8/10 Laurie Staff review, 09 February 2017
VHS junkie and anime appropriator R23X is another member of the Dream Catalogue post-vapor-cyber-blah crew who strings together beat-y miniatures into slightly surreal electronic albums made from RPG samples. This is their first vinyl release, after the usual mp3 and cassette beginnings now making it to a proper format.
Those fans of the ‘future’-y side of hip-hop or trap grooves should gravitate towards this one naturally - think Flying Lotus, My Panda Shall Fly (and most of Project Mooncircle), Daisuke Tanabe etc etc. Sharp, complex chopping of samples are overlaid on top of some damn chill drum lines, delicately spiced with the occasional white noise burst or bleep from a game character/menu. Maybe even fans of Daedelus will like this. Anyway, it’s like a very chill beat tape that’s the latest in an excellent wax pressing spree from Dream Catalogue.
