We have been asked by people so many times what our music is, and to be honest we never know how to give a complete answer. Here is something written about us by our very loyal fan and friend Andrew Chikavaidze. We hope some day, as we meld music from different times and places together, our music will some day unite and bring people together xx

"Sitting in my rocking chair with a pipe, recollecting the echo of amazing cosmic Surveillance Partyand making attempts to write a few lines about No Illuminati, the headliners, one of the strangest phenomenons I ever seen, and imho the tone setters in today's Sydney alternative music stage.

It is virtually impossible to explain No Illuminati's style, in one two or three words. I remember my very first associations were "funkcore" and "jazz hop" when I saw them live :D It is incredible how band mixes dance music and jazz standards with rhythm-and-blues, hard rock, trip hop, "Nu-blues" and "tech-funk" and the result sounds like none of those.

It's just hard to believe how the band managed to mix contradictory things and got the "unity of opposites".In fact No Illuminati promoted the idea of "fusion" to the next level, made it like a chemical reaction, where you can recognise the components but the result is completely new substance with it's own taste and groove. Add to this otherwordly and occult appearance, word plays in lyrics which could have make Lennon envy, and you'll get some idea of what No Illuminati is. It seems like No Illuminati is just one step of creating a new genre. And yes, the band does have a potential to change the order of the music world some day, and it seems they already started ;)
