"Seemingly out of the ether, Pressed And shows up to 'Raid' with swaths of bells and haunted vocals that fluctuate wildly in pitch. This is real headphone candy that eventually uses a low-end swell to add a substantial soulful melody. You know how everyone says 'It's like a movie' and it's never really true? This one actually is." -RCRD LBL

"I have a feeling... that this duo is destined for greatness. Imbue Up is a cassette that goes far beyond the trappings of both -step and -wave based genres, to create something richer, more spacious, infused with an undeniable ambient legacy. Watch these guys. They are bound to make quite a stir in the electronic scene." -Weed Temple

"You know how James Blake would have sounded if you'd combined the warp 9 electronic dance of his CMYK EP with all of the singer-songwriter-y feelings he had on his debut album? Well, think of that, and then throw some Aaliyah in, and then chop and screw it, and that's the best way I can describe Chapel Hill/Brooklyn duo Pressed And. Half witch house (the good half, we should say) and half Timbaland." -Prefix Magazine

"...a lush, sultry swim through the warm waters of electronic pop music." -OMGVinyl

"Imbue Up isn’t the electronica that’s going to hit you like crack, it’s more that MDMA slow build, ‘Run’ kind of electronica. The kind that when tune is finally resolved, you feel peaked." -Dingus on Music

"Melodic bass dreams, the party Valium brownie of rave, celestial Gurkha parties in the ice caves of the Himalayas. It's drifting, chopped and screwed, drag and bass, ambient R&B, chillwave as seen from behind the bike sheds, ghetto hippie music." -Fokkawolfe

"...brilliant... chilled electronic pop." -Bowlegs Music

"I’ve got chills going up and down my spine." -Flashlight Tag

"...a knock-out success and definitely one of the more unique records of the year so far." -Speaker Snacks
