This kid from California is only 17 years old, but he is already starting to make some waves with this debut album. I feel like it can get redundant at times, but that's the ambient influences bleeding through. Overall, this creates some really chill soundscapes that I can get down with. He also seems to be experimenting in other areas as well; "Cellular-17" is dangerously close to what I would call dubstep (womp, womp, womp, womp) but fortunately it still fits with the rest of the album. It is only fitting that this young producer is still finding his comfort zone with the first release, but I think the real challenge will see how he grows and what he ends up making next.
