Vladislav Delay has released a new video for ‘Toive’, taken from the recent Tummaa album. The video is directed by Carolina Melis (who has previously made videos for labelmates Efterklang and Colleen) and Lorenzo Sportiello. The video is a journey into a spectacular miniature landscape, with crystals forming and transforming into new substances.

Vladislav Delay is the long-standing alter-ego of Finnish composer Sasu Ripatti, also known for his work as Luomo and Uusitalo. â€˜Toiveâ€™ is taken from Delayâ€™s latest full-length, Tummaa, which essentially features a live trio â€“ Ripatti on percussion (a role he reprises from the Moritz von Oswald Trio), Argentine musician Lucio Capece (http://www.luciocapece.blogspot.com) on clarinet and saxophone, and acclaimed Scottish soundtrack composer and arranger Craig Armstrong on piano and Rhodes (http://www.craigarmstrong.com).
“His most ambitious record to date… Tummaa may well turn out to be Vladislav Delayâ€™s masterpiece”
“This album is immediately compelling and dramaticâ€¦ it’s an empirical fact that this is beautiful music, no matter what your background is”
**** Resident Advisor
“Unexpected, destabilising, powerfully affecting… extraordinary album”
Drowned in Sound
