Infinite Scale: Ekko Location

Ecoshock Recordings 2011
10 Tracks. 50mins46secs

A self-professed purveyor of ‘beautiful electronic cinematic melodies’, Infinite Scale is the solo project of musician, producer and DJ Harmi Palda. Originally set up in 1997, Infinite Scale has since had a string of releases on Toytronic, Boltfish and Rednetic, yet Ekko Location is only his second full length record, and the follow up to Ad Infinitum, published two years ago on Rednetic.

Very much like its predecessor, Ekko Location is a fine example of edgy melodic electronica, but here, Palda moves closer to the classic sound of Detroit, especially in the first half of the album, where tracks such as Out Of The Blue, Captured or Mobile Lives denote a move toward much more upbeat and linear territories than previously heard from Infinite Scale.

In the twelve years since the publication of his debut EP, Infinite Scale’s Harmi Palda has been pretty frugal with releases under this particular guise, only issuing a trickle of tracks on EPs and compilations through imprints such as Toytronic, Boltfish or Rednetic.

On his debut album, Palda develops further his particular blend of electronic music, using beautifully polished and gentle soundscapes and bending them into remarkably effective melodies. Continue Reading »

In the last five years, London-based imprint Rednetic have delivered a steady stream of elegant electronic records. While the label’s scope has considerably expanded over the years, the focus has largely remained on classic electronica. The label was set up in 2002 by Mark Streatfield and Joseph Auer, and the first release was Streatfield’s debut album as Zainetica, Escaping Dust. Since, Auer, who had then moved from London to Tokyo, released the Kyoto Tokyo 2001 EP, and further releases by Utility Player, The Vizier Of Damascus, Inigo Kennedy, Tommy Bass and Boltfish co-founders Will ‘Cheju’ Bolton and Murray ‘Mint’ Fisher, amongst others, have firmly established the label as one of London’s best imprints.
