Boomkat Product Review:
Fine-grained, acidic and cosmic dub electronics from Finland’s Vesa-Matti Kivioja aka Mineral Waves and the Ljudverket label - RIYL Andreas Tilliander, Vladislav Delay or Automatisme
“Ljudverket’s 11th release is a four-tracker from a man of many sounds and personas, Vesa-Matti Kivioja. Here, operating under his given name, he delivers four tracks of experimental dub and electronica, taking the listener from his/her living room all the way to a dimly lit dance floor in an alien planet, with a sound system capable of producing frequencies way below human hearing and a smoke machine filled with unknown substances.
”These are recycled patterns forming sounds which describe minerals and stones. The use of stone has had a huge impact on the cultural and technological development of the human race. Often composed of grains of minerals, in nature, more than one substitution may be found in the same mineral. It can be made of one element or more elements combined together. A hard, solid, non-metallic, naturally occurring inorganic substance. It is found in a wide variety of geological locations. It’s not made by humans.”
World of dub, universe of electronica, globe of experimentation. Written and produced by Vesa-Matti Kivioja at Seafront Mixing Room, Vaasa, Finland 2018. Mastered and cut at Scape Mastering, Berlin.”
