Planet Boelex - Suunta

in case you dont keep up with the Kahvi netlabel, the newest release is an absolute must-have. finnish producer planet boelex is the master of warmly chilled electronic ambient idm, and each release keeps getting better and better. the usual planet boelex devices are deftly employed here - precisely syncopated percussion, endlessly deep bass, wandering warbling pads, delay-soaked glitchy fx and soaring leads, along with a new element - a track featuring vocals from chillout songwriter Krister Linder. also featured in this release is hi-resolution HD 16x9 artwork by a certain designer..
i dont think i am exaggerating in saying, this is so far the best netaudio release of 2007. i dont use such superlatives often, but i have listened to this release practically nonstop since it appeared, and it simply keeps getting better and better. an absolute masterpiece of intelligent electronica.

planet boelex is also offering these tracks as lossless flac downloads. i didnt think that it would be a big difference from the already high quality 320kbps mp3s, but listening to the lossless audio files truly gives that extra special sparkle, tickling the ears in an ever so pleasing way...
