9/10 Brian Staff review, 27 November 2006
Breaking up the slew of indie stuff is one of those wonderful little releases that always serve us well. I.E. the forward thinking electronic hip hop album. There's been plenty to scoff about in the French music biz over the years (remember Les Thugs??) but their current hip hop scene sounds a hell of a lot more spanking fresh than our own stale & rather confused "underground". Depth Affect have produced an album of absorbing, rhythmically astute, wondrously atmospheric & gorgeously layered music. Sparkling, inventive gear that is as much in debt to prime ambient works era-Aphex as it is Prefuse's multi-tracked kaleidosc-hop-ic odysseys. It's also one of those albums that has the underground & the mainstream comfortably juxtaposed as whilst the flowing melodies shine brightly & would appeal to the casual music listener as "background" music, the production qualities & "depth" of ermm....."effects" scream the future. Thoroughly absolutely recommended.
