CommoNasm on Indecentxposure.com (Canada)

"TenDJiz (a.k.a. Tengiz) is incredible...The sound is a complete 180 from the electronic beats we’ve been hearing... on everything. His remixes add to the feel of the song, so instead of just a shot of adrenaline you get a whole lot of heart. It's refreshing, and you won't be able to stop bobbing your head to it. Not only have the tracks introduced me to Russian Jazz and Soul, they re-introduced me to Hip Hop and brought with it a wave of nostalgia."
