Chain Reaction mainstay Sasu Rippati (Vladislav Delay) flips into one of his lesser used pseudonyms Uusitalo for double LP deluge of dubbed-out, Scandinavian glitch in his own unique singular style. Stalking the edge of the dancefloor, these four extended pieces blend stalk metallic clamours, ricocheted percussion and bubbling bass-lines into a minimalistic yet hallucinogenic brew that eschews any notion of traditional time signature and rhythm. Similar to the best of the late 90's / early 00's glitch, it really nails that cold but warm feel, with aesethetically stark production that manages to retain a poignant emotional feel. (Vinyl + Sleeve VG ++).
