“You don’t need to know much about techno for Fundamentals to register as something special… A beautifully austere, four-track exercise in quality control and rigorous decision… it is assertive work, bold in the precision and subtlety it takes to mix such signals with thrill and grace and restraint.” — NPR Music

“Top to bottom, this is well-crafted dance music — the kind that makes the floor feel sturdier beneath your feet while still allowing your head to get all-the-way loose.” — The Washington Post

“Rodgers’ dance floor material is warm and immersive. Body music from a heady source.” — Resident Advisor

“Sweet sweet jams… both powerful and soothing, darting effortlessly from pulsing grooves to ethereal spaces.” — Bandcloud
