    While it won't please those expecting a selection of aggressive dubstep workouts, Severant is a stunning debut that gives up more secrets with every listen.
  2. Nov 14, 2011
    Severant's biggest strength is its optimism--very few of the tracks here fall into introspection, with nearly all of them boasting a crystal ball looked into by the meanest of hawk-eyes.
  3. Nov 14, 2011
    The producer has undoubtedly severed himself from his past work, and in turn, put himself in a class that few hold claim to.
  4. 80
    That same battle between tension and relaxation runs throughout, fueling this understated gem of an album.
  5. Nov 14, 2011
    Because beauty comes thick and fast with this album, and even though it's taken wholesale from more popular sources, here it feels like we're only now hearing it for the first time.
  6. Nov 14, 2011
    It's just Jamie Teasdale, an already accomplished producer, freely chasing his inspiration and coming out the other end with near genius in the process.
  7. Dec 5, 2011
    An intriguing sonic experience from start to finish, Severant is a bold left-field first offering from an artist who's quickly establishing himself as the intelligent dance scene's "one to watch."

    As part of Vex'd, Jamie Teasdale already set himself apart with the music the duo created, and now, as Kuedo, he pushes even further, creating immensely beautiful soundscapes yet unheard of. With his music he creates places and moments to escape from modern everyday live, painting a future for your mind to experience in all it's hope that cries out loud from every single beat - definitely one of the best LPs this year, maybe even one of the best to ever hit mankind so far.
