Behind the radiators

Label: Touch

Format: Vinyl 7”

Out of stock

7' vinyl only. Limited edition. Artwork and photography by Jon Wozencroft. Cut by Jason at Transition. Locked grooves. Mika Vainio continues the series of Touch Sevens, 7' vinyl-only releases, with this stunning record. The crackle... The fire of the analogue... Mika Vainio is the most adept at using crackle as a voice. Sound artists have used crackle ever since the reality of digital audio hit home, however there's a big difference between this and how other practitioners use it... Here are two tracks recorded by Mika in Berlin this February. He has released 3 solo albums for Touch under his own name (Onko, 1997; Kajo, 2000 and In the Land of the blind, One-Eyed is King, 2003). He is perhaps best known as part of the Finnish duo, Pan Sonic, and he also releases work as for Finnish label, Skhö Recordings.
