"Marks him as a peer of Four Tet, Thom Yorke & Andy Stott. Like the best producers of his ilk, Hutchins moulds his stuttering beats & frigid ambient sounds into something just short of pop music " - Stereogum
"From the slow-paced space landing of "I Felt Like A Fox Being Hunted" to the cavernous 4/4 thump of "Nihilism Was Not Sustainable", each track forms its own, nuanced little world." - The FADER
"'Ambient electronica and experimental techno that is by turns woozy, unnerving, and steeped in feelings of millennial malaise. It sounds fantastic through headphones - the locked in sense of claustrophobia perfectly reflecting the overall mood. Original without being difficult, enjoyable while being distinctive.. A triumph" - Loud & Quiet
" Yes ladies and gentleman, Sim Hutchins is a bad gear festishist. He tenderly strokes all that music gear with his road man gloves and beats those sounds up until they're all discombobulated and gasping for air. Here he reveals how his "dark obsession" with the best-worst music gear you can think of helped to shape the sound of 'I Like To Sweep A Room' "
