"Interstellar spaciousness from European avant-garde outfit Raf and O" EXCLAIM! MAGAZINE

"Four versions of the leading ‘Time Machine’ journey beyond the stratosphere, kooky, mysterious and breathy, attracting an impressive trio of sonic cosmonauts"

"Southeast London duo, Raf and O (aliases Raf Mantelli and Richard Smith) experiment between the air, place and space that occupies where nature's breath is conjoined by manufactured ambient excercises. Their emergence was made known with the Has The Air Gone Walking? 10" and their take on David Bowie’s Aladdin Sane classic, "Lady Grinning Soul"; where Mantelli and Smith explore the connecting fields and magneticism between the acoustic and electronic relations...The strums and subtle poly-rhythmic drum arrangement and programming create the sound of two desert nomads walking the earth in quest of finding new waters, and perhaps new time zones. Raf's vocals and the production slowly spin, and twirl; whispering their song like tomorrow's cautionary lullabies sent backward to today as an omen of intrigue" IMPOSE MAGAZINE
