by Satellite Dub

No Questions 05:40
Juxtapose 02:37


Press :

"Brown is plainly a man with big ideas; if he allows himself the confidence to follow them we could be witnessing the birth of a new star." - Fela Lewis (Logo Magazine)

"All sampled voices and industrial rhythms; Satellite Dub perhaps veer between the Chemical Brothers and Cabaret Voltaire, but that's really too narrow a description. 'Jesusfreak' is funky but just enough while 'No Questions' even has singing, a floaty electropop ballad. 'Juxtapose' is more meatily metallic, 'Already Forgotten your Face' scratchy and glitchy ... like I say, a bit of everything." - Miles O'Toole (Is This Music?)

"Part Primal Scream panzer attack ('Jesusfreak Part 1'), part brooding Massive Attack (the soulful 'No Questions'), part gothic Moby ('Already Forgotten Your Face'), Satellite Dub conjures up a stylish brand of uneasy listening; futuristic industrialism that wouldn't sound out of place soundtracking The Matrix (indeed, Sessions...is particularly reminiscent of Rob Dougan) or Bladerunner. And then there is the glimmering light at the end of the tunnel, 'Karmaliberation', the infinite glisten to bathe the soul in calming redemption. Moody and a goody." - Orlando Lovekill (GGMM)

"Brown lists Krautrock and avant-garde composers among his influences but he should also give a nod to Curtis Mayfield, James Brown and the luminaries of 70s funk/soul. On "Chemical Intervention" and "Reflecting Skin" Brown plays the way Maceo Parker plays horns; he doesn't create a rhythmic line so much as slink in between the notes, firing rimshots off rimshots. His hard, angular solos underpin the synthesizers, while the sharp syncopation keeps things moving along. Brown also has a feel for slow, lush music ala Air or some of the Paris loungecore DJs. On "No Questions," Brown's heavily treated vocals flow heavy as chocolate syrup over ice-cream synthesizers, while the synthesizer-beatbox interaction of "Juxtapose" almost qualifies as foreplay. It's got a good beat, you can dance to it and it includes at least two good makeout tracks. How can you go wrong?" - Kevin Filan (Starvox)
