"Mira Calix's (aka Chantal Passamonte) debut album is back on Warp in the US with two bonus tracks including a gorgeous Boards of Canada remix. From the start it was clear that this was a new take on electronic music, one that reflecting her love of strung out, avant garde guitar blazers like Spaceman 3 and My Bloody Valentine as much as any techno influence. Richly steeped in her own, digitally tampered-with vocals, it followed no particular rulebook but was happy to rip out pages from all of them. One On One is a 16 track introduction that reveals for the first time the true breadth and variety of Chantal's vision, from the elongated, sunkissed chords of its opening to the pummeling beat crunches of 'Skin With Me' and 'Isabella'. Using a mass of sometimes contradictory elements, of savage beauty and rough grittiness, sadness and euphoria, fragrant melody and rhythmic sweat, Chantal, or maybe even the little part of her that is Mira Calix, is redefining electronic music for a new generation."
