All Music Guide:
Mixing left-field hip-hop with melodic electronica, producer/multi-instrumentalist Tom Burbank creates a sound somewhere between Prefuse 73, RJD2, and his labelmate Edit. The Los Angeles native was once a member of the Fela tribute band Afrobeat Down, and played numerous DJ sets up and down the California coast as a member of the BrokenBeat network. Burbank made his full-length debut in 2006 when Mike Paradinas' Planet Mu label released Famous First Words. Burbank explained the album as "a wonderful arrangement of frequencies in the field of 20 to 20,000 hertz with a twist of do right."
