One of the groundbreaking IDM records of all time, one word extinguisher is a platter full of glitch and electronica instrumentals with well infused sound of hip hop.
An incredible piece of instrumental hip hop/glitch hop/electronica that deserves far more attention. In my opinion, this is right up there with Donuts and Entroducing.
A highly underrated album!

Masterfully blends the glitched out beats and textures of IDM and mixes it with hip-hop / downtempo. I feel like a lot of FlyLo fans would get into this album, as I feel like it kinda pre-dates his style off of stuff like Cosmogramma. A lot of the songs are super catchy and none of the beats seem to ever get repetitive. Because of how genre-blending this album is, each track seems have its own unique identity and stays lodged in your brain.
