      This album ages like wine. I revisited it recently and it sounds even better than it did ten years ago. I'm pretty sure it won't lose anything of its taste in 2033 when you'll give it a spin.

        Incredible LP by one of the UK's finest exports. So glad I picked this up when I did.

          This may just be my favorite album of the 2010s. Hasn't aged a second since my first listen. "Flight" is one of my most cherished tunes for the dancefloor.

                Extremely jazzy vibes all over this stunner of an album.

                Apart from that, "Dinas Oleu" has a very destinctive sound - spacious, mystical, warm and organic. Actually, just take a look at the sundrenched cover photo, which perfectly illustrates the sonic beauty awaiting the listener.

                Finally releasing his debut album after almost ten years of providing tight quality beats with a constant focus on the dancefloor, Leif Knowles surprises us by suddenly broadening his sound spectrum to panoramic widescreen format.

                He combines straight and broken beats, dubby techno goodness, genius bass workouts, a slightly balearic patina, beautiful rhodes chords, minimalistic expressionist synth solos, dreamy vocal snippets and tons of good groove into an extremely mature signature sound which constantly morphs back and forth between its polarities - be it density and spaciousness or highly "natural" and boldly artificial sounds.

                "Dinas Oleu" has an intimate, meditative quality to itself.
                Nothing feels rushed or forced here - calmness reigns, while we observe a constant state of vivid sonic flux without getting attached to it.

                A wonderful album from start to finish.
                Makes me smile in wonder and delight, again and again.
