"Romain Collin fuses traditional improvisational techniques found in Jazz with the Electronic sensibilities of his sonic youth to create a star power that promises to transform itself into a pulsating crescendo of light and sound with the sole purpose of catapulting Collin from his perch in New York City to the strata of those musical innovators he has had the great fortune to learn from and work with closely."
Karas Lamb, The Revivalist

"Collin is armed with a killer instinct for progressive, spatially friendly instrumentals that present themselves in the form of mini-soundtracks. (...) His music is a unique, organic signature."
