Weldroid :: EXPTIME EP (Section 27)

EXPTIME revolves around therapeutic electronics to both calm and clutter the senses and it achieves just that. “The Unterman” glows as if culled from a missing Plaid extract—crunchy beatwork, skittery melodic tones, rhythmic chimes looped in an electrical soup.

Sixty Drops :: Turquoise (Self-Released)

A breath of fresh air, an ode to docile glitch, brisk clicks, and wandering trails, Turquoise is solemn, disparaging, and filled with electrical noodles meant to be entangled in its downtempo sheen.

Igloo Magazine :: Best of 2016

Room Of Wires :: Used As A Runner EP (Section 27)
