Boomkat Product Review:
A new edition of Pan Sonic's immense session recorded in Kiev in 2009 finally available again from Ukranian imprint, Kvitnu.
'Oksastus' (a Finnish word for the grafting of plants) documents Ilpo Väisänen & Mika Vainio's hugely influential Pan Sonic in aktion and the results are intense and rewarding. Recorded by Stanislav Lomakovsky and produced by Dmytro Fedorenko, it's a furnace blast of elemental voltage control, tempering furious noise, concussive kicks and icy electronics with unparalleled vision.
The album has been edited down to eight tracks ranging from five minutes to seventeen in length for an exposition of experimental techno and power noise at its most brutal and visceral. Proper head-wrecking material from two of the best in the game, ever.
