Vladislav Delay Demo(n)tracks
- Words: Cameron Macdonald
- Label: Huume
Vladislav Delay has admitted that he mainly listens to Deee-Lite and Alicia Keys at home these days. Now hear what they possibly influenced. On Demo(n)tracks, Delay concocts digital dub that staggers through Berlin's industrial yards in the morning sun. The continuous mix recalls the DSP test-firings of Anima, yet with sharper emotion and scope. This album seemingly "builds" itself-as the recurring field recordings of saws and jackhammers of "Lokauu" and violent, echoplexed snare eruptions of "Otan Osaa" attest. Geothermal synths that recall Delay's Luomo project also haunt. Despite moments of overproduction, Demo(n)tracks is Delay's most arresting work yet.
