PRESS FOR TEXTURE:
"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
"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."
-Dan Black, The Sonny Wilkins Chronicle
"Proof of the city's ever emergent hip-hop undercurrent. Synaesthesia makes for a promising release... indicative of greater things to come."
- Martin Skivington, The Skinny
"Melodic yet densely packed delivery which demands more than a single listen... There’s added interest in seeing the identity of Scottish alongside other UK hip-hop breaking down into recognisable voices and continuing down the path to sounding like an independent entity, free, in part, from the traditional behemoth of the US... A sense of self already blossoming at times, but still outside of the majority... another quality release and well worth a download."
- Enough Records Blog
"Echo Boomers is a beaut – fantastic verses well delivered alongside sweet production from Morphamish."
- Mark Scanlan, aka Kobra Audio Labs
"Stakes a firm claim for BLM's position as one of the top labels out there... Strikes a proper balance between lyricism and production as opposed to obsessively focusing on the former in the absence of the latter... A nice depth of sound, which leads to an immersive listening experience, heavy beats deftly drawing you in... Luscious, hypnotic... Tortuously deep flows."
- Dylan Orchard, for The Creative Uncommons
"A shimmering slick of cyberpunk hip-hop."
- Thanks Tom Hanks
