Finlander Sasu Ripatti (aka Vladislav Delay, aka Luomo, aka Uusitalo, aka Bright People) is dusting off one of his lesser known aliases. After his last work as Vladislav Delay , “Tummaa” (Leaf, 2009), an album full of jazzy statements via a collaboration with Craig Armstrong and Lucio Capece, Ripatti plans to release two new recordings as Sistol , an alter ego already introduced 11 years ago in one of his first releases.
The first of the “new” material will be available on July 27th on Halo Cyon, a Phthalo sub label, and it will be a double album where you will find the re-mastered version that first Sistol album and a second CD of remixes by Falty DL, Alva Noto, Duran Duran Duran o Yke Yard. The second release, titled “On the Bright Side”, packs a total of eight new tracks written during the past year. Sistol - “Sistol” CD1: Remastered Reissue 01. Hajotus 02. Keno 03. Hac 04. Haaska 05.
