Bar-setting debut. Sounds like a veteran album. Dope rhythms and intelligent sound design/composition keep you on your toes, while the overall dubby feel lets your head float above the clouds. Will be looking forward to more from Detox Unit.

Fueled through heavy bass, synthesizer magic, enigmatic dub, and percussive leads, all four tracks takes the listener into a psychedelic journey through unique composition. Prepare to flourish into an elevated state of being through intriguing melodies, glitched-out frequencies, and dope vocal samples which create a unique blend of existence.
From a dimly lit cave in Austin's own underground, Joseph Roberts, aka “Detox Unit”, has been cooking up his own blend of futuristic frequencies for the past 4 years. His aim, to make the imagination run wild; to tickle the brain in impossible ways. Originally hailing from New York, Joseph spent his childhood tinkering with old radios and building computers, fascinated bu the near endless possibilities that they presented. Inspired by artists such as Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada, Monolake, and Luke Vibert, he picked up a copy of Ableton Live and a myriad of synthesizers and hasn't left his cave since. Now 4 years later Detox Unit has become a familiar and loved name in the Austin experimental music scene known for his intricately woven sets and unique productions.
