"Vladislav Delay is all beats. The prolific Finnish producer (who also goes by the names Sistol, Conoco, Uusitalo and, most famously, Luomo) started off as a jazz percussionist before exchanging his kits for electronic gear. Once inside the world of machine music, he dove into the depths of the Chain Reaction school of ambient "heroin house", before swimming towards minimal, glitchy clicks + cuts.
Alghough known for moodier soundscapes under the Delay name, he gained far more recognition with the robust vocal house stylings of Luomo (particularly on the recently reissued classic Vocalcity album). "Delay and Luomo are like night and day," he says, but the two aliases will play tag team starting next week, when the man sets out on a short globetrotting tour. It begins next Wednesday in Los Angeles, with a Scandinavian blowout show also featuring Swedish glitch god Andreas Tilliander. Dates:
11-02 Los Angeles, CA - The Fold in King King (as Luomo) *
