I received some copies of this promo after a long search, and I must admit that Louis' music is so inspired and deep detroit-rooted, even if it's really smooth, gentle and light.

Beautifully crafted sounds, simple but effective dry rhythms, nice melodies and pure inspiration in more than a couple of tracks (The Question of You, Soul Purpose).

Definitely alongside Detroit Escalator Company's work, Tony Drake, John Beltran's "Ten days of blue" and Sean Deason's "Allegory & Metaphor".

"Watch out for this guy. This cat is dangerous!!" - Derrick May (referring to Louis Haiman before his opening set @ Movement festival 2004)

True words. Very true. I was lucky enough to recieve a promo of this album and let me tell you; stellar! Louis' music, this album in particular to me sounds like a return to the mystique in Detroit (inspired) electronic music. Remember when that stuff was fresh and new? This music adds a ray of light onto the status-quo, all the while retaining that 'Virtual Sex' era vibe. Deep, emotional, funky, and most importantly, different. Listen!
