"There is a bit of hiss, there is a lot of deep drone sounds and there is a slow development of the sounds within the time frame of seven and half minutes. The deafening aspect of the music somewhat seems not there that much, but then I wasn’t playing this very loud. Great music"
--- Vital Weekly

"Subespai offers silence to own the space without disappearing / appearing, combining the small variations on floating drones to become hypnotic. A transversal EP linking oblique experimentation and sonic meditation. Very strongly recommended."
-- Silence And Sound

"Silence fades over the sound like a blanket of sleep, allowing the final number to clear its throat. As the airwaves become ever more still in between the art, reflecting on the music allows a non-judgemental appreciation of the uniqueness and novel element from which it grows. Although many artists work in abstract and experimental sound, it takes a lot of courage to strip it down to bones such as these."
-- The Electro Review

"This latest offering from the wonderful Subespai takes a different direction/ approach to his previous EP, on this tape you'll hear a couple of very minimal long droning "micro-noise" sounds not dissimilar to that of a halogen light with it's piercing buzzes [or T.V static when there's a loss of signal, or even a big loud set of power lines/electricity tower], with the added subtle back ground noises creating a slightly spooky feeling of being locked inside alone late at night in a large empty warehouse or something. Side B continues this style with a slightly different "electrical buzzing" noise and a more noticeable background sound with a build up of heavy drone effects... both are great! plus it shows us the diversity of different sound Subespai experiments with, and manages to pull off well."
