Album Notes
Technology Is Lonely occupies the space in between the dancefloor and the living room. Meant more as an accompaniment to one's everyday existence, it still has it's hip shaking tendencies. Warm techno/house and ambient dub with introspective, often melancholic melodies allows Honig to explore his environment, thereby lending a hand to the listener doing the same. Though the means used are largely digital, the conclusion arrived at is organic, friendly, and human..

Big Shot Magazine

mature, unpredictable... meditation on the man vs. machine relationship
Using muted dub, click house, and ambience, Honig has crafted a mature, unpredictable collection of meditations on the man vs. machine relationship. This aptly named disc from downtown NYC's Ezekiel Honig is what your computer would sound like if it came to life, and instead of trying to destroy you or lull you to sleep, it just wanted to be friends and shoot the shit for a while.

Arthur Blank

good warm tech house
Warm tech house - inviting, yet astringent - keeps you guessing, but the delivery is worth it.

I love Technology and Ezekiel Honig!
I love Technolgy is Lonely! It is somehow mellow but exciting, introverted but also friendly, serious but whimsical at the same time. You can just kick back to this album and let it float over you, but it also warrants a close listen to catch Ezekiel's nuanced technical ability and complex beats. This album makes you think, but it makes you feel good, too. Technology has certainly found a friend in Ezekiel Honig.


"...manages to keep the funk alive and active from start to end."
There's an area inside the musical realm of electronics that motivates the senses in a way that is quite magical. It's that moment in time when layers shift and basslines bubble in a sea of percussive oddities. This is the sound of technology taking a break from the everyday rigmarole of daily life. When intricately lazy rhythms are fitted in an accessibly gritty-techno outfit, you begin to realize that the meat of this album is actually chilled out and resting in the backyard ready for the listener to absorb.

Technology Is Lonely is Ezekiel Honig's debut CD-release for the newly formed New York City based Anticipate Recordings. Maneuvering its way through deep and dubby 4/4 rhythms, Honig manages to keep the funk alive and active from start to end. With a nod to artists like Sutekh and Safety Scissors, Ezekiel Honig forges a simpler approach with emotive basslines and Berlin styled minimal-techno clicks that might appeal to fans of Mille Plateaux's Clicks & Cuts series.

Technology may certainly be the centre of today's musical onslaught of electronic releases, but it's also good to hear that Anticipate Recordings mandate is to nurture a more focused and accessible sound for the masses --balancing ambience, dub, techno and IDM in one swift
(e)motion. As a debut CD, Technology Is Lonely marks the beginning of Honig's technological accomplishments and Anticipate's forward-thinking mission.

Both Sides of the Surface

"...a gifted ear among minimal electronic music makers."
Ezekiel’s debut full-length is a quiet introduction to not just another bedroom musician, but a gifted ear among minimal electronic music makers. While the album contains moments of isolation and contemplation, these songs aren’t cold and impersonal (a stigma commonly forced upon digitally generated sounds). Beneath the clicks, cuts, whirrs, and hums of each track beat a warm heart, a curious mind, and a slightly shy and awkward spirit. Without the need for three verses, a chorus, and a bridge, the sounds that make up Ezekiel’s music create aural interpretations of the mundane occurrences of daily life, as well as what’s happening around us while we’re asleep. Songs like “escaping the suit,” “juxtapose,” “love session,” and “fields” seem wrapped in various emotions: the overwhelming need for a change in routine, seeking out that elusive moment’s peace to yourself, or the butterflies in your stomach that appear when your soul mate smiles at you. All of this is open to debate, of course, but you will come away with something. From bouncing and quirky click house to midtempo ambience washing over a center of muted dub, Technology Is Lonely makes the case that heartfelt grooves are not a contradiction in terms. The proof is no further away than your headphones.
