The New Noise, October 2018

Ilpo Väisänen (Kuopio,1963, Finlandia) è conosciuto soprattutto per essere stato uno dei due fondatori dei Pan Sonic assieme a Mika Vainio, ma anche per le sue collaborazioni con Bruce Gilbert, Alan Vega, Schneider TM e Oren Ambarchi. Sotto gli alias di Liima, Piiri e I-LP-O In Dub, Väisänen ha creato produzioni molto differenti, ma quella che appare come una costante è la sua passione per il costruire le parti ritmiche, mantenendo tuttavia sempre saldo un approccio concettuale, sperimentale e radicalmente ispirato.

Fact Mag, September 2018

Pan Sonic’s Ilpo Väisänen has announced the release of a new full-length ÄÄNET, the first under his new moniker I-LP-ON. The album is set for release on Editions Mego. The project is a homage to Pan Sonic, the influential electronic outfit he founded alongside Sami Salo and electronic music icon Mika Vainio, who died last year. ÄÄNET channels the industrial, ambient, dub and club-orientated sounds Pan Sonic absorbed over two decades.

Fact Mag, September 2017

Pan Sonic’s Ilpo Väisänen and Dirk Dresselhaus (aka Schneider TM) have announced Entropien I, a new album dedicated to Pan Sonic partner Mika Vainio, who died earlier this year.
Released under the name die ANGEL (an updated name to their Angel project), the album is described as an attempt to “break down the soul of noise” and features multi-instrumentalist Oren Ambarchi on two tracks.

Capital Dub Chapter 1 will be released under Väisänen’s I-LP-O In Dub alias, which he debuted in 2015 with the Communist Dub album, also released on Editions Mego.
The new album was inspired by the first part of Karl Marx’s Capital, and according to the label the LP’s “‘circular riddims’ complement the ebb and flow of the circulation of money and commodities.”

Resident Advisor, July 2016

A rare solo record from the former Pan Sonic member will come through Kvitnu in October. Due out in early October, Syntetisaattori Musiikkia Kuopiosta is, according to the label, "strongly connected to the place where it was written and recorded: Kuopio." It's described as "not a long album," comprising nine "very varied and rather short" tracks connected without gaps, and it'll come on limited-edition 12-inch vinyl in a sleeve with artwork using "special elements," as usual for Kvitnu.

Ilpo Väisänen presents Communist Dub
The I-LP-O In Dub alias finds Väisänen experimenting with spacious dub soundscapes once again, offering the listener the choice "to be pummelled into submission or to reflect on their situation," according to the press release. Despite the abstract nature of this music, the political themes behind Communist Dub are pointed, referencing revolution in the Ukraine and Libya. The label says "Communist Dub is a ruthless criticism of everything existing, but one ultimately tempered by hope."
