Product Description

"There's absolute freedom here to do what you think is right," explains Vladislav Delay, referring to his home on Hailuoto, a speck of an island off Finland's northern coast, in the frigid Gulf of Bothnia. "There's no scene to bother me," he adds, "or to remind me of the mostly negative aspects of the music business." Delay has always been a maverick artist. But after relocating to Hailuoto in 2008, what he calls "absolute freedom" has become the de facto muse guiding his music. On 2009's Tummaa, Delay cracked open ambient dub's hermetically sealed aesthetic and ushered in elements of jazz-fusion, free improv and industrial noise. Tummaa is dark, restless and challenging. It's also a stepping stone, one that leads directly to Vladislav Delay Quartet, the musician's most radical statement to date. Recorded at the former Radio Yugoslavia studios in Belgrade, throughout one week last year, Vladislav Delay Quartet is an expansive and multifaceted listening experience. In Delay's scrupulous production, the ensemble's "raw and natural" interaction finds a deep coherence: the articulation of absolute freedom.

Format: Audio CD
Never expect normality with Sasu Ripatti or any of his work.

Ostensibly this looks like a jazz release, given the name 'quartet' etc and his roots in jazz drumming. This initally put me off slightly as I am not a jazz fan but anyone who knows his work will also know his talent for manipulation and creating something different, and I do give things a chance, even if I'm not a fan!

What we have here is different, some scary (probably courtesy of Mika Vainio of Pan Sonic fame) electronic sounds being interspersed with off-kilter jazz movements, be it drums, double-bass, saxophone or cornet.

It all creates a highly effective, sound-creative mix, doing something different with two much-criticised, by some, forms of music, namely electronic sound exploration/ambient and jazz.

It is highly experimental, there is no doubt about this. If you only like your electronica soft and smooth or your jazz toe tapping, then look elsewhere, this will not go down well in the mainstream circles.

However, if you want to experience something different, something that will make you go, 'What is that?!!!!' and are prepared for something new, then give it a go.
