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.

So none of this is on the releases - Aleksi! Please can we have download? Also FI3AC2040090 (at around 28:30) breaks into some hot funk that reminds me a whole lot of some of the work Ken Ishii was doing around '96 (like Circular Motion) and it's fucking great.

So, Is "Northern Lights" the next album/series after "Midnight Sun"?

I'm just an idiot, sorry. Just got excited at that track and was looking for it.

I still want a download though!

so. is there 1 or 5 more "midnight sun" volumes pending?...

Seeing at this new one is "2A" and we haven't hit the FI3AC2040000's yet, i'm guessing there's a few more to come  : )

I would love to see an interview with Aleksi where he dives into a little of his creative process, that is more than "colundi consciousness mumbo jumbo"...

even if it's just "Level 9 was exploring _____ colundi frequencies"

"On Oscillations I was working with _______ BPMs and the interplay of________"

"Midnight Sun 1 is ________ . 2A focuses on_______ while 2B was more focused on________.It's such a sprawling project because I'm exploring all aspects of________"

As prolific as he is, I understand that music media isn't going to profile every release, but it needs

something for the listener to latch onto, because as much as I love it, there is a "sameness" to a lot of it. I, for one, would really appreciate it.

i agree. that specific track is fucking fire and a newish sound for aleksi

hello Doc

which track are you referring to? 

Mr Perala is currently uploading these albums to Spotify and I'm intrigued which specific tunes I should listen to.

If anyone can post up some recommendations it would be appreciated 🍷

(I'm currently listening to 4A)

I don't get Aleksi's stuff really.. Most is just percousions with a fast tempo and different pitches and LFO's. 
Sounds like when Im jaming on my Machinedrum. 

I miss old Ovuca stuff

And now 5A. Surely he’s taking the piss at this point. I’m sorry but the rate he’s dumping out new material now just kills my enthusiasm for his work in general.

      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
