Mika Vainio: Kilo (CD, Blast First Petite, July 2013)

You kind of know what to expect with a Mika Vainio release: it’s going to be big and dark and heavy and there are going to be giant bassy throbs which well up out of your woofers like some sort of sonic kraken, and in between (especially in the work under his own name) there are going to be ominously quiet bits which give the uneasy feeling that all hell is about to break loose (spoiler alert: it is). I last encountered him in 2012’s Fe3O4 – Magnetite, and there have been two other collaborative releases in the meantime… he’s one of those artists who releases too much for me to keep on top of, but I think this is a good one.

I bought this from Boomkat. They call it Electronic.
