"Richard van Kruysdijk & Marie-Claudine Vanvlemen's eponymous debut Sound Effects was hailed by many as a great collection of intricate nu-jazz / trip noir / future soul gems. Their four EP's on M4S, until now only released on 12" vinyl, are equally evocative, more danceable without being identikit, less vocal, more instrumental, yet just as at home on your bedroom stereo as in a club. Remastered and mixed into a 72 minute trip of jazz influenced broken beats, blurring the lines between live and studio, sampling and live playing, Needlework displays the authentic musical logic of Sonar Lodge, presented by themselves as well as interpreted by renowned remixers like Domu, Atomhockey's Kasar, Attica Blues' Tony Nwachukwu, Relaxo Abstracto, Max 404 and Cellvoice. Starting with tight broken beats, Needlework digs ever deeper into more acoustic, loose drummed nu-jazz with a darker edge, maintaining the same clarity in sound and atmosphere. Needlework has become much more than just a megamix of crossfaded tracks, it is a beat-based collection of songs that cover the range between minimal electronics to maximum jazz-funk complexity, inviting both jazz aficionados and clubbers to bask luxuriantly in the seductive, cinematic ambience."
