LOW STOCK LEVEL
"Even though he is known best for his bass playing, he's capable of so much more as you will soon notice when he drops his first collection of 'beats' for the Eastern Developments music label. Not just a funky 45 collection and a sampler but more of an intertwining of Joshua's musical capabilities within sampled landscapes -- as he holds down a variety of instruments avoiding looped up monotony. From the first beat I heard ringing out of his MPC. Straight rhythms, fucked up rhythms, no rhythms at all. Reminder aka Josh Abrams has been a fixture in the Chicago/Thrill Jockey music scene for a decade."
