In advance of the forthcoming new studio album from Amp. Q Factors (a mixtape) is a taste of what has gone before and what is still to come.

Q factors opens with the sonic trip beat chaos engine that is "Drowning Mind" mixed by Marc Challans.

"Hownow" calms things down with an atmospheric trip hop vibe, mix by Challans/Amp Studio.

"Lost Love Cries", a song by Karine Charff, given an electronica twist by Chris Smith under the name of Blaubac.

Guitar riff grooves return with "Loveflower" given a second airing in this collection in re-mastered form, mix by Amp Studio.

Donald Ross Skinner supplies the mix of "Just Get it", an edgy stand off with guitar washes and a lonesome harmonica haunted by Karine's vocals.

"D'espoir de Mourir" - low-fi French minimal techno in a gothic sea, mix by former Amp cohort Olivier Gauthier.

"Waiting Room Blues" is a track which escaped inclusion US' album, and has found a home here, a slice of quirky French techno blues.

"Push n Hold" mix by Amp Studio. Followed by the ambient electronica of "When & Where", mix by Yellow6.

Concluding in the romantic tradition "Ombres sur la Lune" floats in, a slice of spacey ambience mixed by French act Ladder to Royale, Karine's haunting vocals drifting us out.
