It’s been far too long since I finished a musical project and released it to the world. However, here’s the old page for an EP I finished in 2014.
Path Dependence (2014)
Press for Path Dependence
“Drawing inspirations from Nicolas Jaar's emotional soundscapes and Vangelis's intoxicated sci-fi scores, Limits builds an ecstatic outer space groove that excels between skyscrapers, menacing streets and dirty figures, giving birth to a must listen imaginary soundtrack that haunts our minds and souls inside its minimalistic glory!”
“Fans of Caribou will enjoy New York-based artist Toph Allen's latest song, "Limits," a mellow but engrossing electronic track.”
“Do you remember when Zero7 was at their peak? Do you remember when downbeat electronica had a place in your heart? Well, ‘Limits’ is tugging away at those strings begging you to accept the compositional bliss found within it’s more subdued artform.”
“Toph’s new track ‘Limits’ seems to blend the ambient beauty of Boards of Canada with Röyksopp’s pop-laden underlying rhythms. Small additions – like the introduction of a synth arp around the two-minute mark and the haunting string flourishes a few moments later as that arp progresses – are brilliantly executed. … This is up there with some of the better instrumental electronica I’ve heard all year.”
“Great instrumental electronic music with a focus on melody and texture … It’s a real pleasure to listen!”
