about

"The Cyclist is Andrew Morrison, an 18 year old native of Derry, in Northern Ireland, where he uses a £20 keyboard - whose constant errors generate random noises and extra tones - to make techno filtered through a sort of dark futurism. Named for Natalia Goncharova's painting The Cyclist, Morrison's music seems to emerge from the same singularity as the Russian futurists, with a constant flow and shuffling rhythm that creates its own realism in the distinctiveness and potential failings of frail technology." -Dwight Pavlovic

"...some banging low fidelity techno and house grooves with heavy-handed ambient passages spliced in." -Friendship Bracelet

"Like a debauched electronic artifact from a forgotten future, The Cyclist’s Bending Brass retains a near constant darkly-irregular groove punctuated by grimy and often-stuttering rhythms. And like a film about a dystopian future, this beautifully textured album indiscriminately seduces my thoughtful and creative sides." -Turntable Kitchen

"One of the best cassettes this year." -Dumpster Diving Blog

"...a new venture into electronic music, creating a warmer atmosphere full of texture and noise." -Rebel Magazine

"This dream-tripping techno opus surprises and pulls the mind, body, and soul to the dancefloor." -That's Deck

"...breathtaking." -Music Fan's Mic

"Great music..." -The Unfound

"There’s a wonderfully hypnotic vibe to the Cyclist’s music, a style which creates such a fantastic, transcendental feeling of euphoria." -Crack in the Road
