Nice album.
I'd love to have Surface II Reconstructed on vinyl to play out. This is the sort of dub techno stormer I like to share with people.

Surface Variations open up with driving rhythm, copious amount of bass and a bit abrasive yet highly subdued and subterranean even chords, a charactetistic that is being maintained throughout the tracks Surface I - IV. On the other hand we have the "Surface" tracks without numbers, namely Reprise, Metamorphosis and Last Surface, and those are a most welcome breather as they venture into the ambient realm, exploring vast sonic textures with some gente beat adding some groove into the proceedings.

Overall, even though this doesn't push the envelope, it's still a solid, solid excercise in dub techno, that carries some added value in a form of a gorgeous hardback book type package.

As for Greyscale, It's good to see new labels being established and releaseing quality material, especially in this day and age, bearing in mind all the risks involved in such a venture (as I'm writing this their second CD release is up for pre-order so kudos for them, hope they keep it up).
