Boomkat Product Review:
With an artist name like v4w.enko, this was never likely to be a light-hearted affair. In fact Harmonic Ratio is a rather intense listening experience, akin to the finely tuned scalpel-noise incisions of Ryoji Ikeda. As is the case with extreme digital noise generators like Ikeda or the Mego crew, this is uncompromising material, and yet there are plenty of moments of outright beauty, such as the ear-pleasing pinhead-pirouetting frequencies of 'Opus28' or the shiny surface drones of 'lo_n_l'. Excellent.
