"Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music"

"This stuff is great! Some top notch music from Wales there!" - Tom Robinson


"The Miniature Music Press"

"With the terrific material at their disposal and their indisputable live prowess, the MMP suggests this ride might be one worth getting on" - Simon Read - Miniature Music Press


"Miniature Music Press"

"Set for release in Summer 2010, it seems a great deal of time's been spent pulling in a range of collaborators and capturing a sense of diversity alongside the tried and tested template of strong beats and melodies. Magic Notion, featuring Sabrina Mahi, has a slap-bass funk chic about it. It's Demeaning is a quasi-political knees-up masterpiece with echoes of Soul II Soul reverberating off frantic electronica. Sally Thomas' vocal effort on The Way It Is lends it a lush laidback Massive Attack ambience while Something On My Brain's house tempo plays alongside a Beta Band quirkiness" - Simon Read - Miniature Music Press


"Mix Mag"

"This record has a very diverse and accomplished sound" ****
- Mix Mag


"Adam Walton, BBC Radio Wales"

"An interesting production by a prolific welsh musician" - Adam Walton, BBC Radio Wales


"Buzz Magazine"

"Rock, R&B, Electro, Funk and spaced out vibes this is a great sound." ****
- ZM


"Peppermint Iguana Zine"

"It's always nice when you come across something that is hard to pigeonhole and this little number is definitely a defiant little bugger. Part rock, part dance, part pop, part soul, part funk, but all top quality" ****
- Peppermint Iguana Zine
