«Polish musician Adrian Kowalczewski returns a short while after his previous EP with a solid short album called 'Select (Parts 1 + 2)'. The title reveals a bit of what's going on here: Adrian selected several kind of tracks, according to different moods, and the two parts the album title mentions were originally meant to be released as two different releases. Part 1 is the ambient side, referred to as the 'static' side: dub-inspired idm, solid and spatial d 'n' b beats ('c'), ambient pads and drones, and even some winks at dubstep ('Select c'). In Part 2 we have the 'groovy side', which includes an outtake from the previous release ('Short Guitar Song Part 2') along with two new tracks, including one attempt at an 8bit IDM style classic ('a').

If not actually full-blown consistent - or coherent - as a conceptual release should be, 'Select' works nicely because it is a great example of Ad.R's genuine talent at creating different moods extremely successfully. Here we have a bunch of really great tracks to enjoy, to dance or just to contemplate, that go very well together.» - Pedro Leitão
