Electro Single of the Month in Mixmag!

“Shir Khan’s excellent Exploited imprint continues to straddle boundaries with this first salvo into 2009.Think Electronic P-funk, spruced up by old skool house and wrung through an electro mangle.” (DJmag UK)

“Germany-based Rhodes delivers a hypnotic electro-funk concoction in the form of nine tracks.” (XLR8R Top10)

“A jackin’ smasher from Düsseldorf lad Rhode on Shir Khan’s label, all jittering yet dreamy beams of disco-techno and nods to Krautrock.” (TIme Out Magazine/UK)

“Bescheiden in der Attitüde, ohne prahlerischen Anspruch auf die nächste Club-Hymne, aber doch zauberhaft einnehmend in Harmonie und Beat präsentiert sich Lorenz Rhode auf dieser EP.” (SZ/Jetzt)

“Fusing electro funk, old school house and b-boy hand claps, this manages to sound like every great body-popping 80s synth record ever produced – and that’s just the title track! The rest is like Yellow Magic Orchestra soundtracking ‘The Breakfast Club’. Ace!” (Crack Magazine, UK)
