"Kacy Wiggins, a.k.a. QPE, fittingly coined his style of music as "Roof Music," largely because roof parties as of late are the preferred recreational activity for Williamsburg, New York City's underground. It's easy to see why he chose this name after listening to Boolean Logic. QPE stands for "Quiet Personal Electronics", which couldn't be more of a misnomer, given that his mellow downtempo Brooklyn-style hip-hop instrumentals will make you want to turn the volume up, not down. Rugged blunted beats spar off with submerged basslines, reflecting urban grit and reminding you that this is the same borough that GangStarr prefers. The delay effect becomes almost an instrument in itself, as Wiggins dubs it up sublimely. The best thing is that the album is also available on vinyl for those of you who choose to bump these tunes on a rooftop of your own."
