„...electronically tinged Jazz, abstract, atmospheric, dreamlike, melancholic. Canvas convinces with their calm and slowness. (…) A musical vision that stands at the same level as Tortoise, Peace Orchestra, Carl Craig or the output of Warp.

In one word: beautiful !” TRAX Magazine, (August 2003)

“…Buona Modulazione is a damn great album showing the genre of electronica in a whole new light. One of the most surprising new labels of the moment.”

DE:BUG (October 2003)
