Title: Suitable For A Desire To Share
Catalog #: mtk181
Release Date: 2007/03/11
We’re delighted to present a second release from Finnish graphic artist and musician Flutterspot, following the ‘Labmat EP’ back in early 2006, and this time round, ‘Suitable For A Desire To Share’ is almost 40 minutes of lushly layered electronic music to die for – or at least freeze a little bit.
We start off with the oddly titled ‘Small, Brightly Coloured, Highly Arboreal’, which hops up into the trees for some almost Boards Of Canada-esque loping beats and marvellously complex electronic beats. From there on, there’s just all kinds of mature fun to be had, with ‘Cumulonimbus Arcus’ looping all over the place in delight.
What else? Blimey, ‘A Minor Lovesong’ is all guitars and style and ‘Hover In Mid-Air’ is semi-ambient bliss, and this all adds up to one of the most accomplished Monotonik releases we’ve had in some time – so everyone say thank you to the mysterious Flutterspot, eh?

Catalog #: mtk172
Release Date: 2006/10/01
This time, a Monotonik debut for Finnish graphic artist and musician Flutterspot, and pretty much his first music release anywhere, with the gorgeous electronic tones of ‘Labmat’.
What do we like about this? Well, for starters, ‘Daily Sway Of Everything (That You Touch)’ is satisfyingly chunky, before ‘Sky So My’ segues into some smartly rotating beats. Then, there’s ‘Liihko Hymn’, which is layers and layers of sound in an almost shoegaze fashion, but with firm rhythms layered on top, before ‘World End Ballad’ brings things to a close in an unnaturally fluid manner.
And why do we like this? Because it’s the kind of gorgeous music that doesn’t get played in enough places, but we’re perfectly positioned to bring to our loving audience via the handy method of Creative Commons-licensed free electronic distribution. Flutterspot’s music deserves to flutter around the world – only you can make it happen.
