9/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 18 January 2012
Gonjasufi - the name you know. After wowing the world with his Warp debut 'A Sufi And A Killer' in 2010 Sumach Valentine returns with what I would consider to be a full album, though it's been touted as a mini LP. So, we've got ten new tracks from the mind of Valentine to mull on and what a fantastic collection of obscure-o gems it is indeed. Valentine's vocals are as intriguing as ever and it's cute to hear he's his better half singing on 'Feedin' Birds', the stand out jam of the album for me. Instrumentally these new numbers are verging on pure sample abuse with melodies and beats being stretched to breaking point. The beats on 'Venom' for example are time stretched so severely you can imagine them falling apart completely. The resulting sound is not so much mellow, but the equivalent of wearing lead shoes to dance in. Real Valium sluggishness and super furry. I fucking love it.
