9/10 Brian Staff review, 29 April 2010
Talk about a fookin' cryptic puzzle! That cool young dude with the essence of the beautiful Alice Coltrane in his genes has smacked us with album number 4 - if you include the superb essential primer EP 'Reset'. This is what Warp records are truly about. Sublime electronic journeys. They've unleashed enough of them in the past! 'Cosmogramma' has had one criticism leveled at it & that's it's supposedly cluttered, over-layered passages. Just relax your mind, man, and it's a dream odyssey, far less aural wallpaper than the nevertheless ace 'Los Angeles'. There's so much more to this blinding mix (...for it flows like a dream mixtape) - mind melting percussive onslaughts of a staggering eclecticism throughout, plus the vibrant essence of wild jazz, mellow soul, digital funk & laconic hip-hop; it all freely breathes lungfuls on here. Truly soulful & deep electronica of the highest order, absolutely life-affirming! Maybe this will be a much loved smokers album, I hope so, I'm not always lighting up the chongs but tonight, for this baby, I sure am!
