"Recorded earlier this year at the Finders Art Space in Kuala Lumpur, home base of Goh Lee Kwang and his Herbal International empire. The cover doesn't mention what kind of instruments were used here, but me thinks there is Goh Lee Kwang's turntable and no-input mixer and Blechmann's lptop and software (free from the internet and/or self-built), but all of this is based upon earlier works by both. The recording lasts thirty-six minutes and while I like what I hear, I am not sure if it justifies to be released as a CD; Goh Lee Kwang also has a CDR division for more impromptus live recordings, called Theme Park. But something must have been captivating enough to put it on CD. There is a busy drone here, I assume from laptop and sound effects, along with the likewise busy manipulation of the stylus, feeding into a DJ mixer and maybe more effects. It's intense music, with a mildly distorted edge to it, but it's never loud, noisy or truly distorted, although I can imagine that in this Finders Art Space it might have sounded all quite loud and oppressive. It's solid, it's consistent, it's improvised (including flaws that may bring) and, as said, it's quite nice. Play loud for an optimum result."-Frans De Waard, Vital Weekly
