ripatti is a new label from sasu ripatti, better known to the world as vladislav delay. envisaged as a studio diary of sorts, the label will be cataloguing ongoing experiments made by sasu in his studio on his own and alongside various collaborators. this first twelve features two extended productions from sasu under his own name, feeding into the emergant techno/footwork nexus and delivering something far removed from the submerged dub variants he made his name with on his classic 12-s and albums for chain reaction and mille plateaux. instead, they continue the percussive experiments which he started to explore on last... more
sasu ripatti (aka vladislav delay) flexes supple footwork-techno muscle with the 5th in his forward dancefloor series. following a crackshot collaboration with twwth, this edition is leaner, more spacious, conducting a stoic blend of aerated atmospheres and teetering rhythms driven by staggered, crumpling drums in #54 , and a ruggedly fluid sort of electro-footwork syncopation finding a sort of strange, centred, quasi-speed peace in the snake-styled writhe of #46 . drop em like they re hot...
the latest in vladislav delays new label series finds the man himself & max loderbauer (nsi, sun electric) on top, uncompromising form. operating somewhere between wolfgang voigt s pounding waltzes and the tunnelling techno of rrose, the a-side s #2 tucks up militant triplets and chaotic, streaming synthlines to febrile effect. over on the flip #6 involves a hyper-accelerated production sounding something like dj stingray and villalobos having it out at breakneck momentum with a gush of stepping drum percolations and bouncing micro-melodies peaking for a delirious climax. its properly maladjusted business, and all... more
vladislav delays ep >espoo< features two new conceptual, rhythm-intense tracks. whereas the groove of the opener >olari< derives from a sound loop which is manipulated by filters and echoes and finally brings forth the intensifying beat, the reverse is done with >kolari< on the b-side. starting from an impulsive, staccato beat, a sound carpet is woven by means of modifiers which gradually shape a permanent vacation-like melody, close to terry rileys minimalistic concepts. both tracks share a linear increase in density, and because of their break with the common four-four time, they create a certain folkloric atmosphere. like with >vantaa<, the experienced music producer vladislav delay continues his search for dance-floor compatible, yet unique and fresh music.

with vantaa, raster-noton releases for the first time an album by vladislav delay aka sasu ripatti. ripatti, one of the pioneers of electronic music of the last decade(s), who is known for several projects, has attracted our attention and received our respect most notably under his pseudonym vladislav delay. vantaa will be the beginning of a long lasting collaboration, which will extend and deepen the spectrum of the label, whereas it falls in line with releases of, for example, william basinski, robert lippok, or mitchell akiyama. even though complex electronic manipulations are used, vantaa wants to sound like a piece of nature, resulting in a mixture of techno/dub and organic textures. the tracks oscillate between a decadent, greyish, post-industrial sound cloud and the intimate atmosphere of a vast and desolate finnish landscape. ripatti plays with tiny rhythmic bricks that drift and collapse, but nevertheless create spaces that radiate calmness and tranquilit
