You may have stumbled across Finnish maverick Ilpo Vaisanen in many different corners of fringe electronics, whether via his work alongside Mika Vainio in Pan Sonic or perhaps when he and Vainio linked up with Alan Vega, or maybe when he was involved in Rude Mechanic. Whatever the case, he's certainly no stranger to Mego, where he appears on the Editions arm with this latest project, Communist Dub. It's a sleek and focus affair that keeps proceedings as stripped back as possible, taking a minimalist approach to electronic dub that makes the likes of Pole sound extraneous. In the fine slithers of echoing percussion and sparse mixes, there is a deadly attention to detail that truly gets under the skin.
