Neocortex is a lab project gone awry. Henneke perfectly pays tribute to the dark souls who have championed electronics, but he goes further to craft a symphony of sorts. This symphony relishes in experimentation and shows that life may have an end, but not on his watch. As the release unfolds, so does the mind behind the master as he creates life after death, a gentle monster intent only on movement. Henneke single-handedly creates and maintains the honesty of the true techno sound. Born of passion and grit, Henneke has chosen the road less travelled. His music is reminiscent of the basement floors and littered warehouses where he cut his teeth. This is a sound where a sardonic smiles pairs perfectly with the darkest of evils. A place where the sun only slightly illuminates from behind the storm clouds. With recent releases featured on such labels as Mintec Musik and LW Recordings, he is now teaming with RACECAR, a match bred from family and camaraderie. [Source]

“Miss Li, a 22-year-old student in the city of Changchun, had been weeping on the window ledge of her seventh floor apartment and threatening to jump because her beau married another woman just days before their wedding.”
Bobby Dowell revels in the obscure and the darkness. He delivers a sound devoid of form, while embracing the traditional canvas of the most notorious of time signatures. One could say, he delights in the “different drummer.” The sound is dark and decadent, while creating a living, breathing human element that one could only describe as a soul. [Source]
If this song is A Perfect Shade of Dark, that shade is not the blackest of black. Dowell creates a soundscape of a full spectrum of color, bleeding red and purging grey. Although the emphasis is on the nightmare, you are plunged in the power of the dream. This is the soundtrack to hope all through the drumming of your heart. [Source]
