9/10 Brian Staff review, 18 March 2010
Jamie & Roly are now separated by choppy seas & masses of land but their tentative work towards a second album was still kind of in the can. Badgered relentlessly by top electronica gangster Mick Paradiso of Planet Reflex records to part with their half-formed sophomore opus, 'Cloud Seed' is that very disc you've been hankering for - years after the tuff-assed grime & aggressive mogadon jungle of 'Degenerate' first burst a sub-bass cone in Tarquins student house that Saturday night. This is a slightly less dense & more sultry affair, a record infused with both grace & urban tension. I really like the pace and feel of the tracks here, they've got some top notch female vocalists roped in this time, from Warrior Queen's rumbling patois on the brooding, bleepy sci-fi opener 'Take Time Out' to the glacial purr of Anneka on 'Heart Space' (sort of ties up everything Various Production were attempting and drop-kicks it into a cocked hat). It's a slow, calculating record is this, stuffed with fine detail, nifty bass maneuvers, mechanised half-step beats for that tribal doom sensation & some very wisely chosen samples. Still essentially lurking on the outskirts of grime rather than the more fashionable areas of dubstep, this is smoky, industrial soul music with occasional neo-classical flourishes that is totally meditative & moving in spite of all its foreboding seriousness & sonic profundity. Fantastico.
