about

I don't have words to describe this music.
That's why it's instrumentals.
It may be a dark feeling, or a light uplifting feeling, or a confusion, but I'm not to determine how it is that you feel about these things.
Just some bumps with some hidden meaning.
Feel what you want. All love.
Get Weird.

"Delirium. Suburban paranoia and lurking behind curtains. Authoritative voices telling you what you should do "for your well-being!" but instead only instilling The Fear. Tones your ears want to recognize as pleasant, but there's something a bit off about them, something not quite right past the surface, much like aural uncanny valley. You should be playing out in the sun, but instead you sit inside with the blinds drawn. DEATH & ACID IS A VERY APT TITLE FOR THIS TAPE, DAX." Rachel of #TITS

"- reflects Diogenes's mercurial arranging skills as he ingeniously layers a cornucopia of seemingly disparate elements over 22 concise tracks—none surpassing three minutes. Death & Acid is trippy and disorienting in the manner of underground classics by MPC subversives like DJ Frane and Sixtoo." - Dave Segal, The Stranger

"Fittingly, Death & Acid rattles with distinct remnants of audio technology’s lo-fi past. Static crackles, distant whines, and gurgling hums serve as a constant underlying texture. One track, jokingly titled “literalfiller,” is structured around the iconic, screeching machine melodies of ’90s-era dial-up modems. Somewhat vexingly, the wide range of outdated media referenced and employed gives this collection of songs a timeless feel."
- Daniel Roth, Seattle Weekly

"-the work of fractured hiphop hobgoblin Diogenes, whose just-dropped Death & Acid shoots 22 tracks of unfiltered beat-consciousness straight to the brainstream, a kaleidoscopic trip down rap’s rabbit hole dipped in formaldehyde and a not insignificant amount of bad LSD." Kyle Fleck

"Phone on blast? Fucking kill it. Let Diogenes rip that shit in half with his supreme beats and gnarled collages. He’ll lay you up for a good while. Shut off the world. Get supine in a vacuum. Gurgle that daily tragedy with some gumption and go deep within Death & Acid." - Tiny Mixtapes
