Musical style[edit]

Eightcubed's musical style has been described as "mesmerizing, strangely addictive, innovative, retro-futuristic and whimsical". In early 2007 Cue Mix Magazine proclaimed his sound 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]
