Best known as one-half of Pan Sonic (Blast First), MikaVainio is from Finland
and now lives in Berlin.
“Probably Vainio’s most accomplished work to date, a series
of rich soundscapes whose beauty is always
on the edge of darkness. (...)
Not wanting to bang a drum, anyone who has
been invigorated by the work of
Mika and Ilpo in Pan Sonic will be keen to hear these more pastoral takes
on their more propulsive sound in
places, being reminiscent of Artemyev’s recordings for Tarkovsky
films, in others, suggesting sound
recordings of frogs and insect life”.
