Finnish electronic composer Sasu Ripatti’s many pseudonyms are really more like personae; Luomo, Uusitalo, Sistol, Conoco, and Vladislav Delay may be five fingers of the same hand, but they couldn’t be more distinct from each other – though, in this case, “distinct’’ might be the wrong word.
In addition he has collaborated with and worked for a wide range of artists ranging from Scissor Sisters and Craig Armstrong to Massive Attack. While his side-projects and remixes are there to flirt with more stable rhythms and dancefloor institutions, his main love as well as his background is in experimenting with different kind of sounds and rhythms; a quest to find some music not heard yet.
“Vantaa’’ applies this approach to ambient ends – scattering vague melodies through hazy prisms and flinging stray rhythms across a vast melting grid. Discover this really cool unofficial video by TheNov29Films.
