Music for Modular Synthesizer

“Gorgeous intricacy and sweeping scale”- Spin Magazine

"Teenages is a masterclass in the almost forgotten art of playing synthesisers for their own sake." - The Guardian

“The spontaneous, jammed, live feel oozes out of every pour of the six tracks..” -Electronic Sound Magazine

"From the throbbing, alien hum of ‘Artilect’ to the naive Radiophonic-esque bleeping melody of ‘Palace Workers’, its expertly-cultivated moods will captivate current fans and win over new ones."- 9/10 DJ Mag

"Unlike many contemporary modular synth releases, Teenages has arrived at an original sound, combining 20th Century experimental composition with 21st Century notions of artificial intelligence." - The Quietus

“This kind of modular synth work isn’t exactly an underpopulated field, but Teenages offers plenty to commend it. The balance of sun blinded textures and rough-housing tactility is spot on.” - 8/10 Uncut Magazine

"This is no ordinary release of electronic music. It is a fully realized work of detailed composition, where each track contributes to an arc of music that displays theme and narrative" - 8/10 Exclaim Magazine
