Review

Although the finished product of Kantamoinen was officially released on Sahko back in 2005, Mika Vainio produced these tracks under the O moniker between 1999 and 2004. The music was recorded between Barcelona, Vienna and Berlin, but the sound is very much Vainio's own Finnish strain of noisy ambient. Boomkat has done us a real favour with this vinyl reissue, an album that has been on our wishlist for a long time and one that has pretty much single-handedly constructed the contemporary leftfield sound. That's because nothing is certain on this LP, no sounds are concrete or stable, but rather continuously morphing and evolving into otherworldly shapes. It's not really ambient, it's too delicate for noise, and it definitely isn't techno. It sits somewhere in between, in the vast and cavernous ocean that only Mika Vainio knows how to stir up. Highly recommended.
