This music is based on how my dreams have been working throughout the years.The thing I like about dreams is that there are no schemes, no shames, no recipes and everything can happily or strangely cohabit with everything else.The way the songs are composed are similar to what I’ve expereinced in my dreams so far. Like the hospital in my hometown turned upside down and placed in the middle of a race circuit, or me riding a turtle dressed up like Darth Vader, chasing my auntie along the dock of an unknown port in Malaysia. And other billions of strange and funny combinations of the puzzle- pieces of my life.And everybody’s life I suppose.Some of this dreams are made in a song form, some others are built like a possible dream would develop. Some vocal parts sound like somebody that’s sleep talking and the music is supposed to be what’s sonically going on in his/her head or you can hear that the music melts when somebody is falling asleep. And if you listen at a reasonable low volume you can still hear the music and what’s going on in the room next to yours at the same time.It’s very interesting. I swear.Apart from this, I also think that this music is good for your heart.And, by the way, this album has been recorded inside a cardboard box.

and some said:

"..the whole thing has this very soft feel, like there is no rush to get the end, so you can just live in the moment."
(Forward Music)

"..it’s a oddly attractive minor masterpiece of bits and sounds"
(Free Albums Galore)

"..broken beats, chill vibes, fragmented samples, and acoustic guitar leads combine to form one of the most interesting and enjoyable releases of the year."

"..a collection of dream-inspired gently imaginative compositions."
