"Listening to the tape from start to finish feels a little like an education in electronic music history" [Unstablebeats]
"What was produced was an hour’s worth of solid down-tempo, skweee, dnb, FM and chip with enough soul, rhythm and ambiance to make an hour feel like it almost instantly passes by in a bass-filled cloud of bliss" [Chiptunes = WIN]
"Prepare your brains for the greatest Skweee (et al.) release of 2014! Props to Scott for making this happen! Check it out!" Norman Müller [Byte FM]
"I try not to spoil the tape by listening to the mp3s too much before but the ending was definitely a cool surprise!!!" [Karl Marx Stadt]
Gulls - Harmonic Mind ~ "The elaborately textured production subsists on warm percussion and waves of colorful synths, working together to create a lush atmosphere". [xlr8tr]
"Tape compilations are getting hotter in the extended skweee community, and this one doesn’t spare the heat. An interesting mix of minimal synth jams and forward thinking bass tunes, Aces is a wild ride through strange styles that come together under a tightly controlled 160/80 tempo guideline. This comp features a few veteran skweee masters alongside some new names that made a serious impact. Our very own Smoked Meat Fax Machine appears with a synth-laden r&b slow jam" [Ancient Robot]
