Abjective is a rare example of a quality electronic music that it necessary be able to listen avidly and attentively. In different musical styles of Abjective there converge the sensitivity, trembling and the lightness of being, but also on the other side there are an overcome, hysteria, broken spirit and destruction. In every note feelings multiplies by thoughts. In each sound there are questions, doubts, ways, ups and downs, faith and dreams – life is in each sound. Abjective’ music is like a talks about eternity.
