5.0 out of 5 stars Dense and beautiful June 6, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Vladislav Delay has been making music for several years but only really has made an impact on the music scene in recent months. "Multila" is perhaps his finest recording yet in that it bridges the gap between stereotypical minimal techno and pure, organic ambience. The majority of the tracks on the album are filled with a rumbling, edgy undercurrent, lending both an ominous and sometimes restful ambience to the tracks. Many of them percolate into rhythmic conversation as they progress, with "Huone" serving as the centerpiece of the album. This twenty-odd minute track consists of clicky beats, stuttering rhythmic quirks and additive sounds and glitches thrown in. The other tracks are the real highlights, though, with their thick, layered textures of sound almost overpowering any rhythmic convention.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent album by a man with a strange name October 27, 2001
Format:Audio CD
There's not much to say. It's his best album.
Vladislav Delay moonlights as a semi-famous dj in Europe, and then spends his sunlight hours as an obscure minimalist with this peculiar name of his. I'm not a big fan of his house music, which is, like most house, bluntly predictable.
But I'm not so much a fan of his album Anima either, which is his best known. Anima is really wishy-washy, despite its awesome cover art.
But here, on Mutila, he mixes his best house abilities, with his more adventurous interests in minimalist abstraction (whatever that might be, exactly) and the glitch movement of electronic.
Delay is someone whose work I like to follow, 'cause he makes such spanky sounds, but it's just that his stuff is expensive here in Canada, and you have to be a bit picky.

5.0 out of 5 stars Raw - oh so RAW! July 16, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I absolutely cannot agree with the "too messy" review here - this is definitely a younger, less developed Delay at work, but already the truely original, seemingly random sample-madness is in evidence. I would say though, that in Multila, more emphasis is being placed upon texture; there's less of the field recordings and found sounds to be, err... found, here. The thick, crunchy percussion/clickage, from the techno-inclined Huone, to the glitch-dub of... most of the rest of the disc, and with one or two sort-of beatless tracks to chill with, are all far less "busy" than material on his newer releases.
So where does my gushing over the "rawness" come from, then? Well, it sounds like Delay shoved the whole lot through a well-worn 70s open-reel tape recorder - lending a warm, but slightly muddy feel to the album. It's sounds slightly odd at first, but you'll soon get used to it. IMHO it's part of Multila's charm.
I'm not sure if I could place this album "better" or "worse" than his others, but it's not a bad place to start. I tend to listen to Entain the most though...

5.0 out of 5 stars utterly amazing May 8, 2006
Format:Audio CD
the world of techno and dance music has splintered wildly since it's brief flirtation with mainstream popularity in the early 90's. while the post-grunge and hip hop backlash tookover american airwaves, europeans (and a few americans) went underground and created some truly amazing music. multila is a prime example. shifting synths and glitching beats swallow you whole over the course of seven tracks--in 72 minutes. when it's all over you feel relaxed and calm, though you may not remember what happened. if you want ambient sounds to fill the space while you work or converse, put this on. if you want something to examine and dissect, put this on. if you want your headphones filled with softly moving sounds that lull you to sleep on a lazy summer afternoon, put this on. if you want rock or hip hop or cookie-cutter pop, why are you even reading reviews of this album? buy it and wash all that other junk away. this album could change your life.

note: listen to this before approaching delay's release 'anima'. they are quite different beasts, and the latter hardly prepares you for the glory of 'multila'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Closer to the Shadows of Vladislav Delay's Art July 14, 2008
By Phil
Format:Audio CD
Multila, in bringing together Vladislav Delay's early vinyl releases on Berlin's Chain Reaction label, focuses on the dense, murky gritswirls and ghost voice traces that underlie this subtle artist's other works. These tracks fit well within the label's foggy ethos, while displaying Delay's unique granular dubspace- not so much multilayered as horizontally dense. The massive prismatic techno epic Huone is sandwiched between hazy tracks awash with stray bit matter and social traces on the edge of audiblity, reaching out to you like the fading recollections of people in your past, and the wonderfully uncertain approach of those to come.
