What the media have said...

"Nocturnal Emissions is again proof that we truly do have an abundance of dance music talent in this country. It's a showcase of artists who are great at producing various elements of breaks or drum n bass, with a huge dose of originality and twist. Highly recommended!"
"For a teenager nocturnal omissions were what you dreamed of. This compilation shares common ground with wet dreams in that it's a sure trip into somewhere else. It's wha-icked. Don't buy it to support the local lads and lasses. Buy it because this shit be good. This is a very nice record. At times sweet and lush and others sparse but always with an irresistible rhythm."
(Scene Mag)
"Nocturnal Emissions is the perfect album for anyone wanting to regain a positive headspace after a crappy day at the office."
"This is class and style. The production on each of the 12 tracks is tight, and it moves fluidly from start to finish. With this album being a sign of things to come, we have a lot to look forward to in terms of Aussie dance music in Sydney."
(3D World)
"Dance music is omething of an under rated beast in this country. While its party flavoured attributes are put front and centre, its artistry is often ignored. This collection from indie label Undercover Music goes some way to rectifying the problem. While understated, the tunes are all catchy, and will hopefully see some of the players getting a little more recognition."
"Expect bigger and better things sooner rather than later from the Australian dance scene if releases like this are the benchmark. Another stellar release from Silent Recordings."
(Resident Advisor)
"This isn't your standard dancefloor offering. The prevailing sound is organic. No overproduction. No bullshit. Definitely something differnt to check out.
(9.5/10, Spleenzeen)
"This has rarely left my sound system since I got it over a month ago! The variety of local talent on show here is outstanding. For those after an overview of the Australian dance/electronica/breaks scene, look no further than Nocturnal Emissions. A great document for those currently impacting upon the local scene. A highly entertaining collection that will keep your joint jumping for lotsa time. More please!"
