"Fusing together hip-hop beats with fluid synth lines, Filthy Four Track Machine I + II, doesn’t exactly sound like the kind of self-indulgence of a man lost in his basement studio, but on one level that is exactly what springs to mind when thinking about the meticulous creation of these melodic experiments."
"The carefully crafted atmosphere of bombastic beats and alluring instrumentals set the stage for a feeling of eeriness and expectation; as if just around the corner awaits another surprise."
-The Grey Estates
