Musical style[edit]

Eightcubed's musical style has been described as "fantastical, mesmerizing, strangely addictive, innovative, retro-futuristic and whimsical". In early 2007, Cue Mix Magazine proclaimed that his sound was "fascinating and groundbreaking".[15] Eightcubed has stated that he leaves his musical writing to be defined by critics and that his most ardent instrument is the computer.[16]
