  1. 7.2 |   Pitchfork

    No Mas can't top those longer mixes, which remain van Buskirk and Langford at their sample-heavy, genre-trotting finest. Dressed up and chopped into discrete chunks, Javelin suddenly bear a close resemblance to the Go! Team-- skilled peddlers of vintage party jams, but with a narrow range

  2. 7.0 |   music OMH

    An oddly compelling listen, in the sense that you're never quite sure whether what you're hearing is amazing or awful. They may be a faceless dance duo but thankfully their music more than makes up for it

  3. 7.0 |   Drowned In Sound

  4. 7.0 |   PopMatters

  5. 7.0 |   Rave Magazine

    Despite all its sparkly, visceral indulgence, No Más serves mostly to remind us that maybe there wasn't that much potential there to begin with
