“Now here’s a producer that treats music as Picasso did paintings. Morphamish’s works seem similarly varied in terms of both style and subject matter and he’s just as prolific. Then when it all goes cubist, his glitched up blends of fragmented bass music act like the Three Musicians packed in their gear for a sampler, synth and sequencer. Needless to say, he’s a nutter, but the good kind that always smile as they rock back and forth to a sinewave LFO.” Electrikal
