He has been described by The Wire magazine as “electronica’s omni-musician”.
He creates experimental dubby minimalism as Vladislav Delay.
He makes hyper real house as Luomo, collaborating with vocalists such as Cassy, Robert Owens, the Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears, Roisin Murphy and Apparat.
He indulges his choppier techno proclivities as Uusitalo and Sistol.
He is also part of electronic supergroup The Moritz Von Oswald Trio, working alongside the Basic Channel man and Ricardo Villalobos collaborator Max Loderbauer.
He has been remixed by Ricardo Villalobos & Martin Schopf (as RicK Y Martin), Stimming and Ian Pooley.
He is just about to release a new LP on Raster-Noton, Kuopio.
He left Resident Advisor with more questions than answers in their 4.5/5 review of his album of “beautifully deformed pop songs”, Paper Tigers:
- ‘What to make of an interviewee who says ‘I don’t go clubbing’ then comes to Tokyo’s Liquid Room and virtually fucks his laptop in front of everyone?
- What to make of an artist who produces what is regarded as a ruptural, revolutionary album (‘Vocalcity’) and then calls it a ‘failure?’
- What to make of a musician who works in the space between arrhythmia, silence and narcotic mania and then votes Massive Attack’s ‘Blue Lines’ as his desert island album and cites Timbaland and MeShell Ndegeocello as desired collaborators?
He was chosen by Animal Collective to perform at the All Tomorrow's Parties festival that they curated in May 2011.
He is playing an exclusive live show replete with visuals in a special event presented by Shrug and Deep Impressions.
He is Sasu Ripatti is Luomo is Vladislav Delay is Sistol is Uusitalo is 1/3 Moritz Von Oswald Trio.
“I don’t produce music for the clubs,” he says. “It’s just too homogenous and restricted formula with all the rules and expectations, for me it really kills the music… I don’t fully understand why it all has become so boring and uninspiring and why DJs wouldn’t play more interesting music.”
Do not miss a live performance from one of the most uniquely talented, diverse and prolific proponents of electronic music of the past fifteen years.
Support will include:
Thomas William, a recent finalist in FBi Radio’s Northern Lights competition, whose album Deccan Technicolour attracted comparisons to Flying Lotus and was praised for being “at once genuinely eclectic and totally coherent; full of far-out, lopsided beats, glitchy grooves, ingeniously butchered samples, and woozy, psychedelic soundscapes”.
