“They’ve signed to XL, collaborated with Joy Orbison, remixed Thom Yorke, appeared in GTA, and generally seem to be the UK techno group of the moment. Their fabric Presents mix, then, comes at an auspicious moment where they seem poised to approach chart-threatening, Bicep-style territory.” – Resident Advisor
“‘So U Kno,’ the Overmono track that opens the mix, is particularly excellent: an iron-clad 2-step battleship with an irresistible hook, the steel of techno colliding against the rubbery skitter of UKG.” – Pitchfork
“Brothers Tom & Ed Russell (also known as Truss and Tessela), two of the most prolific UK producers of this generation, who’ve written some of the most memorable techno tracks of the past half decade, add another exciting release to their already praiseworthy legacy. If you ever asked yourself how a peak time UK techno set would sound like after more than a year of absence from clubs, here lies the answer.” – The Quietus
“The UK’s current hot dance duo extract serious mileage out of an insistent, imperceptibly bending three-note motif, before some skull-massaging chords arrive to roll your eyes back.”
– The Guardian
