"Rich Oddie has been creating an atmospheric mix of precise techno, with rawer industrial and dub elements since the early ‘90s, working often under the name Orphx with Christina Sealey. ‘Against Your Will’ continues very much along the same lines, with four tracks of rolling technoid landscapes which always seem on the verge of spilling over into machine noise but are nonetheless kept in check and reigned onto Oddie’s unceasing 4/4 throb. This is functioning dance music which takes it cues from a wider palette than most, creating an expansive sound not unlike ‘Incunabula’-era Autechre." -

"Rich Oddie of Orphx delivers a very solid EP of dubby electro and submerged techno to the rejuvenated Surface LTD. It's his second EP for the label since launching it like the nuclear ice-sub that emblazons this release. The title track is regimented by disgruntled sonar blips and fizzing snare hits, while "Bloodstream" finds that happy medium between the pounding grooves of Jeff Mills and Regis. "Undercurrent" is twanging, Aphex-twin like electro, while "Quintessence" - an EP highlight - is one for lovers of aqueous and power dub techno" - Juno

"The tracks on offer here have a barely restrained power, the production is clean and polished but the sense of underlying strength is palpable. The grooves are well dancefloor friendly but contain a purveying sense of brooding, something sinister hidden between the frequencies and within the rhythms – something inherently foreboding and alien. Full marks to both Surface for always sticking to its guns and to Rich Oddie for delivering this sterling slice of bitter-sweet dystopia to exactly the right label." - Electric Underground
