"Roel Meelkop is your 'no-bullshit' type of person. Always open for new work, new challenges, no big stories. Recently he completed with his pal Peter Duimelinks and Ralf Wehowsky a three way collaboration, and now he presents another one of those 'I mail you, You mail me' works. This time with Toy Bizarre, who have not yet thrown off their 'group' identity, behind which there is one person. The CD has, oh wonder, four pieces. One solo by Roel, one collaboration between Roel and Toy Bizarre and two solo by Toy Bizarre. Roel's solo piece is of the usual high Meelkopian standard. It dwells for a great part on (partly processed) environment recordings. Slowly the whole piece is torn apart and small sounds remain. Then samples take over. The collaborative track is cleverly placed after this one: familiar sounds from the first piece return. If I understood correctly this is a linear track: each artist got equal parts and on harddisc it's put together. Small bit of Meelkop, small bit of Toy Bizarre, small of Meelkop, etc. It turns out to be a somewhat more electronic piece with various interceptions." -- Frans DeWaard
