Chain D.L.

Before the sounds of the Middle East became de rigueur sampling materials for hip-hop, Mutamassik was exploring ways of fusing various sounds and styles into a compelling, challenging whole, shards a-flying all the while.”” - Wayne Marshall

about Mutamassik's "Rekkez": ...uneasy...uncompromising...unapologetic"   ” - Sam Davies

— The Wire

about 'Rekkez':  "...a sobering shock...pounding polyrhythmic beats as hard as anything you’ll find, bass tones shaking you at a molecular level, a cornucopia of traditional and classical stringed instruments lost in the trance...Loli applies the culture shock directly to you via jumper cables. Crushing, stunning work...Mutamassik is operating at a whole new level here, and it would behoove you to get on it." (Doug Mosurock)” - Doug Mosurock

CMJ New Music Report

about "High Alert 12"(featuring 4th Pyramid from Definitive Jux Presents, Vol. 3) "...This frightening soundscape is... combined with distinctly Mutamassikian bass-drum thumps. You get the feeling this is an aural tour of how the other side lives, those with war dominating their tank-laden streets. Harkening back to turntable innovator Christian Marclay, though conceptually "heavier" than he tends to be, Mutamassik drops subtle reminders of the mere existence of Third World struggle in these songs -- an unfamiliar, uncomfortable and frightening reality that most music-buying Americans would rather ignore.” - Nick Stillman
