The results are juicy but fat-free Steinski-style scratch boogie symphonies” SPIN MAGAZINE“Faust’s scratches, juggles, and even skipping records coalesce into one giant itchy symphony with movement after movement of next-level skills taking the listener on an aural voyage through Faust’s ill psyche.” VICE MAGAZINE“Along with the arrival of the new millennium comes the advancement of music and how the world creates it. A world reigned by DJ Faust.” iMUSIC WEBSITE“Faust puts old-school hip-hop through a Technics blender for an accelerated history lesson that’s too damn funky for your room.” ALTERNATIVE PRESS“Dj Faust’s ‘MAN OR MYTH?’ is a dazzlingly virtuosic showcase for Atlanta’s subterranean DJ scene.” ROLLING STONE
