"... exhilarating blast of jazz fusion, synth-pop, and electro funk ... Imagine Kraftwerk composing a theme for an Atari 2600 cartridge." - JazzCorner

"... this album is a one stop shop for all sorts of tasty treats ... honestly one of the coolest things I've heard this year." - Chiptunes = WIN

"... radiates the 80s feel ... iconic sound and hooks ... face melting solos throughout ..." - Chip Bit Sid

A retro-electro-jazz concept album consisting of songs created exclusively using FM synthesizers and lo-fi drums. An exploration of the degree to which cold, digital synthesis can be transformed into the warm, human grooves and nuanced, improvised language we expect from the great art of jazz. A zany chiptune adventure down the pixelated rabbit hole. The synth-funk soundtrack to your brain.
