"Mapstation is the solo project of Stefan Schneider, the melodic component in the modernist landscapes of Germany's To Rococo Rot. Mapstation's music is closer to minimalist techno, but even then Schneider can't help but bring a graceful glaze to the music. Another dimension to Mapstation comes from the influence of recent Jamaican dancehall, with Schneider citing it's incorporation of electronic sounds, and his own practice of mixing reggae a cappellas into his DJ sets. On this release, Schneider takes this idea further with a stunning collaboration with reggae singer/DJ Ras Donovan. Schneider and Donovan have evolved a different style, with the voice seeming to mirror the psychotic drift of the music, while at the same time referring to the poetry and ragga tradition in reggae music."
