"'Proprioception' initially focuses on his acoustic improvisations, studio recordings with a startlingly vivid and intimate sound, so near that one feels like an occupant of the clarinet itself. When he adds amplification to the clarinet he presses it into the sonic territory of an electric guitar." — The New York City Jazz Record

"Not only London's, but probably the UK's finest exponent of free, extended technique improv on clarinet is also a gripping solo performer, as he proves here." — Jazzwise

"The distance traveled from the open, acoustic playing on “Vestibular” to the fearsome experimentation of “Chasm” is striking, and the album plays best as a whole, allowing listeners to experience the full range, from soaring to searing." — The Free Jazz Collective (David Menestres' Top 10 Albums of 2017)
