    Devotees of J Dilla and Flying Lotus in particular should investigate. [Apr 2013, p.95]

    We Will Not Harm You does just what it does on the tin, and so much more.

    It obeys no single genre but it sounds like 20 years of London at night. [Mar 2013, p.98]

    We Will Not Harm You operates much like a London Sunday market in its vibrant, assorted survey of the electronic melting pot

    Lightly experimental and laced with playful wit, this is quality gear from a seasoned elder statesman. [Apr 2013, p.71]

    Although it’s not perfect, We Will Not Harm You is a significant advance on [his] previous efforts.

    It is not quite playful enough or quite inventive enough to truly excel, but it is a largely fine effort from a man who anyone with an interest in UK electronic music would surely find to be well worth investigating.

    We Will Not Harm You is well-crafted enough that the looping repetition is pleasing, with the dominant bass thwacking out grooves which just play on and on.

    Afrobeat, techno, Latin rhythms, jazz and electronica fly by thick and fast on We Will Not Harm You in a dizzying display that's both comfortingly familiar and wildly futuristic.

    A problem with We Will Not Harm You is that, at times, Dobie seems to run out of highway, and just ends songs mid-stream, rather than building upon them and taking them to what might be a natural conclusion.

    The tracks are curiously undramatic, punching elements in and out like a demonstration reel. [Mar 2013, p.54].
