  • Pan Sonic's Ilpo Väisänen's next album is a tribute to his late bandmate Mika Vainio. ÄÄNET is Väisänen's first record under the alias I-LP-ON (most of his recent material has come as I-LP-O In Dub). Inspired by "the life of Pan Sonic," according to the press release, the album synthesizes all the genres that influenced the Finnish duo's music: industrial, ambient, dub and more. It features new compositions from Väisänen embellished by field recordings taken from the 2000 Pan Sonic world tour. The album will come out via Editions Mego on November 9th. Väisänen founded the legendary experimental electronic duo Pan Sonic in the early '90s alongside Mika Vainio, who died last year.
