Something About Nothing this is not, something about something it definitely is. From the semi-beatless opener of "Gain" to the ambient conclusion of "Loss" you are taken on a journey of atmospheres, textures and lovingly crafted beat trickery which has become a staple of his work. That said this is no one trick pony as ICR delivers melody in abundance and this is what truly stands out and comes through in tracks such as "Sense Of Touch" and "Epilog (Dazzle Me)". In a period of drum and bass that seems to be swamped with minimal offerings Zoltan is not afraid to deliver multi-layered breaks of the highest quality which hark back to the halcyon days of the genre. The intricate layering of samples and textures all add to give the LP an epic story like feel which ICR always tries to weave through his work.
This is good honest drum and bass from one of Europe's best artists, in every sense of the word. ~ words by Tony Justice (Modern Urban Jazz, UK)

"ICR takes drum and bass where it was meant to go.” Gerald Belanger/Kinder Atom (nice+smooth/metro breaks)
