"Detroit's Ersatz Audio label is one of the vanguards of post-electro music, which seems to be getting even more popular. Taking its inspiration from the early-80s synthpop era and adjusting it to the harsh realities of the ironic late-90s, this music is more than just another pointless exercise in cherry retro pastiche pop." -Prospective Magazine
"Detroit's most excellent Ersatz Audio label has been at the forefront of the contemporary electro movement since its inception in 1995 and this comp collects some of the label's finest pastiches of 80s synth pop." -The Wire
"Very recommend, simply one the best electro compilations around!" -Forcefield
