Optimus Rob''s debut album Mood Synth is placing him on the radar as one of music''s most accessible electronic composers. He''s building a name for his crossover acoustic-electronic hybrids of danceable textures and downtempo beats.
From the label:
"It''s music for your mood, music to make your mood - a Mood Synth."
- Sonic Chronicle
"Appearing from the underground club scene with his debut album, Optimus Rob has combined polar opposites into rhythmic medleys that circulate between electronica, funk, classical and pop."
- Crown of Sound
"His ability to intersperse movement with sound has forged a new type of music - synthesis in the form its creators had envisioned."
- Attention Kid Deficit
"Mood Synth could be listed equally in Pop, Rock, Electronic, New Age, Funk, and Classical. Optimus Rob has blurred the lines between genres and created music in a form accessible to an expanded sea of listeners."
- Brokebeat Breaks
From the artist:
"Put on this CD, put on your headphones and press play. It will take you from 8am to noon before you realize it''s still the same disc. I bring to you a year of my life, a year of my work, and a year of my turbulent thoughts. Being able to express my feelings through music has given me a new appreciation for the sensations we encounter everyday.
I''m awaking every morning to a day that I love - and that''s a new feeling for me. I feel refreshed, open and excited about the future - and I know that I would not have reached this place without the journey depicted in this album. It''s a newer genre, an electronic fusion of downtempo, ambient textures amidst organic rhythms. It''s honest and pure.
I''m 23 years old an am just learning to listen to myself. Mood Synth soothes and excites your mind with a subtle ambience of melody and rhythm - evolving into sounds not yet produced. I don''t feel like I play one particular instrument - I compose sound with a purpose and find a freeing comfort in that." - Optimus Rob
