His multi-genre compositions have been featured on influential labels like Warp Records and Planet Mu (most recently having been signed to the mighty Ninja Tune). While Angelides' tracks encompass a wide range of electronic styles, he avoids classifications. Bleep.com described his tracks as "Masterfully produced...
sophisticated, post-Dilla hip-hop funk". His recently released full length album on Ninja Tune has been praised as: "Eskmo has created his own sound." - Future Sequence "Electrifyingly enveloping...Sufficient mind-melting invention here...to render Eskmo a hotter property than that chilly moniker might immediately imply." - BBC Music "Telling a story...futuristic...a feel of musique concrete...It's a unique vision and fascinating example of the intersection of organic and electronic." Fact Mag "Elegantly melodic, beautiful electronics and enough skewed rhythmatics to make this release a brilliant opening full-length release." - Bleep In the past five years he's released over a dozen singles and EPs while touring throughout North America and Europe. He's also remixed works by diverse artists such as Bibio, Spor, STS9, Amon Tobin and Bar9, to name a few. Angelides also runs the Ancestor label, which issued his "Hypercolor" and "Angus Dei" singles in 2009 to positive reviews from numerous magazines, blogs and tastemakers.
Ninja Tune recording artist and film composer Amon Tobin hailed his work as "some of the best production I've heard in recent times."
