What the media have to say...
'Watch The One':
"Watch the One swings wildly between drum n' bass, soul, dub and disco... but does it with style and substance."
"This album is not only clever in its execution of cheek, the quality of music is sexy and beautiful - the way soulful funk should be. Well done on taking such a risk without losing sight of the music."

"Those Sydney Tracky Dax boys are off again with their super-smooth brand of tounge-in-cheek super-funk. Smart and funny - and eminently danceable."
(The Weekend Australian)
"An album that both shows musical intelligence and amazing sound quality, being recorded in their own home studio, showcasing a stripped back line up and new direction."
"Very cool indeed"
"Funky-arsed larrikins Tracky Dax may have downsized for the new album 'Watch the One', but in doing so they also dig deeper into the crevice where political shit lurks. No longer 'crimes of fashion', it's new transgressions getting a fingering now. Still having fun, TD blow some fresh musical rasberries."
"The rich depth of this first single 'Lewinski' will surely make it a radio favourite."
"Tracky Dax have grown, tightening their sound. 'Watch the One' is a diverse album of peverse beats with a classy edge."
"The perfect ingredient to accompany acid punch in getting the party started right!"
"With their insightful writing, musical experimentation and electronic additions, Tracky Dax have produced a gem of an album that will reward multiple listenings."
'Crimes of Fashion':
"The production is superb, the sense of humour acute. Functional and mechanically funky, it does what it is supposed to do. Brilliant!"
"There is no doubt that this is an infectious recording with loads og boogie laden fun."
"Sophisticated without being pompous, Tracky Dax is set to soar."
"There's a touch of lounge combined with a deep funk feel, sprayed with a lot of carefree vibes and great lyrics."
"This Sydney trio is shifty, snappy and funky, and the sound is crisp and digital, but with plenty of swing in the beats and humour in the vocals."
"How absolutely refreshing."
(Dylan Lewis, host of Pepsi Live)
"Smart and quirky low-cal dance music."
(4 Star Review, Ralph Magazine)
"It's a good sign for the state of local funk, Tracky Dax have found the sound of Australian soul."
"Displaying precocity and self-knowledge, Tracky Dax bravely fuse clever lyrical irreverence with cool and catchy funk grooves. A perfect mood-lifter."
(4 star review, SMH)
"Tongue-in-cheek, quite brilliant."
"So much dance music seems deviod of life. Tracky Dax however, are not like that at all."
"Anyone who's ever been to the love seat parties will attest to the mighty grandeur of Tracky Dax. Theirs are true dope beats driving everyone in attendance into a frenzy of disco transmission. This is the bona fide funk for the finest people. My clothes are off - it's too hot in here! I crown you, all three of you - "ELVIS!" Buy this now! Buy it for your momma and your sista and your bros and your flatties ... so good. How do they do it? Can we play it again?."

"Damn clever, and I like the fact the very people it is extracting the piss from will probably champion it. The remixes will fill dancefloors of various kinds. Very funky, Mumma, as they say."
"DJ promises to have even the most conservative of wallflowers busting killer moves. Cruisy electro-pop with a retro edge that takes Jamiroquai on a run for his money, DJ is a testament not only to the band's crafty musical arrangements but to their subtle humour which pervade the album. Already receiving JJJ airplay and with an accompanying video now at television, DJ is set to explode when the Dax hit stages in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane over the coming months."
