"This is a postcard from the darkest edge of the European club scene, a dispatch about concrete and curfew. It''s the anti-Ibiza, all-Gdansk grey suntans and bad nerves. And it''s also one of the most impressive dance albums of the year, a relentlessly inventive joyride through a harsher, more necessary underground." - VENUE
"What do you picture when you think of Eastern Europe ? Pickled gherkins, death metal and rusty old public buses ? Well so does Roland From Poland, who''s managed to sample all this and much, much more into the strange and serene lo-fi brew that is ''Baltic Beats''...steam trains and bus springs blend into a trip-hop soundscape that is so uplifting it makes you wonder if Poland is really depressing at all."
