"Hey! Just wanted to write and say how awesome your
new albums are! I'm especially loving Nanoteknika! :D Have
it on repeat while I work at the moment! Has a very Rez
(old Dreamcast/PS2 game) feel to the sound (melodic soft
trance) - I can totally picture shooting random enemy ships
to your music! ;-)" - Michael Griffin.
"While "never boring" is an accurate choice
of words, it's worth pointing out that this is an excellent
album overall. Each track carries with it a sense of enthusiasm
and great production value. For those who have followed
Bjorn's music through the tracker scene and video games,
there is a comfortable familiarity in each track and the
names "Dr. Awesome" and "Scorpic" will
cross your mind from time to time. For everyone else, these
are solid electronica tracks. Some have a driving rhythm,
some have funky grooves, but all are well worth the listen."
- Matt McLellan.
"The two new albums ("Crystal Horizon" and
"Nanoteknika") are both unbelievably good. Stellar.
Good as in "if my house was on fire and I could only
grab a handful of albums I'd grab these" sort of good.
These are easily some of the finest works I have (and I
have over 8,000 tracks of music to choose from). Anyway...
The day I got Crystal Horizon I probably looped the full
album about 9 times in a row (and many times more over the
next 3 days). I listen to music for various reasons (from
just to have something on when I'm working to trying to
relax and listening more attentively). This album has so
many layers to it its character changes depending on how
much attention you give it. I've enjoyed it with headphones
and speakers, both during work and relaxation, and continue
to find new aspects to appreciate each time I play it.
Nanoteknika has many similar qualities, for the same reasons.
What I find impressive is that absolutely nothing on either
album could be called filler. Certainly some tracks are
absolutely outstanding (Quantum Paradise is one I'll loop
individually 5-10x in a row sometimes) but every track has
something to offer and stands on its own." - Dan
