A dosage of spacious bass lines, technoid beats, baby-mobile anthems, mystery-theater themes, complex digital fractals and a calm that could only come from the heart leaves Ekko Location in its own stratosphere.
[Release page] With a small handful of classic releases over the years (Toytronic, Rednetic and Boltfish had the pleasure of releasing these gems), Harmi Palda (aka Infinite Scale) always seems to find just enough extra juice to squeeze from his sound machines. A dosage of spacious bass lines, technoid beats, baby-mobile anthems, mystery-theater themes, complex digital artifacts and a calm that could only come from the heart leaves Ekko Location in its own stratosphere. Even with continual listens there’s more to describe; acidic bleeps and dub-laden minimalism trickles from the edges, and yet the consistency of Ekko Location remains constant.
The myriad of flickering transmissions aside, Infinite Scale gently massages the outer limits of decadent melodies and brings with him a refinement of ambience. But just as you snuggle up with these organic electronic roots comes a feeling of curiosity. Strangely isolated emotions are transported through dark valleys of synth-based fluctuations and cooled atmospheric bending. It is within this curiosity that Ekko Location begins to expand. Its ability to migrate a plethora of electronics into one cohesive flow is testament to the artists’ ability to inspire. Perhaps a subliminal sonar effect was used during the recording process, something that wouldn’t be surprising given the title and execution of these scrumptious audio morsels. Ekko Location is a welcomed retreat; sonic shapes flex and gravitate in all directions.
Though a lot more could be described, a short-novel might get close to a better explanation, Infinite Scale delivers an exciting new trajectory of subdued electronics for this decade. So rather than let words describe the sounds burred in this spherical assortment, have a listen and discover for yourself how Ekko Location blurs the senses.
