Review on Boomkat:

Enter Roman Hiele with his debut album of aerated acid house and flighty footwork. We're used to hearing producers attempt one style or the other, but not typically on the same record, yet Belgian producer Hiele pulls it off with panache. His high-velocity tracks recall Teklife's Rashad and Spinn or their Planet Mu mate, µ-Ziq's recent forays into the area; a mixture of disjointed, layered juke rhythm and thermal boogie magic, at its best on the gauzy 'Fake Fiestagirl' or the well-oiled cyber-sex vibes of 'Glow'. But that's only half the matter, whilst 'F33L' does quasi speed lushness like no other, and his deep acid house/boogie joints, 'S612808' and 'Return To See' rewire those percolating hi-hats, grubbing acid lines and exotic pads at a more classic Chi-town tempo.

The release party was on the 31st of May 2013 at Scheldapen, Antwerp.
