Ten years ago a friend of mine termed Euro dance music "Czechno" and that was the word that came to mind when I heard the first notes of this CD from Finn Sami Koivikko. It's got the beat, a little on the fast side, thumping club music.
1.old drum machine hi hat hits and kick. cheap generic synth
2.some dissonant notes, a little buzziness
+3.sparse bloopy intro, takes a minute for beat to start, on the ambient side
+4.nice echo. also on the ambient side, fuller sound than 3
5.medium chill
6.mostly a steady beat with a quiet noises, melody starts halfway through
7.beats trip a little near end
+8.odd bass progression, harkens back to better 80s music
9.nonsensical notes
10.some backwards synth over the bass
