8/10 Dave Staff review, 25 January 2012
A hark back to basics (Ohhh!) from this dance lad Alec Feld, a New Yorker who just loves house music, disco and Ebeneezer Goode (probably). This LP/CD or whatever the fuck you wanna call it, “Dark Matters”, combines a lot of these elements and does feel like a loving homage to early '90s raves, Spliffy jeans and euphoric musical dropouts. This album flows seamlessly from one sweet cut to the next. It does sound strangely familiar does this rekid, it has samples that will please many a Detroit house music nut, and it has elements that have definitely been danced/gurned to by many a worshipper of the church of Rave. It also somehow sounds quite scrappy and honest. It's not clocked in to much scenester bullshit. It seems to be more of an experiment in dance/house music production; the notion that there is no way to make music correctly. Some of the tunes though are anything but blind stabs in the dark, some of the cuts on this puppy do sound like genuine house classics, like the fantastic 'Tracewave' and the housey squelch of track 2 'Nothing More'. It's a sweet album that's quite an all encapsulating listen from self-confessed space nut Alec Feld. Step back to the early '90s and recall where you were when MR C dropped that bomb... ”...anybody got any Veras...?? LOVELY!! HAHAHAHA!!!!”
