"Japanese only CD-compilo of material released on Sweden's Dot label (highly lauded/touted full-spectrum 'lectronica, about as quality-control obsessed as a label can get), featuring recent tracks from Quant, Roupe, Friend & Doktor Kosmos (whose recent Cardigans-related 'Single of the Week' was re-ished stateside via Minty Fresh!), Hab, Star, Argonort, and Man-Q-Neon. Not to be confused with the original Swedish Dot comp The Knights Who Say Dot; only 1 track overlaps, the rest are vinyl-only single tracks on CD for the first time here, or previously unreleased altogether. Musically, we get 11 tracks of cosmo-funk synth-freak (heavy on the analogues), live-feel space-jungle, downtempo make-out breaks, etc..., all of which are soothingly non-offensive. Includes full Japanese-language bios of each artist and a Dot-ography of sorts. An ultimately pleasing offering, providing a graphically superior intro to this up-and-still-coming commune of obscuro-knob-twiddlers." --Hrvatski
