"RORSCHACK’s album is a fine fusion of hip hop based groove, electro-live, deep jazzy bass beats, woven together with the sounds of indo jazz, funk rock, and the rich worldly music of the Middle East and Persia. It is a creative masterpiece that induces the nostalgic memories based upon the archetypes of our pop-culture, from Star Wars, to Jim Morrison, thru Billy Holiday and Frank Miller. His music is a rare melody of dark and sensual, classical and sophisticated sound that tells a B&W story of sex, drugs, love and betrayal.
