DAVID KRISTIAN -
SWEET BITS
(CD-Mono15)
(Distributed by Fusion3) 2005

Sweet Bits is an excellent follow-up to the critically acclaimed Sawdust Sinedust Squaredust (1999) and to the material David has licensed to Toronto’s Suction Records for their Snow Robots compilations. Selected by David Kristian and DJ Mini, the 13 tracks on the album contain just the right blend of skittering rhythms, subsonic basses, and heartwarming melodies to make you forget all your troubles.
