REVIEWS

"En la Ciudad de México sobresale el trabajo de Wakal como una muestra de música cibernética cocinada en la urbe más apocalíptica del planeta. Su receta consistió en capturar distintos ambientes urbanos: mercados, transportes colectivos, calles y con ellos trabajar piezas electrónicas." Enrique Blanc: "Latintrónica" (2008)
