Igloomag Review “If you’ve not heard of Carbinax or 2ndMouse, now’s the time to tune in and get your fix—he’s amassed around 18 releases, numerous compilation appearances, and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. The 2ndMouse moniker, retired as of 2016, comes back to life in the form of […]

Reviews

“All Ears is my current front-runner for album of this year. It was released just a couple of months ago by Chris Carbinax and is the kind of album that reminds me why I spend so much time trying to discover new music. It is explosive, spine-tingling, Cheshire Cat smile […]

“Acquiesce” review by Igloomag December 2014

Reviews

Playful, articulate electronics, melodic and nostalgic, 2ndMouse returns with Acquiesce. 18 audio snapshots shed raw energetic synthesizer acrobatics which bubble to the surface from start to end. “Chroma” and “Fissure” are prime examples of Chris M’s sweet yet tactile approach to cohesive electronic music. Sliding to and from polished mechanical […]

“Communique” review By Igloomag July 2014

Reviews

“Raw techno slabs maneuvered via analog machines, plastic rhythms, gritty melodic videogame themes and bass dribbling, 2ndMOUSE (aka Chris Steven McKeown) pulls all the left-field danceable bits into byte sized chunks on Communique. Tangible downtempo beats strewn across funky vocal snippets and experimental ragga tinkering, there’s an array of genre […]
