Boomkat Product Review:
Sasu Ripatti's second 'Hide Behind the Silence' EP is the most subtle and experimental material we've heard from the Vladislav Delay project in years.
The first installment marked a return to the hazy minimalism of Ripatti's legendary 'Anima' and its predecessors, and the second shows an even greater desire for the Finnish producer to lurch into blurred industrial creaking and upended rhythmic complexity. 'Reflections On The Failure' sounds as if it's about to explode into a flurry of beats at any moment, but retains its composure, rattling and popping like a steam train tugging a cargo of live electrical wiring. The core of the track is a lolloping kick drum, but Ripatti surrounds his rhythms with layers of feedback and grit, pushing them into the background with so much force it disappears almost entirely.
'No More Times' is better, growing slowly from an alarm-like pulse into stormy electrical noise and overlaying polyrhythms that grow into a beat that's fast, but so minimized that it sounds like a washing machine wobbling itself across a nearby room. And that's a good thing.
