The excellent No Pain In Pop label presents this latest offering from Finnish electronic producer Ukkonen, to put the frankly overused label of IDM on this record just wouldn’t do it justice, as Ukkonen explains, this is a modern electronic take on the history of music theory, going right back to the beginnings of music as we know it, before most of the notation and instruments we know today were even invented.

This album takes the idea of ancient classical styles such as early vocal music and the ars nova period of the late middle ages and reworks it into a more modern Aphex/Squarepusher type of production. Ukkonen offers up a relatively accessible sound of laid back ambient house, lush plonky synths and chilled beats make for a pretty easy listen, like all the classic ambient dance artists of the last 20-odd years, The Black Dog, Plaid, Mu-Ziq, LFO and Aphex Twin but with the underlying theme of tradition and historical notation.
