".. the heaviest original dub sounds on the planet!.. Twilight Circus is the top sound. ." - XLR8R

“Moore’s technique remains superior to anyone working in dub today.” – Exclaim!
"Charm, authenticity...wit and proficiency...utterly brilliant," – The Wire
"One of the most creative and original Dub wizards in the world!” - Reggae Vibes
"Moore’s take on dub is a radical application of the ideology of dub pioneers like King Tubby, Lee Perry, and Augustus Pablo. His bass lines weigh tons, his atmospheres are deep, and his arrangements are kaleidoscopic while seeming inconspicuous: he “plays” the sound studio".. - DJ Sep - Dubmission SF
