AllMusic Review by

Gabor Deutsch had already made strange little trinkets for labels like Juice and Compost by the time Mole Listening Pearls found him, and Contrast, his full-length debut, proved that the inevitable discovery was a fortunate one. Unlike much of Mole's roster, Deutsch was confident with a large variety of styles. One moment he could be steeped in painstakingly nostalgic trip-hop and a kind of Trio disco whimsy, the next moment lush Groove Armada low beats filtered through logical IDM 2-step. It didn't always fit together but, with such a sweet and difficult arsenal of sounds, that was part of its appeal.
