"Karmøy’s 3-track Faded Pictures EP describes itself quite well. The title tracks unleashes a nostalgic flavor that casually clicks and flicks its way around a sizzling backdrop just as the beat begins to take shape. "Pivotal Moments" also manifests earlier Pole concepts of minimal refractions and snapping revelations. The differences occur when a glitchy backbone of melodies weave their way from the foreground into what could be described as fluid electrical fluctuations. On the closing "Adjunct," the emotional reveal of synths is ever present, a sincere melody subliminally merges with Lexaunculpt style precision. It's the presence of ingenuity and creativity that allows "Adjunct" to close Faded Pictures with absolute control and finesse." Read the whole review/feature

"The second release on mp3 label Boltfish and its getting better all the time. Karmoy plays the game with chilled lives and small powerful powerups, and then ditches them all to take it back to the level, how can all this be free?. Mad sh**." Read the whole review

"...Atmospheric subliminal broken beats. Silvered sounds enchained in a lullaby of musical notes reflecting the innocent and the sensual at the same time. They just made my brain explode in one million incandescent fireflies!"
