Having made a debut on Mote-Evolver back in March, Finland’s Samuli Kemppi returns with another stunning EP of ultramodern techno on Luke Slater’s imprint. One of the key players in Finland’s techno scene, Samuli Kamppi reputation for making forward-thinking, boundary blurring electronic music that blends the best of the past with cutting edge sounds has seen Samuli appear on labels as diverse as Ovum, Siesta, Komisch, Prologue, Perc Trax and Octopus; illustrating perfectly why Samuli’s style has consistently drawn attention from all corners.
Quantum Mechanic’s leads off this four-track EP. Inspired by the abstract ambience of the late night / early morning club experience, this is a deeply hypnotic voyage through bubbling acid patterns and swaying string melodies.
Complex Numbers retains this feeling of meditative otherworldliness but ups the ante with a challenging arrangement of animated, complex percussive rhythms that run energetically over a solid foundation of throbbing low-frequency bass.
Luke Slater makes an appearance via his Planetary Assault Systems moniker; drawing out a tense and incendiary Dub Edit of Quantum Mechanics that evolves the original into a sparse, futuristic-sounding, acid-soaked mechanical haze.
Linear Function closes out the EP with a poignant yet impactful piece. Playing with the contrast between light and dark, the track transitions from iridescent melodies and ebbing strings to disorientating off-key harmonics and back again.
