A title such as Studies I - XVII For Samplers and Percussion is likely to draw in a certain kind of listener isn’t it? They’ll be happy with this record from Rupert Clervaux & Beatrice Dillon, but others should check it out too, as this is, for all its rigour, a very enjoyable set of highly rhythmic excursions. LP on Snow Dog Records.

- Studies I-XVII for Samplers and Percussion by Rupert Clervaux & Beatrice Dillon
8/10 Josh Customer review, 6th February 2016
I think this is really great, the first couple of tracks are warmers.. for me it took two songs to become immersed but I soon found myself in that slightly zoned out phase tapping my feet to the simple percussion loops. It is perhaps a bit of an obvious link, however it is difficult not to think of Steve Reich's Drumming, if you like that then get this.
I also think that the cover photograph is so apt, this album feels so collaborative. I can't admit to being hugely knowledgable on Rupert Clervaux, but I do enjoy the stuff that Dillon associates herself with such as the Trilogy Tapes collective and somehow this other world comes through in the sounds. Very simple yes, almost austere in places... if Dieter Rams did music?
