Although releases from artists such as John Tejada and Headset initially marked them as an electronic label, folks such as Damon Aaron are intent on stretching the boundaries of any prior preconceptions. If that seems comically simple, it's a fairly good example of the album's lyrical depth. There's lots of po-faced romanticizing and a little bit of blue eyed soul. Regrettable couplets like "Show me the way to freedom,, I want something to believe in", (from "Freedom") show up with alarming regularity. The few times when Aaron does attempt to incorporate electronic elements into his sound are less than memorable.
He's been nominated for Gilles Peterson's Worldwide winners and LA Weekly music awards. He's also been featured on several influential compilations including: Rewind! 3 (Ubiquity), Dublab Presents: Freeways (Emperor Norton), Impeach The Precedent (Kajmere) and Broadcasting (Sonar Kolectiv).
