“It comes on slow & strong like mescaline.  There's elements of tech noir, world music, ray gun gothic and post-dust.  It exudes an 'authentic' futuristic urban vibe.”  - Cryptodigitator 

"Fascinating concept...pure technological wilderness." - Synthetic Behaviours

"Great deep, low, suburban techno sounds .. we love it." - Ramteam Records

"Reminds me of Psychic TV and Shpongle in the most wonderful ways." - Amunraja
