osv_reviewjune2010  "We’re huge fans of Justin Lassen’s work in games and film. From his work on Midnight Meat Train with Jason Hayes and Gerard Marino to his disturbing Out of Hell soundtrack and Synaesthesia solo album, his dark cinematic compositions have kept us at the edge of our seats on more than one occasion. Well, for musicians and composers out there who are looking to explore this  dark orchestral style for themselves, it just got a lot easier to venture into these haunted soundscapes with White Rabbit Asylum, a new loop and sample library overseen by Lassen himself." - Read Full Review @ OSV (June 2010)

sonoma_interviewjune2010  "Some have said that advancements in technology were killing the music industry. They've claimed that the internet and file sharing have destroyed the music industry and eliminated people's desire to pay for music. Others have said that creativity has been lost and bands are not trying anything new. Justin Lassen shatters these views in almost everything he does. His rise to fame was not because of a some pop hit or jingle, it was millions of downloads of his classical-electronic symphonies. With remixes for Lady Gaga and Linkin Park, he earned the respect of the music industry, but it was his innovative use of computer generated art that earned him the accolades of the visual art world. Justin broke new ground by creating original music inspired by and matched to still CG imagery. A passionate DrumCore and KitCore user, Justin took time out of his incredibly busy schedule to let us know what he's working on, how he gets inspired, and how DrumCore helps his workflow." – Read The Full Interview @ Sonoma Wire Works (June 2010)

sony_interviewjune2010  "A self-proclaimed "old school user" at the age of 28, Justin Lassen has been using the tandem combination of Sound Forge and ACID since the early days, and his work can be seen (and heard) in a bevy of different places. His maudlin sojourns into soundtrack creation (Midnight Meat Train) and symphony composition (And Now We See But Through A Glass Darkly) have resonated with thousands of gothic and indus-trial fans, while his remix work for Top 40 bands like Lady Gaga and The Killers flex his penchant for twisting up pop melodies into new sonic landscapes. He's also just released a Sony Creative Software Premium Collection loops and sample library, White Rabbit Asylum. We spoke with Justin about how ACID Pro compliments his workflow as a producer, a remixer, and a composer, and why he's stuck by the software since its first iteration back in 1998." – Read The Full Interview @ Sony (June 2010)
