Reyt Good Music Magazine – “one sleekly bombastic anthem after another, baiting the crowd into a frenzy”

York Calling – “pure party songs about love’s power sung with the conviction and charm of a gospel preacher”

English Rain – “‘The Human League’ and ‘Cabaret Voltaire’ but with the modern production found in latter day Editors”

BBC Introducing – “Stunning! I’ve no idea what will come out next from these guys and that’s exciting”

That Feeling – “reminiscent of musical productions by Bowie.”

VIBE Sheffield – “Think dark pop, electro pop, hip hop, alt-rock and slot Vuromantics in somewhere between that.”

” If you look back over the last fifty or sixty years of popular music, there’s literally millions of songs and records out there that still sound just as good today as when they were released. My mate Ed said ‘If it can be played now then it’s a now record.’ I tend to agree, but that’s only half the story. These days, when I DJ I want to blend all those hip tracks from back in the day with contemporary stuff because whether you like it or not, good music is being released all the time. I love big fat electronic beats, trippy bleeps and massive bass etc. It’s all about striking the right balance on the dancefloor… and having fun.” Tony Bear
