According to Andy Kellman of AllMusic,

"While there might be other producers who are more accomplished at making idyllic downtempo, or placid IDM, or abstract hip-hop, or haunting ambient techno, or blipping/skipping minimal house, few—if any—are capable of covering all of that ground with such sharp consistency on one disc."[1]

Lusine is Armenian for moon. Lusine is also a common name in Armenia. L'usine is French for the factory.
