- Lapalux: When You’re Gone
"Lapalux goes further than testing the limits of his laptop"
- Paper Tiger: Illuminated EP
The EP shows, if proof was needed, that the best is just around the corner.
- Thundercat: The Golden Age of Apocalypse
Thundercat is big thoughts condensed into deliberate concepts, executed with full commitment
- Flying Lotus: Pattern + Grid World
"The incorporation of analogue sounds to the digital maze that was Cosmogramma is largely gone, but so are the more conventional beat structures of Los Angeles."
- Teebs: Ardour
Where Lorn’s debut was dense and industrially knocking electronic music, Ardour is a spacious, light and—above all—blank canvas, on which Teebs has had a field day.
- Lorn: Nothing Else
"Less metaphysical than FlyLo’s Cosmogramma, Lorn’s debut album Nothing Else is conceptually bound to the calamitous theme of armed conflict."
- Daedelus: Righteous Fists of Harmony
"The rebellion ends in some kind of sad oblivion, oddly also blissful, in ’Fin de Siècle’."
