl Craig, Matthew Dear and Villalobos as one of the best and most forward looking producers of recent times. A must buy, I cannot recommend highly enough.

HASH(0x9e69981c) out of 5 stars Brilliant work 19 May 2005
By C. Spinelli - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A brilliant, consistent album that concentrates on slick, fat, minimal beats. Has a deep, almost dark, feel to it Obviously not designed for the dancefloors of Ibiza or the popular crowd.. more for personal listening..

Well produced all round with some variety, including vocals. If you like detroit/deep house or electronica, you won't be dissapointed here!
