«Shortly after the recent collaboration with his friend Dave Zeal - the excellent 'Blueprints for insect architecture' - here's Daniel Maze once again with a solid release, delivering his signature electronic music with ambient flavour.
'Lush Premiere' comes almost six years after Daniel's debut here at test tube, with the stunner 'How's the serenity EP' and keeps treading more or less the same way, mixing tape with voice loops (just compare the old 'Hungarian Grandparents' with the new '1933') and now adding some glitch minimal techno-ish beats, putting some nods on your head while doing it, which is a nice twist.

Daniel also has released works at 12rec and at the now extinct EKO label and Standard Klik Music, and another one on Magyar, a canadian imprint. They are all excellent of course, and highly recommended to anyone who's interested in this sort of straightforward ambient and wants to learn more about Daniel's work.

There is still plenty of glitch and lots of tape loops waiting for your love here, so put on your headphones, sit back, relax and enjoy another awesome Daniel Maze release.»

«El penúltimo lanzamiento de test tube es este Ep que firma Daniel Maze, una colección de electrónica minimalista con bases crujientes y melodías escondidas. Un gran disco que puede recordar al sonido de raster-noton.»

«Na, mal wieder Lust zu träumen oder die Seele baumeln zu lassen? Dann ist dieses Album perfekt für euch. Einfach die Kopfhörer aufsetzen und zurück lehnen, denn den Rest erledigt Herr Maze für euch. Insgesamt 8 Tracks werden hier abgeliefert und verblüffen den Hörer. Die Tracks sind nicht für den Tanz gedacht oder um den Nachbarn zu ärgern. Vielmehr wird versucht, mit den verschiedensten Tönen und Frequenzen Musik als ganzes darzustellen. Herrn Maze ist es gelungen, eindeutig. Wirkt es auch manchmal etwas verstörend, ist es doch die Leichtigkeit der Tracks, welche verzaubernd.Der passende Soundtrack für die nächste Bus- oder Bahnfahrt. Glaubt mir.»
