Finnish producer Sasu Ripatti delivers one of his most accessible but satisfying albums to date. There is no shortage of the typical Delay glitchy abstractions, with "Vastaa" providing a snapshot of brittle rhtyhms and spliced, yet dramatic chords, while 'Marsila' wallows in the sensuous, layered ambience that has also become his stock in trade. But Kuopio is also unquestionably groovy, a quality one might not associate with Delay. "Avanne" is like his take on beat down house, its dubby, dusty groove revealing layers of sound, while the wiry rhythms and skittish drums of "Osottavva" and "Hitto" could be his take on Terrence Dixon's pointillist minimal.
