ALLMUSIC ON 94 DISKONT:

94 Diskont is undoubtedly a standout in the field of electronically advanced, glitch-heavy music. In addition to having clear resonance with those primarily interested in process, this record resides in an autonomous and highly aesthetic sonic universe, where bits of production and granulated noise easily melt into warm, repetitive arrangements. 94 Diskont was made with a lot of productive mediation and gadgetry, but the seams don't show.

DIRECKSHUN ON INIT DING:
Microstoria is a fine experimental electronic outfit composed of Oval's Markus Popp and Mouse On Mars' Jan St. Werner -- but you wouldn't expect the collaboration to be as literal as Microstoria turned out to be. For all their combined creative juices, Microstoria is simply a meeting halfway between the mechanical atmosphere of Oval and the complex melodic quirks of Mouse On Mars. A simplistic formula to draw, perhaps, but it's surprising how very well the two styles of music mesh. Oval's random aloofness is retained, but its mechanical clicks and whirrs is replaced by warm synths and sporatic bits of electronic melody, a clear influence from Mouse On Mars. It's a compliment to both styles of each groups, and a pleasure in and of itself -- there's a reason they continue to release albums eleven years later. Init Ding is a great debut album from two artists who understand different aspects of complexity, and the resulting chemistry is palpable.
