VLADISLAV DELAY- Ripatti03 - Ripatti
Having walked his own musical path for almost two decades, Sasu Ripatti’s eponymous imprint has already provided a platform for some of the most experimental and daring material of his career to date. Following on from his debut release as Ripatti, and a complex riddim trip in collaboration with Max Loderbauer (NSI., Sun Electric, MvO Trio) as Heisenberg, Ripatti returns with his third release for the label, his first as Vladislav Delay. The A-side is complex and unforgiving, an intense percussive tangle that takes the dub essence of so many classic Vladislav Delay productions and re-assembles them into a frazzled steppers-riddim at double speed, sounding like a footwork variant of his signature dubs. On the flip, it opens with more immediately familiar Delay markers, a dub bassline lures you in before once again re-configuring the template with a jittery percussive tangle that runs amok, with only a careful alignment of snares keeping things from falling off the edge.
