4 "Meat Number 5 are a mysterious and cagey duo nearly as mysterious as the music they create. Their approach to their tight-as-a-military-school-bed-sheet stage show is all business, as they let the jams speak for themselves.” – Mike Turner / KEXP
5 “Drummer Ricky Ropesack & DJ Big Once: Their sound is a nod to DJ Shadow’s classic album Endtroducing, and it’s nice to see that style embraced in a live setting. Their new EP The Oblivion is a step forward for the duo, and the remix contributions of Maker, Earmint and Maddjazz make for an extremely heady listen.” - Jeff Min/ centerstagechicago.com
