My style :

it’s electronical, sometimes cold / it rocks and glistches, but, now, it’s getting warmer / it’s having a look on our human condition, using the eyes of a machine / it’s buzzing / it’s craking / it floats in the eathereal areas of some electronic dreams / on the razor edge, at the frontier between psychic equilibrium and sickness melancholy, where rhythmic deconstruction is the rule / it is … the wet machine mechanics.
