“The duo comprised of Jamie Paton and Nigel Of Bermondsey have almost made a career out of being underrated by the masses, although dancefloor cognoscenti such as Erol Alkan, Tim Sweeney, Andy Blake and Bill Brewster are all confirmed admirers.

 

The 12-track set – originally slated for release in summer 2011 – showcases the full breadth of the Cage & Aviary sound, from wide eyed synth nerd-outs (“Giorgio Carpenter (Director’s Cut)”), low slung disco chuggers (“In Todd We Trust”) percussive jaunts (“Colourless Plastic”) and sweat-drenched house (“Lean On Me”, which features the vocals of Denise Johnson), all of which are conducted with a refreshingly cheeky sense of humour..”

“Those with an intrest in Electronica music, will be excited to know that an amazing duo, Cage & Aviary are about to break into the industry with their debut album, Migration, which will be available from 23rd January 2012.

 

The tracks on this album are addictive in their own way, as each track offers a unique sound and experience. Sometimes debut albums can be such a dissapointment, with each song sounding too much the same, but this is definately not the case with this album. There is plenty of variety on offer with Migration, thus showing that Cage & Aviary are extremely capable of pushing themselves to the limit.

This album is not for the faint hearted, its definitely one however of true unadultared, mature Electronic music. If this is only the debut album, my god Cage and Aviary have already raised the standards..”

“It’s far too eclectic and intricate for any old pigeon hole or genre tag, zooming mercurially (and composedly) between future funk, ambient cinemascape, R&B shakedown, electronic jam and embryonic house. But, crucially, accessibility and feeling are there, as much as the evident quality and structure. Cage & Aviary are building a real name for themselves and their reputation should continue to fly chirpily high over the coming months.”

Blues & Soul

-

“It’s a debut album seeping with references to that golden era of the late ‘80s when disco/rock/funk/punk all collided to create the intoxicating mutant form of dancefloor post-punk, but this duo buff them up with similar craftmanship to Lindstrom or Glass Candy, delivering slick 21st-century renditions of those halcyon good times.”

“Now I’m not going to give this a full track by track as I hate spoiling the surprise for people, but let me tell you this is a collection worth purchasing. Man its a polished little piece of modern electronica And it keeps going, Elements of Royksopp and Daftpunk later on and every track as well crafted as the last.

I think if anything going on the strength of what I’ve heard I find myself wondering about their next release, which in my mind is a very good sign.”
