Constantly moving electronic music that your body will return the favor for. You have no choice but to cooperate with the production because it demands for you to dance. The last song is reminiscent of SOPHIE's Pretending where it's just a whole ambient song that provides completion to the album.
The good EDM keeps on comin’.

Impressive debut which is constantly evolving. The opening few tracks feature some really strong angular synths which sound almost harsh - but as the record progresses things get gradually softer and more spacey/dreamy. It’s a nice journey which makes for a good listening experience.

Fav Track: For 2_24
Least Fav Track: Adhesion
Incredible record from an inspiring and boundlessly creative artist. Dax's production is masterful and exacting. The album celebrates the beauty and power in queerness, boldly decrying exclusion and restrictive normativity. All bodies and love of all bodies are uplifted here and pushed to move in any and every way.
Pretty good IDM that is tied together with AMAZING percussion and beats. This has some great builds and decent synth sounds. Unfortunately, I found it to be a bit one toned as an album, this would have been a lot more cohesive as an EP or even a series of singles.
