"Alexander is back again, with a new two track EP and again stretching the range of one of the great sonic sculptors of our time. This is shake your ass club thump. The open expansive feel of the synths, the thunderous driving bass, I couldn’t help throw my hands in the air. Beautiful syncopation and vocal cadence. Track one Meter has a Blondie Atomic energy while pulsing in hues of violet and crimson.
Favorite Track: Kartenwarten – The glorious sway and slide of this track. I’m on a cliff staring at the sea, feeling the slow shifting power of dark water. So many textures and concepts bleeding together in harmony. A true work of beauty." - Sounds & Shadows (USA)

"Hot, excruciating glaring synth swathes transfix the tumultuous inner chaos embodied by a menacing, cloudy tide of driving thundering beats, throbbing bass resonances, and glistening hallucinatory reverberations to create uneven bursts, cuts, and spirals of angry energy, smouldering back and forth around the agonizing sorrow of crushed, baritone male vocals, struggling against the disturbing realization that society and loved ones are divided on life-altering world views. Decisively more introspective and elegiac the flipside, “Kanterwarten”, amidst tiresome hypnotic heavy beats and sharp, blinding synth glares, drowning deep in a sorrowful meditation steeped in oppressive and disturbing anguish until the cathartic and heartbreaking final cry." - White Light / White Heat (ITA)

"'Meter' brings out a tumultuous inner chaos with a swirling layered synth flow, fueled by the pwerful rhythms and beats in an elegant industrial atmosphere. 'Kartenwarten' cleverly blends a diversity of atmospheres together. Hazy synths, hauntingly hypnotic drums and misty vocals end in a melancholic meditation full of sadness.
Both songs leave a taste of disillusionment and despair." - Luminous Dash (BEL)
