    If humanity hangs in long enough, we will live to see the impact Iglooghost had on our music. It’s going to be a bottom-up kind of influence on pop production and composition, with a clear line from the avant-garde. Bear in mind, he has only just begun.

    If you're up for a highly creative, exhilarating sugar rush, Neō Wax Bloom will undoubtedly be one of the most joyous surprises of the year.

    The sheer density of stylistic markers here is perhaps most representative of the nature of Iglooghost’s production, the album being immersed in the chaos of skittering beats and cut-ups with vivid synth lines that twist, crack and inflate in dazzling clusters. [Oct 2017, p.55]

    Neō Wax Bloom begs for multiple listens and, once you’ve digested every morsel, you’ll be wanting to visit Mamu more often.

    Neō Wax Bloom is an insanely ambitious inversion of the comfort of repetition, and the whole album spills forward to unnerving effect.

    Neō Wax Bloom is a fantastical cartoon that's crash-landed in reality, and it begs your attention.

    Wow, this album is mind meltingly good. Every song seems to perfectly flow into one another, until it almost feels as though you're justWow, this album is mind meltingly good. Every song seems to perfectly flow into one another, until it almost feels as though you're just listening to one song. I normally am not one for an electronic album, but this is a MUST listen for anyone. Immensely enjoyed this record. 9/10 Expand
