AllMusic Review by

Antti Rannisto's debut recording for 12k is an anomaly in the recent string of poignant, calm meditations from the label, wasting no time in declaring its different intent courtesy of a two-part, four-minute sine-tone suite (all 11 tracks are untitled) that harks back to the early years of electronic experimentation with analog synthesizers. From there, it's a wild mishmash of influences and sounds (check the shout-out to his fellow countryman Vladislav Delay's Multila on track three) ranging from hip-hop and IDM to the experimental forefathers who preceded him. The most amazing nugget on this disc is track nine, which sounds like a classic Chicago acid track thrown in a washing machine with some of the Raster-Noton camp's more beat-friendly compositions. A solid if erratic full-length that shows Rannisto's versatility and refusal to be pigeonholed into one particular sound or style. Kudos to 12k for taking similar risks.
