The release has had some really positive reviews by online magazines Pumped Audio, Deep South Audio and MagazineSixty. To quote some parts of the reviews:

Pumped Audio: “Stockings & Champagne will set you in the middle of a sweaty crowd at some secret underground warehouse at 2am in the early hours of Sunday morning. Stockings & Champagne is that sign that this party has just geared up to kick off!”

Deep South Audio: “This release comes straight from deep in the underground. Techno styles beats that don’t stop on the original, Haunting vocal making you move towards the speaker like a spider that’s spun a seductive trap.”

MagazineSixty: “Stockings and Champagne has that same vibe that you used to get on Tribal America with fierce drums, vocals and techy stabs all competing for your undivided attention. Play after dark. Casma’s Alternative remix placing its juicy Techno bassline alongside a spacey arrangement that echoes Dub all the way. Next, is Brisboys version which has funky, deep percussion over bouncy rhythms and undulating keys to complement the vocal lines.”
