BLUES CONTROL Puff LP / CD
*** "Blues Control via a postmodern portal; gorgeous sheens of rust that fissure throughout, harmonicas smoke in the distance, guitars splatter, keyboards ooze white hot neo psychedelic lava. Blues Control seem beget from the prominent clang & snarl of Dead C, who was beget by This Heat, who was beget by Faust."
BLUES CONTROL Blues Control LP / CD
*** "Blues Control might just be the missing link between Van Halen and legendary experimentalist Henry Flynt. It’s a hazy, spaced world that exists between fuzzed distortion, jabbering electronics, and a lazy, stay-in-bed psychedelic glaze, with rhythmic keyboards pulsating below. Oh yeah, I gotta mention the humid bikini-vibe that permeates the entire album."

THE VERY BEST Warm Heart Of Africa CD
*** "European production duo Radioclit and Malawian singer Esau Mwamwaya concoct new global pop that lands somewhere between a Michael Jackson break-beat and a dancier version of Paul Simon's Graceland."
