A classically-trained hermit who now records ambient techno from inside the Arctic Circle, Ukkonen’s new release for London leftfield label No Pain In Pop is another helping of emotional, enveloping beats, whose two tracks require a full half hour’s attention. ‘Luomos’ begins with shrill but melodic synthesized strings that usher in a 4/4 house rhythm, the bass making everything feel so warm you can imagine its creator using it to stave off frostbite. On the flipside ‘Aikomus’ lets sci-fi synths fumble around a Morse code slab pattern and dub techno beat, hinting at Ukkonen’s past on the Chicago scene. An exotic-sounding techno EP whose vinyl incarnation comes with limited handstamps - don’t miss out.
