Out Now: Aika EP

Order via No Pain In Pop 

“Luomus” takes hold like a golden-era Carl Craig production, all haunting strings and rousing arpeggios with barely a beat in sight.” - Juno

“…intricate, morphing minimal techno patter … deceptively effortless “how’d he do that?” melodic calculations and alternating rhythmic meters that folk love so much about James Holden, AFX, Mount Kimbie.” - Boomkat

Discography:

2013:

The Ancient Tonalities Of… (album)

Cd and 12′ vinyl.

What the critics said about the album:

“…a faithful nod to that bygone era of cerebral dance music when the likes of AFX, Autechre, Carl Craig or Squarepusher were making music rich in complex harmony, soothing melody and intricate rhythms that managed to challenge convention whilst gratifying the masses.“- Boomkat

“Ukkonen retains a knack for delivering moments of disquieting beauty.” - Pitchfork

“Ukkonen has produced another masterpiece…This is Autechre with a human face.”                    AcidTed

“…closest in sound to Aphex Twin at his most cerebral…undeniably beautiful, making for an album of warm, sensuous, electronic bliss.” - Bleep.com

” A Very Good Record” - Clash

“…a bold step forward, slicing up his previously linear structures into something much more abstract. .. fractured rhythms in an Autechre mode going up against the jazzier moods …”     - Juno
