"Australia has been a little slow to catch on to the whole post-dubstep thing, with garage inspired bass with a broken beat yet to truly catch on in the Southern Hemisphere. However, with the release of Sydney artist Amberscape, it looks as if that may be changing. Although comparisons with Burial are likely to come thick and fast, mainly due to the EP's rich atmospherics and haunted vocals, Sepalcure might be a more useful reference point: "Yuki-onna", with its sun-drenched chords and bone dry snares, is a prime example. Elsewhere, "Howiloathe" stands out with its deep house-influenced bass and 2-step rhythm, while "Kino" combines pressure cooker atmospherics with mournful vocals and "Maerd" rounds off a fine EP with a shimmering exercise in tension with all the production mastery of his North American peers. Recommended." - review by Juno
