Headphone Commute - "...On Arteater, fragments of memories get triggered with nearly recognizable sounds, and I’m floating on the edge of consciousness that only exists between a dream state and wakefulness. Eyes still open I begin to respond emotionally to images unheard and sounds unseen, patterns unlatched and voices unhinged. This is a bipolar trip into the sensory mind’s eye, where the soundscape of the untapped cognizance is only known to the very self – that twisted psyche of dreamscapes, explored and returned to in deadly flashbacks and lucid nightmares. This is the place that my inner architect has built, and Arteater is the soundtrack to these abstractions..."

I Die You Die - "...UK producer Jason Thomson has been working in the same soundscape vein as the likes of Future Sound Of London (and has released material in conjunction with FSOL) for several years, whittling jet-black architecture and futuretek out of claustrophobic sweeps and clangs, pushing the idea of ambient techno to its very limits. Arteater reverse engineers the sort of sample-heavy urban noir worlds that Burial and others have constructed for themselves. While the latter might build entire rhythmic tracks out of a pair of metallic clangs or sound effects, Thomson sculpts individual sounds and passages, only to toss them about the mix with haphazard abandon, recreating a cluttered ambiance where others might seek to impose a more familiar and rhythmic order..."
