Luomo 'Plus' (Moodmusic Records)

Saturday, 20 December 2014 in Albums

Luomo - PlusA fifth album from Sasu Ripatti, the talented Finnish producer normally known as Luomo – and one that shows he remains a strong, experimental force. 'Plus' shows how an open-minded approach can result in an album that consistently holds the attention, with nine 12” length tracks given plenty of room to blossom. Perhaps the most impressive is 'How You Look', which builds into a classy house number, while 'Happy Strong' adds a strong percussion section. The clever manipulation of the beats in 'Immaculate Motive', meanwhile, works well as the emphasis shifts between on and off the beat – a strangely hypnotic trick. Ripatti has a healthy instinct for switching between vocal and instrumental, and the productions are rock solid but with a slightly cosmic edge – meaning they are never fully predictable. Well worth a listen. (Ben Hogwood) 4 out of 5
