"On her follow-up Geometric Universe... Luxi is no longer downplaying her obvious songwriting chops. Bigger and bolder than its predecessor, yet even more openly emotional, it strikes an implausible balance between intimacy and spectacle, like an open mic performance punctuated with pyrotechnics. It’s one of the most engrossing electronic releases I’ve heard in years." -- Evan Rytlewski via Shepherd Express

"Electronic producer Luxi first fell onto our radar via the 2011 Miltown Beatdown. She had competed in the finals at Turner Hall, and her creativity was astounding back then. Fast forward six years, and that creativity has evolved tenfold, with the release of her new album, “Geometric Universe”. While still very much in the electronica realm, this album encompasses touches of ambient, indie, and pop, amongst many others. This feels like an experimental album, but that’s the sound that Luxi lives in; every project is an addition of some sort." --Allen Halas via Breaking and Entering

"Producer LUXI has been releasing music on Bandcamp at a steady clip over the past few years. Her latest, Geometric Universe, is the best electro-pop album that’s come out of the city in a long time. The record feels like a dark maze, weaving an uncertain path that continually sends the listener into different directions. Perhaps most impressive, the album accomplishes the difficult task of remaining revealing and personal while also feeling dark and sinister." --Kevin Mueller via Milwaukee Magazine

"It’s a gripping electronic album that channels those late-night, post-bar-close parties where the morning sunrise devilishly peeks through the blinds. On “Every Night,” a murky electro-pop banger, the message is simple: “I wanna feel all the time/ So I stay up every night,” LUXI repeats.
The production infuses sheets of noise behind LUXI’s vocals, but while the sonic assault could easily act like an emotional blanket that protects against revealing too much, Geometric Universe is a surprisingly personal piece of work. “Feeling so happy even when I’m crying/ Cause I know I got you by my side,” goes the subterranean, shape-shifting track “Own World.” It’s this frank honesty throughout the album that makes Geometric Universe such a captivating and inviting listen."

"..."Every time I start a new project I’m never sure where it’s going. I try to come at it from a different angle and think of a totally new melody that I haven’t heard someone else do or that I’ve done myself."
There is an intentional water metaphor woven into Hill’s lyrics, which are beautifully displayed in a 10-page zine that comes with a CD copy of ‘Geometric Universe.’ "

--Excerpt from interview with Joey Grihalva via 88.9 RadioMilwaukee

"The prolific l u x i (Alexandre Maxine Hill) has branched out into plenty of pop and electronic offshoots over the course of at least eight albums and numerous singles and videos. Her latest LP, astral memories (p a r a d i s e), reins in her experimental tendencies in favor of a single-minded, minimalistic approach. Grimes is an obvious touchstone for Hill’s haunting, sparse beats and melodies, and her heavily treated vocals suggest the cryptic influence of vaporwave, although her lyrics are personal rather than satirical. Can slow, hypnotic synth-pop still be considered dance music? Why not." --Milwaukee Record Top 25 Albums of 2016
