https://aleksiperala.bandcamp.com/album/midnight-sun-1   This album deserves its own thread   This is special.   Crazy spastic drum breaks mixed with Colundi microtunings and tribal bongo beats

my girlfriend compared him to these Cafe Del Mar compilations

We're the happiest in the world, too. It's because we socially distance, even without the pandemic.

it's a weird one. like he's working forward and backwards simultaneously.. gonna reach back and connect the streams of colundi and astrobotnia.

i just remember i saw him for that planet mu tour way back w/dmx krew and mike p. at the casbah in san diego.. mike's computer crashed like 30 times. early days of laptop hi jinx. 

 

Very much feels like a colundi x astronobotnia release to me! Good call

Hardest working generative algo out there at the moment 

I’m not a producer. Do you think there is truth to this? How much would you say is generative?

Algorithmic music has been around for ages. I think he sets up a formula for sound palette and roughly how songs will go and basically does a "paint by numbers" with his own material. Personally, I don't have a problem with that since his formula is so enjoyable. It must be very robust, and that's commendable.

These aren't bad, but a lot of the tracks just seem like minor variations on the same concept. I ended up picking a couple of my favorites but i'm kind of running out of steam for buying full Colundi "albums".

Look at the order he put the latest albums in:

More Midnight Sun albums to complete the puzzle? Not caught up with 2B yet, but I've heard 1 and 2A a bunch of times now, plus that 2 hour mix. Incredible how he keeps his sound fresh with the frequency of output. Hardly have time to revisit the older stuff, so whenever I'm in the mood for it (had a few months off with colundi) I can just catch up with just new stuff instead 🙂

Nice one, Aleksi. On the top of his game.

Good catch on the puzzle!  We can probably expect 3A, 3B, 3C next...

Listening to 2B right now for the first time....barely on track 3 but WOW.  holy shit this guy's on FIRE.

As much as I really like a lot of the stuff he's done in the last few years I do wish he'd do a bit more editing. It feels like these four albums could have easily been just one of 100% strong tracks. I now have 24 albums from him in my collection and I'm not sure I have room for very many more.

I think this is one of his best releases though, I am probably going to buy Midnight Sun 1 and leave the rest to not risk getting fatigued by his sound.

      Is anyone aware of the scales used by aleksi perala in his ovuca releases?? In particular the oddish melodic lines in "cow is a mammal" and "Untitled B08 off Onclements"
       
      Im not really a music expert in the regard of scales but maybe someone here might know?? plus info on ovuca and other rephlex artists is very vague i wish they were talked about more very underated imop01 - cow is a mammal.mp3
       
      thanks
