Thibaut Devigne Very smooth techno beats on soft ambiant synths, for super progressive tracks, what is not to love on this EP?

Moth Korey amidst the elusive patterns & time signature trickery, the intriguing backbone motifs, subtle polyrhythms & midrange grooves are delivered with lucid confidence.

the icy yet intimate depths exhude an outside awareness of jazz and experimentalism.

understated, elegant, but never simple. Favorite track: Thrym.

Tropylium A groove in a class of its own… pure hypnosis.

Moni Magnificently deep and undulating as it evolves over 17 minutes. Other tracks are similarly brilliant tech gems. Favorite track: Erriapo.

about

Who is Ukkonen?

Apparently an unnamed producer from within the darkest depths of the Arctic circle.

What is he doing?

Some of the most interesting techno music we've heard in years.

What's perhaps surprising is that he admits to having no interest or knowledge of the rich history of techno, coming instead from a background steeped in classical composition, jazz and art rock. Which is perhaps how he's managed to corner such a unique take on the sound – by coming to it as a true outsider, just like the early pioneers.

Subtle polyrhythms pervade each piece – on first listen you think it's 4/4... but is it? Does it even stick to a time signature? This is music of extreme depth that rewards immersive and repeated listening, whilst it could also find favour with the more discerning dancefloor.

“Kaksi” opened label boss Kone-R's recent mix for Fabric's website ahead of his DJ slot there in February and has already started turning heads.

With an album in the pipeline, expect more surprises from this Arctic enigma later this year.
