"Best live music i heard in a long long time!~ and the visual just made it a trip into dreamy landscapes "

Stas Kravets - Artist

"One of the finest debuts this year!"

“The Use given 85% in National Print Magazine in France!”

"Overall an entertaining debut catering to the audience of labels such as ANT-ZEN, WARP RECORDS”

“This is a pure dose of creativity and yet the songs are surprisingly accessible and friendly sounding. If you think all electronic music is cold and distant, What's The Use? may introduce you to a new world where electronics can be your friend.”

““I’m the fourth dimensional deep space phenomenon,” lord Black Saturn assures us. Ten lords-a-leaping remix the declaration in rotation. The core is hot; the surface is cool. Post-cracked ice is smudged down the side of a reflective aluminum can spinning on a Lazy Susan in time with the drum doctor as tiny bubbles pop out the top, the sprinkler.”

"As someone who loves the sounds of The Use (Aka Michael Durek) I couldn't have been more delighted to witness his song synched to the cutting of cuticles and the movement of an Euler's Disk-- a toy specifically designed for the purpose of studying the physics of spinning."

"Electronic artist Michael Durek has brought a breath of life into the music world. He’s created amazing glitch music, with great composition and passion. "

“Speaking for myself, I was seduced by the rather IDM-approach of Black Saturn featuring a rapper on vocals and The Use feat. Rachel Mason.”

“You’ll fall in love with the most precious and melodic currents that radiate the remarkable “Bird Song” by The Use feat. Rachel Mason” [translated]”
