An old friend returns to the fold - one of the kahvi success stories. scann-tec, recently added to the ultimae artist roster - has kindly given kahvi a selection of some of his previously unreleased works from over the years. all tracks are recorded between 1999 and 2004 and remastered in 2007. A whole variety of tracks are within, chilled and lounge to ambient and electronic. Something for everybody you might say, this small ep could be classed as a record of the crossover from scann-tecs experimental phase to his classy electronics we know today.
This release is dedicated to Nikita Laptev. Cover artwork by Redscotina
Very chill overall. The only track that didn't seem to belong was "Evacuator"; I found it kinda hard to listen to. "Konstanta" was a little easier, but not as listenable or enjoyable as the other four tracks (1, 2, 4, 6).

Very interesting ep that moves in and out of genres just as quickly as they come, but it "just" works. Scann seems to have mastered not only the ambient world but the downtempo and chilled as well.
Not sure what my favorite is either, but Dakk is quite nice and Konstanta is definitely worth a listen.

Another great ep indeed after kahvi summer break.
Mr Scann-Tec moves himself with wonderful skill around very different genres, it is a true trip.
All the tracks are very interesting, have an unbelievable sound quality and present something particular, so they stay in listener mind.
Personally I don't know what is my favourite, maybe "konstanta", cause that it is easy but at the same time sophisticated...like a painting stroke.
