massive release. the first two songs are already a very good reason to buy this ep. amazing "drum and bassisch" stuff, but much more creative and heavier. very good!

Houdini is one of the most beautiful tracks ive ever heard. organic arpeggios, chord progressions, space, tape delay, distorted 808, and a distant presence. what a track.

It would be unfair to expect from Jega the well-trodden complex stylization that characterizes many other Skam or Planet-Mu artists. Rather what we get in a release like "Card Hore" is attention to raw and pure form that is unparallelled, for example, in a song like "Star"- arguably one of the most awesome of its kind. What I especially like about Jega is his dedication to balancing the classical tenets of form, harmony, with the vanguard (and often debilitating) techniques of modern electronics that characterizes many of his contemporaries. Looking forward to hearing some new releases! It's been a while since "Geometry", hasn't it?

I really didn't find this release to be as high quality as the SKAM catalogue before it. It would be well suited for a Planet Mu or Rephlex release but not up to the standards of SKAM. Jega isn't a bad artist but all of his production is so similar it gets a bit boring after a while. Don’t get me wrong I think Phlax is one of the best SKAM releases to date. With this EP it seems like he took Phlax and turned the tempo up. The beats are pretty simple, which isn't a bad thing but all around the release is simple and that's not what SKAM stands for.
