PLK14 in the media

philip sherburne: “oh. my. god. A-side: one of the most effective uses of a hyperspeed break i've ever heard, and then those keys and bass beneath it sprawl out like soft, spongy grass. can it be summertime already, please, because this is dying to be played on the beach... the B-side cut is in the same vein--deep, dubby, groovy, sad. feels like it's going to fall apart at any second; the live disco drums give it that EDGE. both cuts fantastic, i hope to hear them out all year long. ”

Agnès: “ "Deeper house music achieved with total mastery... John is a deep house jazzman wizard and this record is nothing else then one of my all time favorite." ”

AME: “i became a john daly collector!i love this record..”

de-bug / bleed: “Ein ziemlich guter Grund, dieses Label zu lieben, dürfte auch eine Platte wie diese hier sein. Auf einmal ist Plak das deepeste Houselabel unter der Sonne? Warum nicht. Mächtige Tracks die mit - was bei House immer gut ist - Breaks sehr spartanisch und oldschoolig rocken und einen mit den sanften Pianos und Strings langsam immer süchtiger machen. Zwei Tracks, die definitiv von Anfang an als Klassiker geboren wurden. John Daly aus Irland macht übrigens das Label Feel Music, das man unbedingt checken sollte.”

DJ T: “like the sound of this label, there are always insider tips on it. This time it's the nice & moody b-side.”

Giles Smith (DJ Mag UK/ secret: “REVIEW FROM FORTHCOMING DJ MAG JOHN DALY - Sky Dive EP (Plak) 4* Ireland's John Daly has made some great stuff of late and this ep on Geneva based imprint is Plak is also very strong. "Skydive" is a pleasant deep track with an organic live fee with handclaps and cool percussion. Definitely good warm up material. But its the b-side "Equaliser Broken Juno" that is most appealing with its lo-fi warm rolling groove that just goes on and on. Definitely will appeal to fans of Moodyman and recent work by The Mole with its deep thudding bassline and subtle atmospheric sounds. Nice. ”

Groove Magazin (GER): “ Unser Lieblings-Ire John Daly wohnt jetzt in London. Dort scheint ihm eine steifere Brise ins Gesicht zu blasen als in seiner grünen Heimat. Warum sonst sollte er seinem sonst eher träumerischen Houseansatz einen Frühjahrsputz mit dem Sandstrahler verpassen? Zwei unterschwellig aggressive Tiefseetracks, die dort weiterforschen, wo 20:20 Vision, Herbert oder die Freaks Mitte des letzten Jahrzehnts mal ihre Näschen hineinsteckten. Für Dub Poets unverzichtbar. GJ ”

James Flavour: “nice vibe! i am surprised.....a side is great!”

Michael Ruetten: “class deep house tune on A1 - one of those never ending tunes which just feel good.”

Ripperton / Lazy fat people: “ "Amazing both tracks! This Ep drive me crazy (& rocks the audience): deep,fat & emotional like a big moodymann! Charts n.2 february. " ”
