Review Exerpt by The Smoking Section/Uproxx.com:
For those who dare to dabble on the darkside or at least outside the lines of typical boom bap Mansion On The Moon have a bag of treats that come fully endorsed by music curators Diplo & Benzi. After collaborating with the likes of N*E*R*D and Chiddy Bangs Xaphoon Jones, the trios debut project Paradise Falls features tracks that are incredibly atmospheric with heady beats designed to keep your ears in the stars.
Combining the groups infinities with dubstep warbles and spacey synths, MOTM create an ambiance for those who love Drakes mellower tracks and CuDis dreamy soundscapes. Glimpse Of The Future sees the group team with Chiddy Bang beatsmith, Xaphoon Jones, over racing bass and schizophrenic keyboards, while Coldwater sounds like a lost b-side to an Empire of the Sun album. And, if for nothing else, listen to Satellite, Mansion On The Moons own pulsing interpretation of Deadmau5?s Strobe. Its pure butter.
This LA group has been called “The Future of Music”, has cosigns by superproducer Pharrell WIlliams, his group N.E.R.D (which also includes Shae Haley, the manager of Mansions on the Moon), Diplo, and more. Relaxing soundscapes, and an amalgamation of genres result in a gift to your eardrums. Take a listen and see for yourself.
