Read what Simon Reynolds wrote for Spin Magazine "Various Artists

Lily of the Valley (2000) [Compilation]

More IDM--what the fuck's happened to me? (Must be something to do with hardly making it out to clubs anymore--kiddies play time at 7-AM makes dancing 'til the crack of dawn a costly choice--so home-oriented stuff starts to make more sense). The missing link between 2 Live Crew and Autechre, booty and brain, Miami-bassed (forgive me folks!) Schematic showcase their roster's flair for rhythmic convolution, texturological research, and low-end boom. Tracks like Takeshi Muto's "Rotea" offer a captivatingly contradictory texture-blend of succulent and crisp, supple and fractured. Phoenecia's "Yamuna" makes me think of that old sci-fi scenario, a glistening and refractory crystal-world where life emerged based around silicon rather than carbon. And Muto's closing "Muto Love" is like courtly love for a future neo-feudal society: the sighs and suppressed sobs of a bummed-out bot besotted with the belle dame sans merci, his all-too-human but heartless mistress."
