"a heady concoction that stands proudly.."

FACT MAG


Distortion wraps around celestial melodic lines with precision, masking the state of lo-fi into a higher field of dimension than most artists in the field can even come close to.

SOUNDCOLOURVIBRATION

"Full of rugged percussion and rich, melodic synths that have a heavy dream-like element"

MTV Hive


"beat-heavy, kaleidoscopic notes then synchronize with Egadz's hand movements and the digital bursts of light, making for a trippy, lo-fi experience"

The Creators Project (VICE)

 

"In Egadz's new video, the future of music is living inside the machine"

i09

PAST YEARS PRESS:

“Egadz brand of electronica is elusive and so akin to Aphex Twin. The California native doesn’t eclipse dude, but he does put forth an equally atypical and awesome sound.” 

URB

 

“When you can evoke emotion without words you’re doing something right”

 Synthesis

 

“Egadz stands in the shadow of shadow, but does a fair job of shining the light on something exciting, if not entirely new”

 Xclaim 



“this San Diego native’s first contribution is up there with Quannum, Heiro, Defari, Dilated, Ras Kass, and the rest of the West Coast elite.”

 POP! Stereo 



“Egadz is not only an MPC/MPD button pusher with talent, but his production skills with hard drums and dark sounds that is reminiscent of early DJ Shadow, Jel, Blockhead, Alias etc.”
