French industrial music magazine, Obskure has written a review of 'Envisioning Abstraction: the Duality of FluiD' (ALRN008). Below is an excerpt from the review. The full review will be published in the Feburary 2011 issue.
"Right after a rough introduction, including feedbacks, cracklings and a powerful and rounded bass line, the FluiD’s expansionist world takes off. 'The Duality of FluiD' is presented first with a superb artwork that portrays the African continent repainted with the U.S. flag (the work is done by Trey Crim of Digitally Ruined Graphics).

The boundaries are pushed track after track to produce an intelligent and unclassifiable music. On one hand, you have a Trip-Hop coupled with the dirtiest Dub. Of course, some of you could think of Scorn ('The Absent Present'), but the guitars (always played in slow motion) provide a Rock/Heavy touch ('Froz n II'), downright Cold-Wave ('Parallel States') or Noise ('Iron Communique'), that will appeal to many listeners..."
