Legendary producer Vladislav Delay signs to The Leaf Label to release Tummaa, his most organic, acoustic record to date.
Sasu Ripatti’s landmark work as Vladislav Delay for Chain Reaction and Mille Plateaux has influenced an entire generation of electronic musicians, and The Leaf Label are extremely proud to welcome him aboard with this beautiful album.
Tummaa sees him collaborate with celebrated Scottish soundtrack composer Craig Armstrong (on piano and Rhodes) and Argentine saxophonist/clarinetist Lucio Capece, with Ripatti returning to his background as a jazz drummer and percussionist.
Ripatti’s reputation as a genuine musical maverick precedes him, with venerated work as Delay, Luomo, Uusitalo and with partner Antye Greie as AGF/Delay . He has also recently recorded an album for Honest Jon’s as part of the Moritz Von Oswald Trio.
He has collaborated with artists as varied as Black Dice, Massive Attack, Towa Tei, Jake Shears, Robert Owens and Ryuichi Sakamoto Ripatti’s 2008 album as Luomo, Convivial, was a critical and commercial success, and saw interest in his work at an all-time high Vladislav Delay was featured on the cover of The Wire magazine in 2008 European tour dates are being scheduled for the autumn.
