"Twenty six artists producing the cream of leftfield electronic music have been given a brief: to take the phrase “in Death's dream kingdom”, or the whole of TS Elliot's poem as inspiration. Vibrating with vivid sonic references, the poem is a feast for the ears, which makes it a ripe subject for musical interpretation.
Not an album in the traditional sense, it brings together a seriously diverse array of talents into a coherent whole with a vivid aesthetic reverberating through it. It occupies a similar space to the great home listening electronica acts of the 90s – FSOL, Global Communication, the Artificial Intelligence axis – but there are no throwbacks here: this is radical in sound and thought. Dark music for dark times."
