"Early works from artists such as André Estermann, Arovane, Deru, Einóma, and Phonem come to mind when listening to Freq 255, Onsy’s debut for Schematic. Tried and true melodic strands weave through clicks, cuts, bleeps, and subtle low-end blips. Fragile and sincere in structure, there’s a pulse pushing this album forward. From Al Qahirah, Egypt through Miami, Florida, Freq 255 is a soothing electrical field.

Rhythmic bass-beats and glitch-infested tails of times gone by mark “Freq001” and its counterpart “Freq009,” both elegant if not hypnotic-dub slices of life. Elsewhere you’ll find modular equipment gently triggered on the windswept static details of “Crack Cake.” It’s an underwater sojourn that ebbs and flows via strange echoed oscillations, only to be complimented by a bustling jolt of energy near its closing minutes. The polyrhythmic flickering featured on “1994” and “Cutoff V3” are just enough to keep the momentum going on Freq 255. Saving perhaps, the best for last, “Vetamine K” is as close as one can get to ambient-electronic perfection. This closure elicits finer elements from the above-mentioned musicians—entangled harmonic bass and beats, extraterrestrial clicks, and fluid sound-design with pitter-patter sonic shuffling to boot. Rounding the lush assortment is “Nnone,” a fragrant drifting drone and elongated neoclassical stream of subconscious.

Freq 255 manifests 7-tracks composed with utter style and finesse, its overarching nostalgic IDM charm is timeless." Igloo Mag
