Boomkat Product Review:
The long awaited Sleeparchive doublepack, 6 tracks of precision bleepage on an utterly classic tip. Nice to see things come full circle - Sleeparchive quietly reminding people last year that long before the modern dancefloor kerfuffle known as Minimal came into fashion we had a much more refined, restrained form of Minimnalism - spearheaded by Mika Vainio and the Sahko imprint, Richie Hawtin's earliest Plastikman excursions and Rob Hood's more controlled emissions. Since then all hell has broken loose, Hawtin's DE9 mix bringing both Sleeparchive and Sahko to much wider attention, with both labels barely managing to keep up with demand from a now exponentially wider, drooling audience. "Radio Transmission" is the fullest Sleeparchive treatment to date, 12 tracks of bleep/bass/reduction genius that somehow build and diversify from the first four EP's on the label, moments of undulating abstraction breaking the current, with even a moment or two's recollection of Sleeparchive's earlier fascination with speech synthesis under his Skanfrom moniker.
