about

"It’s become a test of survival and willpower; how much shit can one person stand... Vital Organs gave me the chiptune soundtrack needed to face the godly task of ridding the world of an oversized lizard..." - Tiny Mix Tapes

"Detainee's Vital Organs is rapid fire gaming music in technicolor. Controllers and joysticks are covered in pizza grease and the Pepsi has gone flat, but the music still slams. Far out." - Cassette Gods

"A dark hallucinogenic downward spiral through an America that is retro-futuristic, whose sleekness is juxtaposed by 16 bit jerkiness, that is all about leather, latex and Death Races. Dark, twisted, fantastic." - Sonic Masala (London)

"Opener “Speed Demon” is a hard-edged, melodic piece of slightly higher than 8-bit IDM. The sinister cool vibe carries across most tracks, and “Basement Party” introduces some suitably off-kilter computer tuned vocals. “California” has an oddly touching refrain of “California is under the sea/I wish you were here with me forever” delivered in a Lynchian style, and possesses a warm yet icy quality." - Foxy Digitalis (Tulsa, OK)

"Vital Organs is mad. It’s a fast-paced, near-crazed, almost demented blast of an album. Everything here shows a real knack for songwriting..." - Beach Sloth (New York)

"The album has a dark nostalgic sound reminiscent of primitive electronic music. In contrast to the re-emergence of 80’s electronic music of today, Vital Organs will take you all the way back to the 70’s with its analog synths and early drum machine sounds, think of a dirtier-glitched out Kraftwerk. " - Sick of the Radio (California)

"Simply put, Detainee is a 16-bit electronic wrecking machine. I'd say Vital Organs could be the love child of a Sega Genesis and Kraftwerk, but that wouldn't be doing the album justice. Really rad stuff going on here with the slickest retro electronic vibe I've heard in a long while. Yea, you totally fuckin' need this." - Gerauschkreig! Zine
