An amazingly unique style of deep and intelligent electronic music. By accident I found his material seven or so years ago and it continues to have a very high replay value. There is a tremendous amount of depth to his compositions and each time you listen to it, you will discover something cool and new.

ALL of his albums are solid, but unfortunately very hard to find. Innovative and intelligent, one of a kind.

One of the best electronic artists to emerge from europe, Ruxpin can be compared to Apparat and Telefon Tel Aviv.
Recommended especially are his albums 'Midnight Drive' and 'Magrathea' which detail crisp beats and exquisite soundscapes.
