"R23X commits the latest futurism heavy vaporwave manual to the tech-savvy masses ... falling rain samples, tightlyspun techno sculptures and a sort of nostalgia for the future not really seen in the electronic underground since Optical's mid to late 90s output. The overall sound is sort of vaporwave concrète, industrial mechanisms and found sound samples create a disorientating feel that travels deep into the realms of Amon Tobin's Foley Room ... R23X transverses between trap-laden RNB to rhythmically mechanical blocks of hypnotic repetition that, as it unfurls, really starts to expand into a glossy puzzle like structure that in parts, resembles the same crackly city streets of Los Angeles by Flying Lotus. Except this time it's been plunged into the dead of night, with the street lights turned on to the neon glow of DVA [Hi:Emotions] and Bok Bok's grime, mapping out the way forward with a menacing realness that reflects the uncertain times it has been created in."

R23X is an amnesiac warrior and experimental producer - carrying nothing but a glaive and an MPC. Searching only for an answer to an ancient mystery ... lost in the distant past.
