"Distract Robots is an otherworldly treat; its five tracks take the listener down a constantly morphing auditory wormhole full of light, darkness, and cosmic bliss [...] the listener is presented with a set of dystopic ballads and pensive, melancholic outings that carry deep, emotive cores. Distract Robots is a debut of staggering details and depth, and one that warrants many return visits."
"One can find a secure feeling for melodies, impressing even more, if you know that Frieder Nagel is a self-taught musician. Dark and intriguing are his productions filled with synthesizers, simple rhythms yet astonishing intensity."
"One of the few electronic releases, you could show your classical-music-loving parents easily [...] warm synths flying around together with delays and a nostalgic baseline pulsating underneath. Detailled effects everywhere, really good harmonies and exciting arrangements (10/10)."
