I am gobsmacked - this track is absolutely devastating! A deep, claustrophobic groove that just keeps pulling you under. One of his best!

I'm pretty sure my ears pick up a processed sample of Mister Monday's 'Future' (Open) on 'Decompression' running all the way through the cut....

This is one of the 2 matthew jonson 12"s I dont have, the other being IIWII 001 which i would pick up if i could find. "Decompression" on the other hand, is left out of my collection by choice. I can understand the hype behind him, memorable minimal melodic techno is a good thing! The bassline on "Decompression" almost sounds like modern drum and bass, which is not a good thing, at least for me. He strays from that limited formula his best work is inspired by and it's definitely for the worse.

I have to say for the moment Mr. Jonson can do no wrong. His SH101 tuned basslines almost gives this a modular system feeling like it was produced on an early moog. These bass tones dominate most of his production and simply put, "I am addicted!" From his amazing "typerope" release on Spencer's west coast, "It is what it is" label this release proves to be a step forward. "As I think with most of his releases, they are well worth every penny!" - soultek

Although upon first listen, this release may seem monotonous, there are sublte shifts in the sound sculpting. To really appreciate this release, it must be heard on a massive sound system. Decompression's bassline is just devastating - for the listener and the dancefloor.

Someone's got to say this amid all the hype surrounding this artist: this particular release at least, is pretty tepid and hardly worthy of all the plaudits. Side A is one long boring groove albeit with interesting elements. It doesn't change and it's probably too slow. Side B? I can't remember. There is a lot of talent in this chap make no mistake and it's right to expect great things from him. But I for one will be keeping a sense of reality.
