REVIEWS:

Vital Weekly:
Lotta Continua Recordings took some time to release their third and fourth work, and perhaps out of economical reasons they switched to CDRs. However, you can only tell when you look at the discs surface. The rest of the release looks quite professional - good print on the CD and a nice cover. Perhaps the format of CDRs enables to make more releases. On both releases we find the work of Dave Clarkson, also known as Illuminati. One solo and one in collaboration with King Dice. Behind King Dice is one Paul King who plays music as such since 2001 'using primarily electronic means to produce utilitarian music', i.e. in galleries and installations. Apparently in recent years he changed to more rhythms and other instruments. Together with Clarkson they play loops, guitar, keyboards, clocks, cellphones, electronics, and, obviously with such a title, surveillance devices. The nine tracks here are indeed a bit more united around bouncing rhythms, chilling electronics and other means to create images of a police state. But the rhythm parts sounded a bit amateur like. Not a fat rolling bass drum or clicky-click rhythm, but a fairly normal rhythm machine banging. This album worked best for me in it's more quieter moments, such as in the title piece and in 'The Silent Age', or when they touch upon real instruments. Throughout it was nice (FdW)

Side Line magazine
Illuminati is a British composer, which for the Espionage CD joined forces with King Dice (another English artist). This album is a quite interesting trip in dark ambient fields. The opening piece Outbreak is a quite fascinating piece for its diversity. The most original and attractive part of this album emerge from the few electronic bleeps. The Clip Joint cut is a real fascinating listening (DP:6/7)DP
