WAKE UP folks! This is AWESOME!

"If you like Spacetime Continuum's Sea Biscuit you are gonna LOVE this and I am not kidding! Bill Laswell & Jonah Sharp play together like they have been playing for years. Jonah simply astounds me with his ability to create luch soundscapes. This is an ambient record and slightly on the dark side. The synergy between the two is fantastic and I notice that sellers are just giving it away! Subharmonic gets a bad rap because they take chances. HA! Excellent spin!"

"Knowing this to be an obvious ambient album, comprising of only two tracks 30 minutes long each. I pretty much expected soundscapes and no beats or melodies. Howerver, It's Jonah Sharp on this disc, and any fans of spacetime continuum will almost instantly recognize his typical beautifully rhythmic melodic synth lines. This isn't soundscapes - this is ambient techno at it's finest."

1994 - Subharmonic, SD 7006-2 (CD) ****
this is two extremelly long songs featuring excellent ambient synth and ambient sound works then builds to foum a electric dub sound that is similar to peter namlook but has its own flava. i was really suprissed by this, i thought it was going to be all pretty much ambient but oh no theirs tong of rythm in here to make for an extremelly boomin album. the synth work is amazing here lots of it builds its own rythm and structure making it not as much ambient but movable. any fans of this sceen like aphex twin and autechre, mouse on mars, plaid exc... will be amazed how much better and this is than probably ecpected. the 2nd song is entirelly ambient with no real drum beat and no laswell bass"
