FACT Magazine

In terms of its complexity and level of skill on display Breakthrough is a big step up for Bensussen.

Pitchfork

It's the album that gets at his recent creative mode most definitively, the one people might figure he had in him rather than the one that changed anybody's minds about him.

Drowned in Sound

Gaslamp’s debut might be a bit too arcane for mass adoration, thus keeping it off the radar.

Consequence of Sound

The dark is where GLK chooses to excel. Given the opportunity, the producer will bring us all deep underground with him.

NME

In 2012, with Flying Lotus set to redefine the LA scene with his keenly awaited fourth album ‘Until The Quiet Comes’, it’s not quite enough.

This is a record that should almost lull you into an on going daze, yet too often it grabs your attention with unwanted brashness.

Great experimentalism and electronic sounds in The Gaslamp Killer's debut album. Breakthrough builds up on 17 songs for a true transcendental electronic experience, blending a whole lot of genres in this meticulously built chaos. The album also features a wide range of experimental artists such as Gonjasufi and Shigeto, and gets better through it's second half. An intense and intriguing experience.
