Boomkat Product Review:
**25 minutes of bleakly melancholic, stoically rhythmic modern Belgian coldwave streaked with field recordings made in Istanbul. RIYL Pseudocode, Thought Broadcast. Edition of 50** "Ripit, a.k.a Nyko Esterle, started his musical activities as a black metal guitar player in 1995. In 1998 he turns into radical electronic, developping a noisy, rythmical and psychedelic sound based on primitive synthesizer use. He evoluates to a more complex form of sound tending to beat micro-surgery and orchestral bombast. He released over 100 records on numerous label such as Idiosyncratics, Angstrom, Bruit De Fond, Zhark, Yb70, Solis Kanones, Rexistenz... and toured several times in North America and Europe. In 2006, he founded with TZII, the protean project Solar Skeletons. In 2007, he founded the concrete Dub/Mutant Rap project FUJAKO with portuguese Dub strategist HHY. Back to a more primal creative technique, his live sets are based today on the extensive use of modular synths, ol'time drum machines and no-input mixers to create a dancy, acid music, plunging the crowd in a magma of electrical textures mixing dance-floor references and magnetic fog. Gnod first met Niko at DNA in Brussells, he was the man behind the desk and a very well dressed gent to boot, since then our paths cross every time we hit Brussells with Niko supplying valuable knowledge on the the Belgian cold wave scene to interested Gnod heads."
