Wow, can't believe this is nearly a decade old (the tracks themselves much older)... Uku Kuut has sadly passed on but his legacy shines brightest on this LP. Finally back in print. Our original 2012 Lab review:
First ever full length LP from the good people at PPU. UKU KUUT's "Vision Of Estonia" 7" is an all-time favorite among heads here at the Lab, so we were stoked to see a whole album of material come to fruition. If you dug the 45, you'll love the LP as it is stacked with the same kind of laid back leftfield beats and lost 80's boogie grooves. Here's what Peoples Potential Unlimited had to say about it: "PPU's first long-play LP highlights some of the early beginnings of one of our favorite producers, UKU KUUT. Written and recorded at UKU's home studio in Los Angeles and Stockholm between 1982 & 1989. Some tracks co-written with Maryn E. Coote, famous jazz vocalist who had her beginnings in 1960s Soviet Union. 'That's my MOM' recalls UKU, 'I remember when I was little, sitting under the mixing board at her sessions'. Growing up in studios, UKU's love of music production began early, and over the years he has amassed a vast collection of domestic and soviet electronic gear. In true PPU style this LP is a mix of UKU KUUT's raw cassette demos, forgotten masters and unreleased magic." 2021 white label repress with full pic sleeve. Recommended.
