E3 & Alter Echo (+Tetrad Remix) - Cave Dweller EP Review – Trusik

...Tetrad’s remix [of E3's "Stalagmite"] will have the DJ’s drawing, flipping the script into a steppa with plenty of bass weight heft to scuff up some shoes, while liberally sprinkling a few pieces of sound data from the OG.

Juno Records Review of "Ashes Fall/Crumble" by Tetrad & Ahkur (FAV004) – Juno Records

LA not-so-confidential: Tetrad has been developing a strong reputation for slick sub aesthetics for a little while now, appearing on labels such as Sublimate and Sure State. Now bringing his emerging friend and sonic kindred spirit Ahkur along for the ride, the result is the smoke-stacked, toxic bass croaker that's "Ashes Fall", a powerful piece of darkness designed for 3am and later. "Crumble" sees Tetrad back on the solo flex with a sweet sub that sits behind everything anonymously until it starts to flop out behind the kicks in a dizzying, almost physical way. Authentic.

Boomkat Review of "Awaken Dub" (ZAMZAM46) – Boomkat

Lurching at the heels of Emperor T’s heavyweight delivery, also on ZamZam Sounds, LA’s Tetrad matches it step for step with the propulsive Awaken Dub up top, before going lower with the suspension-testing dubstep weight of Turn 1 on the other side.

Juno Download review of "Heart of Soundsystem"/"Well Maybe Dub" (SURESTATE013) – Juno Download

Calling your track "Heart Of The Soundsystem" is a bold move... But it's a move that LA new-blood Tetrad executes with serious skill: the bassline pumping with thick dub blood, power surges through every cone with life as it worms between sub and higher octaves amid a dense array of Pablovian textures. "Well Maybe Dub" is a much deeper, denser construction with a slow-and-steady kick that's wrapped in ten-tog duffle subs. One for lift off, one for come down... Hearty on.
