Resident Advisor

With Compro, his second album as Skee Mask, Müller pulls back slightly from the '90s breakbeat sound he's known for. This time he dips into ambient music, IDM and jungle with an atmospheric lean, creating some of the most powerful yet restrained cuts in his catalogue.

Pitchfork

This record’s emotional valence—between collapse and grace, unity and emptiness—will resonate with anyone who's ever caught an unexpected sunrise in a concrete room. Yet his depth and clarity of vision resists formula. Making music “to get lost in” is overrated—Compro takes you somewhere new.

Exclaim!

Compro represents a refinement of recent Skee Mask material. IDM proclivities and anthemic sub-bass permeate much of the album, where every moment of endearment is matched equally by percussive excellence and sonic intrepidity.

I'm getting Burial x Aphex Twin vibes what's not to like?

The flow to this album is constantly shifting and moving, beautiful and somber one minute and schizophrenic the next. Lots to explore, very detailed and textured electronic beats. Definitely a highlight of the year.

Straight out of nowhere, this albums hit me hard. Great track progression, from an almost ambient/expe style to techno/beat, with great coherence.
Unlike many artists, he didn't sacrifice melody for texture, or confused texture/ambient with boring emptiness. Very balanced, cohesive, strong.
Shame the end of the album doesn't quite hold it together, but the first 8 - 9 tracks make the time fly.
