A collection of brilliantly produced pieces. Each track reflects every ounce of love and emotion that was poured into it. This album soothes your ears if you give it an undemanding listen, but give it your full attention, and it will truly immerse you in its sounds.

Truely a class of its own. Eight perfect pieces traveling through your blood system. Rhytmically superior to anything else the Blood Machine graps you from the very first minute to a unbelievable journey. Everything oozes with sheer quality and brilliancy, no sound is useless, no second is boring.

The electronic music of the future is here! On Blood Machine, the skilled and talented Roach and Unis combine delightful, futuristic soundscapes with complex "fractal rhythms". The result is a truly breathtaking and fascinating journey through a futuristic soundworld. Perfect for chilling with headphones.

The compositions really draw you in, in a subtle and slowly evolving manner...and they manage to hold your interest for most of the time (except for some long fade outs).
The sounds are fresh and deep and the rhythms are unlike anything you've heard before.. amazing stuff! Production quality is awesome as well.

Blood Machine is far ahead of anything that tries to create a deep/floating/spacy atmosphere by combining textures and rhythms - from other Ambient/Chillout to Drum 'n Bass to IDM - it all sounds dated and primitive compared to this.
A masterpiece. 10/10
