"Hokes is an experimental and ambient beatsmith who marries man-made sounds with natural, organic effects. The 21-year-old New Jersey native aims to paint not only an auditory trip, but visual imagery conjured by utilizing a seemingly erratic and spontaneous yet meaningful song structure. His recent EP Head Games embodies a philosophical approach and passion in composing each piece.

Head Games is a five-piece EP that is filled to the brim with textured sounds. It's a journey through a dense forest of layers and unexpected sounds, which will keep you on your toes as you find yourself immersed and intrigued by the minimalistic approach that fills up that hole of silence. The style Hokes utilizes is somewhat similar to that of Noyce's in Moment's Good. With each of the five songs having its own personality, and one being a remix of Flight Facilities' "Crave You", you'll experience wonderful auditory ecstasy from the opening minutes to the waning seconds of Head Games.

Auditory foreplay." - Phillip Yung, Earmilk.com
