“....a Bonobo-esque sound, an upbeat feel good mix of brass, playful synths, afro drum beats and catchy riffs that will set you in a happy trance. This one is sure to fill the dance floor in clubs around Ireland soon.” -Nialler9 Blog
“He’s more of an engineer than a producer, he composes music rather than just put loops together.
-Ger Kellett on DoubleScreen, District Magazine.
“...a hyper-paced piece that ripples dizzyingly courtesy of Double Screen, it’s pace is rapid and there's a determination to drive home what the trio are all about as the plonky beats escalate and hammer down….Double Screen destroys it in the most gratuitously enjoyable way to wrap up proceedings courtesy of yet another drum and bass extravaganza.”
