"Although undeniably great records that were universally acclaimed, by the end of 2004 Donnacha Costello's 'Colorseries' on Minimise had left both artist and label open to accusations of being too 'retro,' which was never the intention of either. However, with his old machines in storage since January and with a handful of brand new machines and a full Protools setup now residing in Donnacha's studio, such accusations should be banished forever. Thoroughly excited about techno's current period of accelerated growth and discovery he has been working hard on a new computer/machine hybrid sound, with fresh and compelling results. This new release has been available to DJs in digital promo form for some time and is currently receiving heavy play from luminaries such as Troy Pierce/Magda and Steve Bug to name just a few. A: "No Matter What I Do" dark, moody, energetic, highly accomplished production borrowing from the future and the past in equal proportion, twisted snippets of spoken word sharing space with sophisticated digital edits, swinging crunchy rhythms, jerky computerized synths and emotive strings. B: "Bear Bounces Back" a current favourite of Troy Pierce, this is a swinging, loopy, chaotic track that gradually descends into madness over the course of its seven minute duration. Simultaneously reminds of Daniel Bell, Run Stop Restore, Plastikman. Innovative, inventive, tripped out."
