Hatti Vatti, real name Piotr Kalinski, is one of the Polish underground's most vital figures. He is known for his analogue focused interpretations of an array of sounds, from ambient to footwork. He's been releasing avant-garde electronica on Polish, yet internationally recognized, labels like Absys and Moonshine since 2009 and engaged in collabos with artists like Synkro of Apollo Records fame and Nanook Of The North project alongside composer Stefan WesoÅowski, as featured on Boiler Room. Hatti Vatti is perhaps one of the very few Polish electronic artists gaining even more attention abroad. He toured Northern Hemisphere from Japan and South Korea to Greenland and Iceland where he's a frequent visitor.While working on "SZUM" (noise or hiss in Polish), his first longplay since 2014, Hatti Vatti was invited by Polish National Audiovisual Institute to join RE:VIVE - a project curated by the Netherlands Institute of Sound & Vision that already resulted with a strikingly original LP from Lakker in 2016. Having already been inspired by the pioneering work of artists from the Experimental Studio of the Polish Radio, founded in 1962, as well as by animated film scores of the 60s, 70s and 80s, RE:VIVE presented Hatti Vatti with the unmissable opportunity to delve with unprecedented access into the vast archives of the Polish National Audiovisual Institute in Warsaw. Here, he took the original, sometimes fractured yet melodic compositions he had been working on, and injected with a haunting layer of Iron Curtain era psychedelia. Far beyond a typical 'sampledelic' excursion, SZUM is the sound of a cutting edge electronic craftsman, reimagining his forward thinking work alongside the pioneering ghosts of the past. Album offers a typically bold, retro futuristic exploration of Poland's rich history of sound experimentation, one that simultaneously corresponds closely with contemporary issues and events in the country.
