"Coati Mundi is some synth-out craziness aint it! It's like Grandmaster Flash had a love child with Afrika Bambaattaa that then went on to design a synth, and Coati Mundi is the demo for the world music sound bank. And that isn't a diss I tell thee. Everyman takes me back to when I was young & beautiful and my only care in the world was if I could go out to some sweaty warehouse and dance the night away. A time when everybody was positive and we really thought that music was going to save the world. A time when labels were what your mom sewed into your socks and ecstasy tablets were as big as wagon wheels. Yes mate. They're both really lovely tracks!" - Jim Le Grin O'Reilly.
"Coati Mundi: Love the explosive, spacey intro with the cosmic drum fills. Feels in the same vein as GTFOOML, totally in the pocket, holding back, the track bursting with a stinking funk.Everyman: Fresh. Sparse. Feels dark. Hats all electric and fizzy. Leaning towards Burial in places but then drops unexpectedly in to a banger with the classic Chicago piano sound.On both you can feel the history, the pedigree, the classics; but you stay the right side of everything, keeping it fresh, keeping it new, keeping it!" - Steve Alcock.
"Who'd have thought a Brummy and Hull pairing could bring so much soul and groove to the dancefloor. Their heritage in and around the UK music scene for decades is unmistakable though and shines through here. 10/10" - Rhys Adams / Yesking.
