Press :
"Du funk hybride avec une bonne grosse dose d'auto-tune dedans? Hum... L'album, en preparation lui aussi, accueillera Money Mark, ex-clavier des Beastie Boys, parmi ses invités." -
"Pimping, psychedelics, drowning, redemption and girl's soccer are the subjects stirring in these waters of hybrid funk" -
"The Captain Beefheart of hip-hop" - All Music Guide
The best work yet from Mackrosoft modern funk maestro Aja West -- a deft mix of both live vampy funk and turntables-and-breakbeats styles -- a record that features a tight core group of players and exemplary work by keyboard wizard Money Mark! The Olympian has a richer vibe than we were expecting -- with lots of live drums, synths, percussion, strings, horns and other elements blended into a really atmospheric, straight up fun vocals by Aja. - Dusty Groove
