"Twelve minutes long, trenchant and forbidding but sharply alive, the dub itself is a kind of deep Fort-Da gambit which scoops your brain out for a quick sluice, before replacing it slightly skewiff. Don't drop your guard because of the Tresor." (label info)

"As then, calypso carries the swing. There are four more Lord Kitchener songs in consideration of his wife leaving him for a GI, cricket umpires, a fling onboard an ocean-liner and West Indian poultry besides a hot mambo cash-in, cross-bred under his supervision, and ...

"Characteristically murderous MMM disco-house - sharp and succinct, witty and hedonistic, light and hard-grooving - galloping away like a thorough-bred with the original marimba synth line, and expertly uncovering the fragile soulfulness of the Tshetsha's singing. ...

"Musically, this new stepper appears to swell out of thin air. Immense and minimal, the propulsive groove of this monstrous child of Krautrock is overlain with the blues abstraction of Tikiman's guitar, the swing and effects of Marc Muellbauer's double bass, Delay's ...
