    Whatever drops some intense audio warfare that (dis)colors tech-house with fierce new wave, electro, industrial and punk hues. [Nov 2001, p.72]
  2. As a producer, Green Velvet is a master of the kind of darkly banging jack-track house that evokes dank airplane hangars and prickly acid nightmares.
  3. Those expecting another helping of stand-up comedy and skewed dancefloor firepower clearly won't find what they're looking for on "Whatever," but the LP certainly hangs together better than any previous Green Velvet CD.
  4. This is smart, thought-provoking material for the twisted.

    These beats and bass lines make for the hardest body music he's ever produced. [Feb 2002, p.111]
  6. His tracks, particularly the opening numbers "Genedefekt" and "La La Land," are paradigms of juicy electro-house, motorvated by the sort of fat synth lines that are both buff and catchy.
