8/10 Brian Staff review, 06 May 2011
This chap has been a quiet fixture on the Bristol scene for a while now and his turn to shine is now! So after collaborations with progressive dubsteppers Peverelist & Shortstuff we've that all important "artist album" to judge him by & it's shaping up to be a really nice journey! Working with analogue gear, he creates a full, dynamic sound-world that often touches on ethereal and soundtrack-y 80's pop dreamscapes whilst being firmly rooted in contemporary UK bass music. That's what 'Diamond Islands' and the quietly euphoric 'Phoenix' suggest with their soft melodic keys & glistening vistas. It's one of those fresh yet nostalgia-leaning albums full of woozy melodies, funky rhythms & spangled synth strokes, retro-tastic drum tracks & irresistibly nostalgic auras. The driving force behind the tunes seems thoroughly modern & progressive, mind, and what I like most is that despite it being a distinctly easy & tuneful listen, there's enough learned production touches & engaging master-strokes to keep your ear glued on detail-mining duties. A totally lush sounding record from start to finish, definitely a worry-free one for those long journeys I reckon....
