::: "The sounds of Dalhous take on suggestive power as they spend time with you, wandering the moors of interiority to find the temporary answers tumbling there." (Tiny Mix Tapes)

Ricardo Donoso (bra)
::: ""It’s called Sarava Exu and it’s brilliant. Donoso has refined his clattering, ambient noise across seven tracks of torrential gusts, pummelling bursts of techno and metallic, clawed synths." (Crack magazine)

Karen Gwyer (uk)
::: "On releases for No Pain in Pop and Opal Tapes Karen creates digital psychedelia, toying with kosmische repetition, manipulated vocals, drone and expansive electro pop. She's been compared to OPN and Julianna Barwick, and her latest work brings to mind Prurient's recent dabbling in dark techno."

Matthew Collings (uk)
::: "Despite the fact that most of his work is mediated by technology, he's far more excited by the sound of acoustic. Featuring brass ensembles and a string quartet the instruments and sounds are full of cracks, breath, embedding rough materials informed by luscious intentions."

SATURDAY MAY 23rd - ST JOHN AT HACKNEY
Jon Hassell (us) + Ensemble
::: "Almost all of the musicians I meet at the moment seem to regard Jon Hassell as one of the God-like geniuses of contemporary music." (David Toop - The Wire)
::: listen: www.jonhassell.com
::: "A flood of symphonic guitar and electronics overwhelms the mix and we're reintroduced to the signature sound world that's unique to this man's music - he's one of the most imitated electronic artists out there." (boomkat)
::: listen: www.fennesz.com
Greg Haines (uk)
::: "Ambient, techno, dub, electronica and classical music come to mind when listening to the music, but Where We Were doesn't fall under any of those labels. It's a strange beast composed of analog synths, old tape delays, piano, vibraphone, percussion and free, boundless approach." (Igloo Magazine)
