Here is a review of Q factors in Italian from Music Map
A rough translation into English reads:
Awaiting the release of their next album, the AMP project gives the prints an extremely varied and rather complex electronic mixtape where you can feel the many influences of your style and where you can appreciate the versatility that drives the disc to unusual genres, from shades very personal and experimental: it never goes out in the "already heard". The ten content tracks are mixed in very different garments and the result is a fun and enjoyable puzzle.
The "Q Factors" mixtape (just released for AMPbase) opens with a psychedelic ride from the undead beat, "Drowning Mind", and to sacred monsters DJ Shadow and Aphex Twin inserts minimalist elements approachable to Autechre. Laurie Spiegel's interstellar drifts are perceptible in "Just Get It", while Wagon Christ is traceable to the beautiful and strange "Loveflower". There are also moments of less energetic and moving: the sweet waves of "Ombres sur la Lune", a romantic and nostalgic ending, seem to accompany an expedition outside the Solar System, and the refinement with which each sound is cured is superb and surprising. Accurate and refined is also the ability of AMP to move towards more relaxed and relaxed moods, such as in the surrealistic and joyous "Hownow", perfect track of the opening song and clever bridge between it and the next "Lost Love Cries", almost pinkfloydiana in the approach, but totally related to "made in '00s" experiences.
There are so many influences, crosses and visions. The mixtape makes you jump and thrill from so many points of view: one of these is also the ability to cross other worlds. In addition to the interstellar journeys already mentioned, there is the encounter with French low-fi, so evident in "D'Espoir de Mourir", slow, disturbing, almost obscuring when a Gothic voice comes from the outbreak. Everything is temporary and can change in the next minute: "Waiting Room Blues," which follows, is a meeting this time with French techno, whose acidic and elegant shorts permeate the song. It follows "Push 'n' Hold", which gives a sense of eternal and subtle peace, a call to order and to the hope of new age influences. Before the beautiful closing of "Ombres sur la Lune" there is time for an ambient piece, "When & Where", which further demonstrates how AMP is a versatile and fruitful project. For this reason, the mixtape is largely successful. (Samuele Conficoni)
