Picked for BEST OF ECHOES 2016 !

"...an exquisitely delicate work..."
The Independent

"Think Gustavo Santaolalla cavorting in a landscape of Ludovico Einaudi while sitting on the Champs-Élysées with the Penguin Cafe Orchestra...In its matrix of mood and emotion, intelligence and sensuousness, Aukai could not be more perfectly pitched."
John Diliberto, Echoes, USA

"...magnificent works and pieces..."
Fractured Air Media

"...Think of this disc as a more consciously melodic backward glance at Brian Eno’s ambient LPs. It’s quiet charms add up to something deceptively substantial."
The Arts Desk, UK
