Did this not get a vinyl release?

Everybody in Europe should watch out for Pnau - they will be the kings of rock in years to come.

This is the kind of release that doesn't date and doesn't fit into any one genre. It takes you on a ride, from track 1, a slammin pice of tech-house, through to the title track "Sambanova" - which can only be the best deep house track produced in Australia, there is just variety and creativity in overdrive.

If you take a jazzy flavour, add a touch of electro, lots of phat beats and various instrumentals - you are geeting close to the feel.

Often people try to categorise music - fact is, put on Sambanova and people will ask you, "what IS this?" and the only appropriate answer will be "PNAU!".
