Morné Kotzé Fantastic album !
Merging ambient with awesome percussive sounds into a perfect blend
A treat for the listener
RODRIGO SOLANO Like a great trip to the depths of a starry night, bombs of sound falling rhythmically while a vaporous courtain blurs onto everything. Deep dub techno mixed with the exact amount of ambient.
The opening track, Long Morning, is powerful, beautiful and ultra-emotional. It takes you to the next stage.

PS. I bought 4 copies

Orlando Sydney The whole album is super, track 7 is one of the favs, stops me in my tracks from getting anything else done.
On a good system you'll discover the top notch sonics, wide and deep sound stage with pin point imaging. The mastering on this 44.1khz 16 bit album would give hi res a run for it's money.
Very enjoyable album to listen to over and over Favorite track: Shadowy Horizon.
