«What happens when two musician friends from Canada get together to work on a release? Good things happen, that's what. And when both of them are talented artists, the results are potentially even better. Fortunately for Dave Zeal and Daniel Maze (and for test tube, for that matter), the result of this collaborative release is the perfect example of a great combination of musical talent. Dave and Daniel are not new to test tube as they both have released with us before.
'Small Airports EP' is a marvellous journey into pop-ambient by these two canadians, which opens with the soothing drone-like structure of 'Boundary Bay'. But it's on 'Sonari' that we first notice the trademark sounds of the duo: really great keyboards and synths with dreamy hazy ambient. '100 Dollar Lunch' surprises us with a slight, brushed beat, surrounded by more uplifting drones plus what appears to be some field recordings. Great track!
Closing time comes with 'We Shielded Our Eyes', another drone piece much in the line of the opening one, with some added strings which fit greatly into the mix. Awesome work, guys. I hope to see more stuff coming from you two in the future.» - Pedro Leitão

Reviews:

«Retour en duo sur Test Tube pour les deux canadiens Dave Zeal et Daniel Maze, pour un ep tout bonnement somptueux entièrement dédié à la musique ambient atmosphérique, entre drones, field recordings, nappes de synthés et parties de guitares.
Pas très loin de Biosphere, Loscil, Boards of Canada ou encore Pan american, la musique de Dave Zeal + Daniel Maze dégage une très impression de plénitude et plonge l'auditeur dans un voyage aux longs cours, en 5 étapes et autant de titres que composent ce superbe ep. De la haute couture!»
