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.

Part 4A is SIIIICK.  Tracks 3 and 4 were immediately refreshing and a great way to start the new year.  Old school Ovuca beats.

Ok, I finally finished listening to part 4A.  WOW.  For those of you saying Aleksi puts out too much stuff and you're gonna skip this one, don't.  It's a new direction for him, yet again.  After crunching my brain, it finally dawned on me by about the end that it is very reminiscent of D'arcangelo ala Broken Toys Corner.  This album is very Rephlex, it's like a mix of the above and classic Ovuca.  Some beautiful melodies on this one.  Favorite track MAY be #7.  It's really hard to say.  This album is a single vibe.  I love this guy.

I’m still digesting the Spectrum stuff. I think these are going to have to be the first new Aleksi releases in a while I’m going to be content to stream and not buy off bandcamp.

And ftr I'm usually these days in camp "it's too much".

I totally get the "it's too much" sentiment, but it's all about what you prioritize.  At the end of the day, good music is good music.  If RDJ put out this much music, I'd listen to all of it also.  For me I get excited every time I see AP put something out...I take a lot of walks and have a lot of music time these days, so I'm always down to hear what he has to say.  These have really been hitting the spot during this extra shitty year.

This series in particular has been awesome. I’m walking less lately (Canadian winter lol) but I’m still trying to make time for all of these!

Oh shit, fair enough buddy! I forget that not everybody has walkable weather.

I’ve got a check my southern California privilege…

I am one of those and dammit, yes, 4 A is a complete diverse album of music. And it is quite good.

Tell me about it…The guy can do so many styles, but this style might be my favorite. He does the dreamscapes thing so well… Getting a lot of Wasted Sunday/Astrobotnia vibes, which is a very good thing!

Well you have piqued my interest there.

I can always count on you to catch my references from like a quarter century ago. You also must be painfully old.

 

(By the way, Sun Electric on bandcamp: https://sunelectric.bandcamp.com/ )

I’m 38...not that old. But yeah, I’m trying to teach my kids about Sun Electric.

That's what the wishlist is for, my man.

      I have the vinyl releases, so don't need these.
       
      PM me and I'll fire them on.
      Edit 1: Oscillation 2 has been taken.
      Edit 2: Both codes are gone.

      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
