Crack Magazine

Stylistically, Time Spent Away from U doesn’t waver far. But the record is infectious in its simplicity, and there’s enough emotional potency to see it through, allowing Seinfeld to transcend his ‘spoof house’ trappings once and for all.


Behind DJ Seinfeld’s resolutely non-serious façade lies a strikingly wistful take on deep house. His debut LP pushes even further in this direction.

Resident Advisor

If you're a seasoned house music fan, it's unlikely you'll find new ideas or perspectives on Time Spent Away From U.

Despite it's rawness on the mixing side of things, the ideas on this album really catch onto your ears. An essential listen for any Outsider House enjoyer. The emotion, and aesthteic of this album is certainly felt, and one could argue that the rough edges reflect that. That is, if you enjoy being a pretentious nerd, like me.
this shit sound like the battle pass
Nice grooves, nice ideas, nice work; but it lacks of production quality. It feels unsatisfyingly raw in some cases, making this album to feel relatively unfinished. Is really nice, I can vibe to it, but nothing gets me surprised, sadly.

I'm still triggered that people still compares this to 2012-2017, just, no. Not close, sadly.

Highlights: Time Spent Without U, U, Come Thru For U, I Hope I Sleep Tonight.
Would be even better if only the mixdown was cleaner...
