Best known as one-half of Pan Sonic (Blast First), MikaVainio is from Finland and now lives in Berlin.

“Probably Vainio’s most accomplished work to date, a series of rich soundscapes whose beauty is always on the edge of darkness. (...)

Not wanting to bang a drum, anyone who has been invigorated by the work of Mika and Ilpo in Pan Sonic will be keen to hear these more pastoral takes on their more propulsive sound in places, being reminiscent of Artemyev’s recordings for Tarkovsky films, in others, suggesting sound recordings of frogs and insect life”.
