PRAISE FOR 'PARASOMNIA'
"This. Shxt. Slapz. Brooding poetic flow over nocturnal productions."
- Blam Blam Fever
Short but intense... A dark urban feel combining aspects of hip-hop, dubstep and post-modern electronica... Foreboding but hypnotically attractive... A good bet for the nihilists in the crowd.
- Free Albums Galore
"Texture launches straight into a huge, dark cavern, doom laden and compelling... the atmosphere generated is immense and mind consuming... The entry of fluid, rapid-fire vocals works brilliantly as a mere sonic compliment to everything else, but the lyrics are phenomenal: dropping glittering turns of phrase, confrontational wordplay and above all a complex, ideas led viewpoint."
- Brainleak Station
"The epitome of the trilogy: the production and lyricism cut directly to gullet of what it feels like to be living in the 21st Century... Texture's yricism has always been top-notch... but he’s managed to challenge himself — and therefor the listener — on Parasomnia... With work from masters of their craft like Dustmotes, Krowne, and Monkeytribe, the album speaks through sweeping, delayed glitches and valleys of 21st Century sound... Download this. Listen to it on the train as the graffiti-ed factories with broken windows fly by… The woman to your left is e-mailing her partner how she thinks they should “take a break”… Someone else is jotting down hand-written scribbles ahead of you into a leather-bound notebook… The lyrics are bouncing around in your head, unable to get out, they’ll become a part of you, and you will make your own stories."
