"To sit at a table with the sounds of 214 is to be served large portions of honey-buttered electro beats, side dishes of synth-line treats, and dollops of IDM-get-down. Like most musicians, Chris Roman's path is rooted in a veritable melting pot of sounds. Some of the influences are obvious, others not so much. His Puerto Rican birthright and Miami upbringing ring apparent when he's pumping out sci-fi roller disco sounds, but when his vibe turns to the cold dark comfort of Detroit-esque minimal mind funk, it would seem this man forgets from whence he came. But it's not so much a lapse, as a love of diversity, a creative finesse with a variety of good tastes. 214 effortlessly blends lush Latin roots with robo-transformer trips, always maintaining a skilful balance between the nasty, the not-right, the cold, hard, and just-right, all at the same time. He's got plenty of tricks up his proverbial record sleeve, and he's been pulling them out for years now."
