"The expressionistic and glitchy music on the EP contains elements of Fennesz’s sound, but Mirolo manages to get up to a lot of different things over the course of twenty five or so minutes. Three tracks in particular stand out. ‘Ear Geography/ Matches in High Wind’ starts off like a Farben track with that unmistakable smooth whirr, but develops beyond the comparison once its live drums kick in, creating the impression of something ghostly acquiring a vital physical presence.

"He’s not afraid of noise and adventurously delves straight into corrupting the given structures of melody and rhythm with strange chirrups and washes of jarring sound that, rather than spoiling the beauty of thoughtfully-constructed patterns, emphasise them. Ickis Mirolo seems to have little truck with replicating other people’s sentiments and instead, delivers a noisy, unnerving and very striking alternative instead." - Harmless Noise
"Yet another one to watch on the Irish underground electronic scene. His sound it unique not fitting into to wide fuzzy genres of bass or beat music, he rather opts for a much more intricate and delicate sound that is irresistibly appealing."-Soundblob
"Ickis Mirolo has just released his PACHYDERMY EP to wide acclaim, The EP is mixture of all things in dark ambient wave music, house, dubstep and techno and creates a dark and dreary basement club vibe that really represents a half and half of the label and Ickis’s own imprint “Rand Records”.-FSL
"Judging by what live sets I’ve seen, Ickis Mirolos “Pachydermy” EP is just the tip of an iceberg of material waiting to be released. Comprising of found sounds taken from scratch or made from samples of objects, this is the sound of someone trying to find a meeting point between noise/sound art and basement dubstep. The music is punctuated by various breaks in order to put more emphasis on textures and sounds for the listener"- LittleGreen.ie
