"Keir’s saxophone is both warm, edgy sighs and full-on honk, joyous and bulbous – with a touch of Ayler’s gospel roots.  Matthew’s turntables imaginatively compliment, re-work and suggest rather than smother in cloying digital sauce.  There’s a light touch and time travelling element as sounds run backwards and repeat on the decks." -Radio Free Midwich

"Cette création électroacoustique n’appartient ni au jazz, ni au hip hop, ni à quoi que ce soit de connu. C’est un voyage en hypnose au cœur d’une cité vivante dont les murmures révèleront peut-être quelques secrets enfouis dans votre subconscient. Vous avez dit bizarre ?" -DragonJazz (Tunisia)
