Fact review Errorsmith ‘I’m Interesting, Cheerful & Sociable’

Chal Ravens: ‘Errorsmith is on an absolute TEAR, fuck! That A+ set of tunes he did with Mark Fell was pretty much my favourite club record of 2015, and now we’ve got a whole new album full of tracks like this to devour. This one is a true demolisher – highlights include the total cognitive breakdown in the middle when all the rave synths go Lemmings and start crashing into each other and falling off cliffs – and Singles Club’s best in show.’ (9)

John Twells: ‘Now you’re fucking talking. Honestly, this isn’t about one track; ‘I’m Interesting, Cheerful & Sociable’ is great, but the whole album – Superlative Fatigue – is a near-flawless psychotropic re-framing of familiar rhythms. It’s very clever, of course, but never takes itself too seriously and, more importantly, never loses sight of the dancefloor. Mesmerizing club perfection.’ (10)

Claire Lobenfeld: ‘This track seems to be fighting against itself, but in a good way. The ecstatic bits contend with the dark backdrop before you are hit with momentary euphoria before the cycle starts again and it works.’ (7)

Scott Wilson: ‘I can’t pretend to be remotely impartial about ‘I’m Interesting, Cheerful & Sociable’ because Errorsmith has made at least three of my favorite tunes of all time, but even still, this is fucking brilliant. Maximal, hands-in-the-air lunacy that doesn’t take itself too seriously and somehow he does it all with four different elements. Less apocalyptic doom techno and more of this in the rave please, God knows we all need it right now.’ (10)
