Koivikko, Sami – “Salmiakki ” – [Shitkatapult]

Rococo   7/5/2005   A Library, CD

Lobbing another musical salvo in our direction, the Berlin-based Shitkatapult label presents some four-on-the-floor Finnish techno, courtesy of one Sami Koivikko. Named after a popular Finnish brand of schnapps, SALMIAKKI is Koivikko’s debut CD, an album pulsing with the influence of techno’s Detroit pioneers, as well as an occasional nod toward the more dub-infused sounds of Berlin’s Basic Channel, Chain Reaction, et al. Though all tracks here throb with the 4/4 beat, things tend to get a bit warmer and more reflective toward the end. Exactly what you’d want from an album that desires to work its magic on the dancefloor as well as in your armchair.
