Boomkat Product Review:
"For his debut full length on Planet E, the dexterous producer has crafted an album of contrasts that gleefully scribbles outside the lines for an otherworldly 12-track trip of galactic proportions that mines inspiration from everyone from Todd Terje to Marvin Gaye and Quincy Jones, while retaining an undeniable thread to the Motor City. Launching with the steely tension-filled ‘Born To Be Wise’ that sounds somewhat akin to the opening musical score of a Bond film, if said flick was set on Mars, the tempo is soon set to disco via the ultra-smooth vocal injection from Hard Ton on ‘Celestial Love Rising’. There’s a heavy hint of a future house classic when Lig teams up with lauded vocalist and former Octave One collaborator Ann Saunderson for ‘No Judgment’ that’s already been generating serious heat since being released as a single recently. The masterful ‘Oostende Blues’ is the Belgian’s own masterful tribute to his hero Gaye spanning energetic tech funk that gradually tempers to reveal more tender melodic tones. In a highlight heavy album, the work is fittingly rounded out by the Terje-inspired ‘Superstring Theory’ that mixes up disco, funk and ‘90s rave vibes all executed with astounding compositional skill – no mean feat from an artist who’s never had a music lesson in his life"
