EDGE Radio: Album of the Week

3D Magazine:
“Even a cursory listen to Circuit Breaker Vol 1 will fill you with faith and pride in the Australian music scene. The crew from Lightsounds decided it was high time to draw some of those wicked tracks out of the computers of local producers and bands and bring them into the limelight. The result is an extremely impressive collection of hip hop, breaks and electro that will quite frankly knock your socks off.‰ 7/10.

BRAG Magazine:

“Listen up wannabe producers- the Circuit Breaker series is your chance to be heard. This homegrown compilation from Lightsounds aims to get your music out of your bedroom. Volume 1 has a buffet of electronic splendour ranging from Hip Hop to Breaks and Electro. And despite the amateur status of these artists, the quality at hand is anything but.” **** 4 Stars

RAVE Magazine:
“This CD, compiled following a nationwide call-out for new electronic music, offers a strikingly diverse but surprisingly cohesive sampling of emerging Australian hip hop and electronic talent. Highlights are numerous. All in all, a compilation that’s both worthy and worth your time.”
