"Back for Basics is John Tejada and Arian Leviste's first full-length collaboration since their remarkable Fairfax Sake album on German Playhouse in 2003 and maybe altogether their best production to date. The 10 tracks of the CD (8 brand new plus the recently released 'Psycho Happiness' and 'Ghetto Platipus') flow together like one piece and come on like a highly-needed techno landmark in the 'conscious' retro electro times of 2005. Just check how the nervous feel of 'Patterns' gloriously blends with the warm liquidy electronic bliss of 'From Empty Words' and back to the energetic 'Triad Jack' -- sensible, intense and tempting for more. Tejada and Leviste's advanced production technique makes a sound you'll be hard put to name, right in the sweet spot between house and techno, breaks and 808s, plucked strings and patch cables, edits and immediacy. It's sunlight and silicon; it's a breath of fresh air. Can you feel it?"
