August Engkilde Reviews:

“…Engkilde had some great co-producers and talent (EPO is actually the name of the music collective founded by Engkilde) who all step up to the plate and bring a polished, cohesive sound that only a good ensemble could produce.”
(Raf Katigbak) Montreal Mirror (Reviewing: Electronic Panorama Orchestra, EPO ~scape)

“…don’t waste your money on dropping acid, just buy this instead.”
(Echoes June 2000) (Reviewing: August Engkilde -Police Beat Box, Cheap/033)

“…Mensch! Da steht was von einem Panorama-Orchester (EPO) auf der Platte und ich denke als erstes an Fleischmann- oder Schnauss-Teppiche. Aber nichts dergleichen, sondern poppiger Jazz mit ein bisschen HipHop und Dub, Latin, Funk und immer wieder Elektro… Man findet immer wieder Neues und immer mehr bei jedem Hören. Auch die vereinzelten Instrumentalstücke heften sich ins Hirn.
