"The 9/11 attacks on the American World Trade Center in 2001, inside job or not, can be considered a pivotal moment in contemporary hystory. Even at the time, the event - whether state-sponsored terrorism, independent terrorism, or state-sponsored terrorism disguised as independent terrorism - seemed globally significant, and with the benefits of hindsight, appear perhaps even moreso. Buttress O'Kneel's audiodocumentary 'Afraid of Enduring Freedom' was created as it happened, in the two months directly following the aeroplanic impact/controlled demolition/illuminati pantomime/missile attack upon the Twin Towers, and so captures the violence, paranoia, and fear of the epoch with media-saturated precision. Reminisce at will."

“Words like "mashup" and "remix" don't really do justice to Buttress O'Kneel's method - Top 40 pop crap gets sliced, diced, and tossed into a dizzying, exciting hardcore electro stew. Compared to other djs who timidly drop a Vanilla Ice acapella over a Chemical Bros intro just to move a dance floor, O'Kneel shreds copyrights with a blood-curdling vehemence. Smash the state!”
