Press & reviews

– “The EP shows that taking your time before releasing one’s productions can pay off, as there’s a maturity to the synthesis of influences on display here. Side A focuses on the “dark, strong and hypnotic”, starting with the spacey Begin Transmission, whose deep low-end and discordant bleeps bring to mind Terrence Dixon or 90s Jeff Mills, yet with a bouncing groove that is unexpectedly fun, leaving a more multifaceted impression than the typical track with these Detroit touchstones. Chihirotraktor begins with a martial, EBM-inspired rhythm which morphs completely over the duration of the track, organically progressing between different rhythmic ideas driven by stop-start percussion..

– “Hinter dem eher lustig anmutenden Titel und Labelnamen „Kolibri Space Shuttle“ des aus Korsika stammenden Produzenten PETRU verbirgt sich in Wahrheit ein hypnotisierender Techno-Spacetrip voller außergewöhnlicher Atmosphären und Emotionen. Während PETRU die A-Side seiner Debüt-EP besonders düster, kräftig und hypnotisch gestaltet hat, hat er für die konträre B-Side einen weitaus melodischeren und tiefergreifenden Ansatz gewählt, der in einer Coverversion des Âme-Hits „Rej“ gipfelt. A true journey. 9/10” – Printed press

– “PETRU – der Meister der Live-Techno-Performance im XXL-Interview. Mit seiner “Kolibri Space Shuttle”-EP serviert uns der auf Korsika geborene DJ und Live-Produzent PETRU einen hypnotisierenden Techno-Spacetrip voller außergewöhnlicher Atmosphären und Emotionen.” – Online

FazeMag

– “El artista y productor de techno corso PETRU es un artista creativo, carismático y enérgico en directo. Desde el transbordador espacial Kolibri, recorre las constelaciones y observa las maravillas que traduce en experiencias sonoras. Su pasión por contar historias le lleva a experimentar con varios subgéneros del techno desarrollados a través de las series NSTNKT, Kolibri, Tribute y SNDSKP. La música de PETRU oscila entre ritmos hipnóticos y oscuros, viajes melódicos y hermosos, desde impactantes rodillos techno hasta paisajes sonoros experimentales, rindiendo ocasionalmente homenaje a sus principales fuentes de inspiración.”

Vicious Magazine

– “Prepare yourself for a quality techno injection. The EP is a wild ride from the full-on hypnotizing stomper of ‘Begin Transmission‘ to the floating bliss of ‘Retro Futura Muse‘. While side ‘A’ lays down two peak time, dark room monsters, side ‘B’ has a lighter melodic edge while still laying down some solid beats. Excellent production with all elements combining effortlessly to create wonderful complex layers of depth. Petru manages to finely balance the compositions, so the sounds entwined around the driving percussion lift the arrangements into the next orbit. A voyage through the alluring darkness into an ambient dawn..”

Back Seat Mafia

– “Al margen de los ritmos crudos e hipnóticos, lo que ofrece el EP de Kolibri Space Shuttle es una atmósfera extraordinaria, un diseño de sonido soberbio y unos grooves muy marcados a lo largo de 5 viajes únicos. El lado A es oscuro, fuerte e hipnótico, mientras que el lado B es impulsado, melódico y a vezes emocional, y presenta una versión del increíble tema “Rej”.”

Coocuyo Magazine – Electronic Music Magazine of Cuba
