    An intense, heady listen nudging the continuum that little bit further.

    Where Bridges felt like extensions of his legendary freeform live set, Reeling Skullways is far tighter in focus and execution.

    Bass Clef may have created a solid album, but, in the end, this lovely exercise leaves a sense that it was all a bit too easy for him.

    Reeling Skullways is a paean to the previous step on techno's evolutionary ladder: the analogue acid sounds of Detroit, Chicago, and Manchester. [Jul 2012, p.69]

    It's as timeless in its own small way as the Chicago canon that inspired it. [Jun 2012, p.46]

    Skullways settled into a sound that's unstuck in time, and works for both the brain and behind.
