GENERAL NICE THINGS PEOPLE HAVE SAID ABOUT BUTTRESS BEFORE:
“Words like "mashup" and "remix" don't really do justice to Buttress O'Kneel's method - Top 40 pop crap gets sliced, diced, and tossed into a dizzying, exciting hardcore electro stew. Compared to other djs who timidly drop a Vanilla Ice acapella over a Chemical Bros intro just to move a dance floor, O'Kneel shreds copyrights with a blood-curdling vehemence. Smash the state!”
- Music 4 Maniacs
"It's a trip down the radio frequency spectrum. Random, slippery and fun mix of a multitude of sources and elements."
- Triple J
"It's great! And it's all over the place. One track is a heavily cut-up political speech, another is a kind of glitch-pop. Sometimes we're in mashup territory and then all of a sudden it's a collage of startup sounds appropriated from the artist's personal computer. Hard to pin down, but most often compelling."

"media manipulator extraordinaire, Buttress O’Kneel surfs the flux between truth and information"
