FACT Magazine

The result is a collection of intriguing, often beautiful miniatures – gems to be cherished and enjoyed, sonic curiosities that reward repeated listening.

Pitchfork

Despite the lurch toward refinement, there are still acres of ambiguity to get lost in here.

Beats Per Minute

Black Is Beautiful is a celebration of exploring with styles, sorting out what works and what doesn’t, fleshing out the good bits and trimming down the bad bits.

Drowned in Sound

Compared to recent Hyperdub releases it feels shabby and uninspiring, as though the highs of Burial and DVA have temporarily blinded the label.

NME

These drifts of pop cultural flotsam feel eerily dislocated, as if there was little joy in the psychic bloodletting.
