"Mike Zabrin reveals a voice that merges funk, R&B, hip-hop, jazz and fusion. He works both ends of the spectrum, from sexy and soulful on the slow-grooving song "Cat & Mouse" to fast and furious on the high-tempo slapathon Fact Fiction."
-Bass Player Magazine
"An insane new bassist with incredibly catchy songs. One of the best funk releases of 2014."
-Funkatopia Magazine
