“Blends sample-based boom-bap, ethereal soundscapes, and other genres into an individual statement.” -Prefixmag

“If you’re a fan of the current hip-hop trend towards spacey, hypnotic effects (see: Clams Casino, Evian Christ) or even just ambient electronic music, you’ll definitely want to give this a listen.” The Bay Bridged

“Tammariello’s productions seem to have carved themselves into a unique place between instrumental hip-hop (think Teebs, Bonobo, and the likes) and blissful techno (think Four Tet, Gold Panda, and the likes), incorporating dense soundscapes and sparkling melodies along with deep bass and starkly minimal beats.” -mapzzz

“Think Tycho dipped in blues-heavy RnB.” -Gluttony is the New Black

Chucha Santamaria y Usted (Young Cubs • Live)

“Perhaps disco would have been granted a longer shelf life had it been imbued with a sense of historical significance. Chucha Santamaria Y Usted aims to make that case, a pair of Puerto Rican and Brooklyn natives that now calls Oakland home. With a spirit and political sense that recalls “Arular”-age MIA, the two weave myriad subgenres of dance and pop with their message.” -RCRDLBL

“Craft forward-thinking electronic dance-pop that confronts ideas bigger than just getting people moving” -The Bay Bridged
“The album is arresting, effortlessly and earnestly fusing Latin freestyle, Italo disco, Nineties pop, and electro, along the way referencing Santigold, Ana Tijoux, Madonna, and maybe MIA before she got annoying — and, of course, the cross-pollinated proto-mashups of the American melting pot that Córdova had originally been inspired by.” -East Bay Express

“A dash of Puerto Rican spice” -NPR
