    hej! is one of PC Music's most well-rounded records yet.

    The London based producer integrates his maternal Polish roots in the spotty, fragmented and incidental way that only a truly intercultural artist can. [Sep 2018, p.49]

    Hej! marks an evolution for felicita and, by extension, PC Music. It is a big twist away from tongue in cheek nature for which they are at times dismissed.

    hej! articulates the changing meaning of tradition within the cultural mosaic; most importantly, Dvorak demonstrates harmony through hybridity, asserting a necessary post-Brexit statement.

    It is a hodgepodge of tracks, seemingly made with little thought to how they will all sound in sequence, and because of this it doesn’t have much more consistency than an eclectic music collection on shuffle. Which is a shame, because there are good ideas here.

    However, palpable in the sound of hej! is the plastic production that in most PC Music releases obscures what severs real from virtual, superficial from sincere, instead exposing that the uncanny excess of the latter grounds the former’s dominion in our minds.

    By turns beguiling and unnerving, at times it feels like an exercise in disorientation. [Sep 2018, p.113]

    "hej!" é uma miscelânea de faixas, aparentemente produzidas sem pensar em como todas elas soariam em sequência. Falta alguma consciência,"hej!" é uma miscelânea de faixas, aparentemente produzidas sem pensar em como todas elas soariam em sequência. Falta alguma consciência, solidez e coesão ao álbum, o que é uma pena, porque há boas ideias nesta produção do produtor londrino. Expand
