Pedro EP
Pedro

What they said about Pedro

'Don't know much about Pedro, but this six-track EP is a find. Extended DJ Shadow-style workouts … which sound like the incidental music to unmade 70s kids TV programmes'
- NME

'Touched by melancholia Pedro blends cottage electronics with gentle breaks to produce six quite lovely tracks that though simple, should be heard by post-rockers and beat connoisseurs alike.'
- Jockey Slut

'Apologies in advance for the grandiose statement. But this is music full of human spirit, made for the soul. Thankyou melodic. 5/5'
- DJ (Leftfield single of the fortnight)

'A six track EP that reaches parts other records wouldn't even dare try. Drop the needle and watch time stop. Enough to shame lo-fi non-believers into preaching door to door.'
- Echoes (single of the week)

'Like DJ Shadow mixing John Coltrane at 3.00am.'
- BBM

'Pedro strikes a gorgeous chord with delicate folk lattice flickers glimpsed through the grain of a crackly four-track'
- Sleaze Nation

'Perfect for those 'Condor' moments'
- Straight No Chaser

'Pedro deals in exquisite, almost bluegrass acoustic pickings, like a traumatised Tortoise with Steve Reich tendencies. Irresistable. 4/5'
- Muzik

'Pedro mixes music workshop simplicity with cut ups and beats beneath it … and gradually walks hand in hand towards the beach at sunset with DJ Shadow helping out a more pastoral Felt Nearby. The stuff of dreams,…'
- Music 365 (single of the week)

'Broken amp melodies and rusty valves flicker out pure gold in flashes'
- What's On UK

'Joy. A new label and a new artist and a real sense of wonder to this EP that sounds like an unearthed gem from time ago.'
- Wax (Abstract Single Of The Month)
