Ø (Mika Vainio)
Olento

Olento was the third album on Finnish techno institution Sahko from electronics whizz, fellow countryman and one half of Pan Sonic Mika Vainio under his Apple Mac-unfriendly Ø moniker. Unlike his work with his parent band these are more experimental and abstract journeys into ambience but marked as always by the playful minimalism that Vainio was noted for.

Mika Vainio
Reat

Although the Pan Sonic legend Mika Vainio sadly passed away earlier this year, his busy work ethic means that there is still unheard music that has been waiting for release. Reat is just such a thing: eight tracks of Mika’s trademark audio wranglings, with subtle drones and hammering noise power all in the mix. First release in years for the Elektro Music Department label.

Mika Vainio
Lydspor One & Two (Blue TB7 Series)

Taken from the recordings the late Mika Vainio made on his visit to the Moog Sound-lab in 2015, it's Lydspor One & Two. Lydspor is Danish for soundtrack, and here -- available for the first time, on two sides of vinyl and CD edition -- are the tracks documenting Vainio's tinkerings with the prototype Moog Modular System 55, a reverse-engineered edition replicating the 1970s classic synth. A second session was planned but sadly Vainio died before that could happen. The record is thus a fitting memorial to a wonderfully gifted, softly spoken man. On Moog Recordings Library.

ARC 1

A bittersweet release here: the first in a new series of archival releases from the unreleased vaults of Mika Vainio, sadly no longer with us. ARC 1 initiates the series with extracts from a long 1994 ambient piece created for an art-museum-related radio project, under his Ø alias. It’s a 12”, released by Sähkö Recordings, the keepers of the flame.

Ø and Panasonic
Sähkö - The Movie Soundtrack EP

Sähkö The Movie is a 1995 film by Jimi Tenor about the work of the legendary late Mika Vainio, featuring close-up footage of his activities and serving as an incredibly document of an era. This 12” release features tracks taken from the soundtrack, by both main group Pan Sonic (from before the legal trouble when they were still Panasonic) and Mika’s solo, more techno-focused enterprise Ø. Great material.
