'A delectable oceanic treat of immeasurable depth and grand ingenuity, Core Alter delivers a fantastic debut on Kaer'Uiks with Voice Array, offering an orchestrated deep ocean adventure oozing with character and very well developed sonic story-telling.'
'Core Alter is new to these ears, but not anymore, the duo comprised of Steven Baxter and Elliott Watson manage to mangle sublime electronic nuggets from out of this planet, somewhere between Autechre’s robust modular slabs to Phoenecia’s subdued rhythmic grooves, Voice Array is a half-dozen collection of petrified tunes spanning 44 minutes via wicked glitch mayhem. A smattering of shapeshifting drums, flickering melodies, and erratic broken beats allows each piece to expand and unfold its hidden voice. Laser blasts and deformed percussion eradicates the landscape as precision blips’n bleeps hone in on caramelized transitions—Core Alter allows these macroscopic elements to marry with crunchy atmospherics that simply do not let go. Minimizing electronics with maximum effect, Voice Array is a standout and necessary EP.'
