In 2014 Aleksi Perälä (Ovuca, Astrobotnia, Rephlex) initiated the Colundi Sequence project with ‘The Colundi Sequence Level 1’. At the time of writing, the latest installment in the ongoing series currently stands at Level 16. It’s a huge, almost intimidatingly large body of work. For the uninitiated who’ve not been following or obtained any of the very limited physical editions (vinyl, cassette, USB stick, vinyl) or digital downloads, then this compilation is the perfect entry point. Released on the Clone Basement Series label, and presumably curated by Clone bossman Serge alongside Aleksi, they’ve compiled sixteen tracks for the dancefloor/ party inside your mind.

The Colundi sequence is a custom musical scale devised by Aleksi and Rephlex man Grant Wilson-Claridge and consists of “128 resonant frequencies chosen via experimentation and philosophy, each relating to a specific human bio-resonance, or psychology, traditional mysticism or belief, physics, astronomy, maths, chemistry." Yeah, that’s right… you can shove your traditional western scale up yer arse.

Using said scale, Aleksi has created some quality techno. There’s a distinct Braindance / Aphex Twin / Rephlex feel to a few of the cuts. But for most part this is a departure from that sound into some sort of modern hypnosis that utilizes the mesmerising effects of repetition and nuance. Reminiscent in flavour to early minimal, bleeping Sahko works and the stuff it later influenced, like early Sleeparchive tracks, Function’s early Sandwell District releases, and some recent bleepy Jeff Mills stuff. But generally speaking there’s a much prettier feel to a lot of these tunes - with glistening, twinkling chiming melodies. Despite the reduced/ distilled/ minimal sound palette, the Colundi Sequence certainly doesn’t lack vibrancy like so much minimal techno. The power of the scale and the artist's imagination combine to build highly immersive sound worlds that are highly recommended for all bleep worshippers.
