De La Soulviet in The Los Angeles Times
Rather than mix Da La’s classic a capellas with party rock, techno, or an overly familiar staple of the canon, TenDJiz pairs them with classic Soviet soul and jazz breaks and beats. Under no circumstances should this work as well as it does, but the blends are artfully done and the samples are tastefully chosen." Read more

TenDJiz's Synth Souls in Cent Magazine
"If you are a fan of Janelle Monae, you’ll find the back conceptual back story endearing and Daft Punk fanatics will also get a kick out of it’s other-worldly robotic nature. Interestingly, it’s hyper-autotune vocalization might be a social commentary in itself, poking fun of today’s blatantly fake production techniques. Thus provoking the possible realization that it’s actual conceptual setting is in the present day." Read more
