Another exciting compilation from those wonderful aural pioneers of IDMf, This is Good Tea rolls through a compelling array of carefully sculpted, perfectly crafted masterpieces. Often tied together by glitched beats, unique rhythms, haunting echoes and beautiful melodies, the netlabel again proves it can offer a release that boasts both variation and coherency, no song out of place despite the diversity of the palette.
One thing that seems to run across all the songs on this compilation is the dreamlike nature of them. In terms of composition, sound design and on a whole a brilliant example of quality musicianship this whole album evokes all sorts of emotion and at times conjures up the most interesting of imagery in the listener’s mind.
Prepare yourself for a treat. This really is exceptionally good tea.
Really EXCELLENT tea

Sweetness. All downloaded and copied to my trusty MP3 player. Looking forward to listening to this. I've been whirling around various forums and places I hang out to put out the word too. I'll do more during Monday properly.
Cheers for all the hard work Ben
I know I should post my own stuff here but I prefer to link you goodness:
IDMf: Outside of porn, best cunts on the internet.
I am humbled by how good the tracks are on here, especially relative to my own contribution. Great stuff, everyone. It's not tomorrow yet where I am, so I was a little surprised to see the announcement. Off to spam the world...
im amazed at how much better the glitchy tracks sound now they've been mastered... the panning and shit sounds great! it has really shown me that maybe i should do something... anything to mix my tracks properly lol
i told benwaa he might have trouble with mine... did you?
well thanks to everyone, the artwork is killer, as was the video and the work put in by benwaa was massive to say he doesnt have to do shit like this
also i think there were a few anonymous people that helped promote it before it was released?
anyway why is no one more bothered about this? maybe im biased :S
