"Miyashita plays Jekyll and Hyde"
- Bleep

"While the glitch pioneers tended to favour a stripped down minimalism, Miyashita takes advantage of advances in processing power to create maximalist symphonies of jittery orchestral samples, granular synthesis and dense textural wash. --- his complex creations are well crafted and worth checking."
- Cyclic Defrost

"Esoteric excursion"
- Igloo Magazine

"A jarring mix of ethereal soundscapes and abrasive noise."
- The Quietus

"Yu Miyashita's music hits you like a wave, in which each droplet of water is replaced by a string of digitized code. When first hit, it is impossible to decipher anything but raw emotion and sound, such is the seemingly impenetrable structure of it, resplendent in white noise mutated by the human hand."
- Silent Ballet

"Haunting the listener in short bursts of deathly hymns."
- Stray Landings
