"Oh Shit! Bastard Jazz keeps filling the void with this mind melting seven inch from Canadians Chronic Sonata. Everyday is everything I wanted it to be and more. If you love dub, buy this record. If you love downtempo, buy this record. If you love Brooklyn, buy this record! This track is bass heavy and sparse in all the right places, with the most tasteful placement of vocal snippets since Osbourne Ruddock was runnin tings. The haters will hate me for saying that, but how can I not be enthusiastic when Bastard Jazz keeps raising their own bar and pushing the surrounding music scene to bring something better for the open-minded dancefloors/living rooms. Never content to rest on the laurels of one solid side, they enlist Frenchman Grant Phabao for the always on point Bastard Jazz remix. More than overhauling the original, I imagine Grant simply introduced Chronic Sonata to Mad Professor in a sauna at a Swiss resort. They then described what they were feeling about the current state of the world and Phabao laid it down on a fat piece of tape. Just to put it over the top, check out the label design and see how things should be done. I like it. BJ, put ya lighters up!"

[Fact Magazine issue 12 (UK)]
"The reliable Bastard Jazz imprint throw up a limited release on seven-inch in the shape of a bastardised dub/downtempo child, which carries the mannerisms of one King Jammy at his peak. It's got a tough roots edginess compounded by well placed vocal snippets, lump hammer bass and plenty of echo, delay and reverb. A solid release that'd sound as at home on your hi-fi as on a 10k rig, benefiting from a nice, loud pressing."

"Hot BASTARD JAZZ 7" from CHRONIC SONATA. "EVERYDAY" explores rough and rugged dub/downtempo with live drums, a healthy heap of delay, swirling guitar and a deep bassline. On the flip GRANT PHABAO of TIMEC builds "EVERYDAY" in to a BASIC CHANNEL/RHYTHM & SOUND style dub assault. Wicked."
