! ! ALBUM OF THE MONTH -- CONTROL VOLTAGE -- SPIN ! !
"The plucked electric bass and fluttering congas of DJ Kolt's "Afrooloove" evoke darting moths and dripping faucets, and Noronha's "Africa Congo" mirrors staccato organ melody with stuttering hand percussion and machine snares. DJ Perigoso's "Dia da Moka" and "Decaléé" are the most disorienting songs on the record, dissonant and soaked in echo, and recasting techno futurism in corrugated tin and pirated electric current."
(Philip Sherburne in Control Voltage for SPIN)
"DJ Kolt’s “Afrooloove” feels huge and roomy, with plenty of hand percussion lolling around behind the track’s gentle skip-and-strum. It’s built with wacky synth sounds, rowdy vocals and unsteady rhythms, and often feels like some tribal ritual from a lost culture. The drums on DJ Noronha’s tunes sound as if they were played live on drum machine pads, especially the feverish “Africa Congo,” which is banged out with a hard-to-pin-down swing that that gives them an off-time quality.
Comparisons have been made between the music’s fiercely local nature and that of grime, and there are some similarities. DJ Perigoso’s tracks have a certain snap that we often associate with the resurgent UK genre"
