A masterclass in millennial House, Sasu Ripatti aka Vladislav Delay’s debut as Luomo returns for a 20th anniversary edition newly remastered at D&M and packing the deepest bounce per ounce Upon its original release in 2000, ‘Vocalcity’ was a totally unexpected turn from the artist best known as Vladislav Delay, who’d by then established his reputation as a producer of abstract dub techno for Chain Reaction that was ostensibly far removed from deep, vocal-led house music.
