“During the many years I’ve known Elfström he’s been consulted to remix some of our mutual heroes and icons, and never failed to deliver a sweet addition to the many facets of the track or song at hand.” – Krister Linder
“Moist sounds and production have a timeless quality and depth and his influences demonstrate a musical heritage of the highest order. His work with various vocalists feels natural and he always manages to squeeze every drop of soul and beauty from a lyric and melody. His music is not out of place with the likes of Brian Eno and Moroder.”
– Rich Thair (Red Snapper)
