"The spacey-passively-paced LP intro 'Bergen' was the first to be picked up by Dekmantel’s Casper Tielrooij, yet it was the electro- orientated 'Zeeweg' that became the template for the rest of the record. ‘Zeeweg’ is followed up by 'The Creation of Lalibela', which plays on the world music vibe with ethereal and fun key patterns, influenced by the work of Mulatu Astatke. On the flip side, 'Always Be With you' is one of the LP's standout tracks, epitomising the new album’s country settings, and featuring his girlfriend on vocals. Trago sticks to his dance floor roots with 'Faith Belongs to Us', while album closer 'Working Machines' plays with resonance and atmospherics, creating a moody, pulsing yet stylish rhythm."
