Elliott Watson Solid production, delicious melodies, carefully crafted timbres, dynamic transitions. Zabutom makes the best chip music I've ever heard, but this album goes beyond the 8-bit sound. Favorite track: Redux34.
Three Star Smash

Three Star Smash A delicious and cerebral blend of IDM-esque bleep and electric guitar, showcasing zabutom's matured, more unhurried composition style. It's not Zeta Force or any of numerous high-energy, classic cracktro collabs with Dubmood, but the jazz-infused '90s demoscene vibe to the whole affair tickles the brain in a different but equally pleasing way. Favorite track: Noor.

Janis Geiger I love this album, it’s my favourite one at the moment. The melodic arrangements and beats harmonize quite well and complement each other. The harmonies and colours on this album are quite into deep minor tones, but the majority I have to admit is very major. The guitar playing next to the synthetic “overdubs” reminds me a bit of Harmonia, at times. I love the fact that Zabutom did everything by himself with his little versatile fantasy inventions. This album makes me feel better. :) Thank you!

bryface international music concern Perfect blend of chip and non-chip elements, both stylistically and sonically. Supremely confident and innovative songwriting here that knows when to groove, when to let loose without abandon, and when to show restraint. A nicely moody album for the ears to chew through on overcast/rainy days =P Favorite track: Jasmin white.

Marcus Lönebrink Legendary chip musician Zabutom (aka ZabuGOD) returns with a hot mess of Game Boy, guitars and FM-synthesis. Redux34 is a fresh blend of styles and instruments, delivering a utterly pleasurable listening experince - all with the trademarked Niklas Sjösvärd sound. Favorite track: Redux34.
