The album was created as the RPM Challenge in February 2011.[7]

Reception[edit]

Gregory Heaney of AllMusic noted that the most impressive thing about the album is "its seemingly effortless flow as it drifts from track to track, intuitively guiding listeners through its eerie sonic depths before gently depositing them at the end."[1] Adam Kivel of Consequence of Sound called it "a fully-fleshed, well-orchestrated electronic album."[3]
