Morphology – Twelve 1/2 LP [F029/FS030]
For more than twelve years, Morphology have been re-writing the rules of electronics. Michael Diekmann and Matti Turunen have melted electro, IDM and techno into their own unique sound. To celebrate their achievements, FireScope has sifted through the impressive discography of this Finnish pairing to bring long out of print tracks back to life. Split over two 2×12 inche releases, Twelve 1 & 2 brings together a decade’s worth of music released between 2009 and 2019, 24 works that traverse genres and labels like Abstract Forms, AC Records, Analogical Force, Central Processing Unit, Cultivated Electronics, diametric., Inner Space Records, Semantica, Stilleben and Vortex Traks.
Morphology – Destroit [AS015]
Finnish twosome Morphology has released some incredible records over the years – mostly of the intergalactic electro time – but we’d wager few are as sonically sparkling, life-affirming or pleasingly melodious as their latest two-tracker. ‘Destroit’, the A-side cut, is simply sublime: a far-sighted, futuristic fusion of crunchy, Chicago-influenced machine drums – all snappy snares, tough kicks and fizzing cymbals arranged into a delicious post-electro rhythm – intergalactic chords and bright, breezy electronic melodies that tap into the sci-fi sounds of purist Motor City techno. The duo opts for a warmer and woozier, acid-flecked sound on flipside ‘Distance’, a classic-sounding chunk of deep ambient techno tailor-made for late nights and early mornings.
Morphology – The Dark Wheel [CE038]
Morphology return to Cultivated Electronics with the follow up to their 2017 EP ‘Mind Stealers’ (CE023). ‘The Dark Wheel EP’ marks their fourth EP for Sync 24’s label. Morphology are Finnish duo Michael Diekmann and Matti Turunen. Formed in 2009, Morphology fuse early electro sounds with haunting melodies to create a deep blend of atmospheric future funk, and their new EP ‘The Dark Wheel’ is no exception, as they deliver four tracks of faultless production technique, warm synths and crisp drum-work.
Morphology – Qualia [EXALT005]
Much talked about project, now release is finally coming into fruition. Morphology approached Exalt with the idea of releasing one of their tracks. Roll forward a year and this 4 track EP comes with 2 brand new original Morphology tracks and stellar remixes from John Shima and B12 legend Steven Rutter.
Morphology – Traveller [FS011]
The Finnish duo Morphology joins FireScope Records for their 10-track ‘Traveller’ LP, a vision of travel to destination unknown. Morphology’s third album continues their intensive deep-space exploration at the intersection of electronic/electro music and scientific discovery. Awash in the beautiful sounds of hardware-derived music direct from Morphology’s command center, the album takes listeners into their skilfully crafted universe. Each track is a new world in itself of crisp beats, deep basslines and melancholic melodies. Interspersing the frenetic pace of hyper-speed travel with ethereal landings, ‘Traveller’ is an intergalactic trip without taking off your headphones.

Sync 24 & Morphology – Low Pass Gateway [CE017]

Written over 3 trips to London in Sync 24’s studio and finished in Finland, the guys serve up 4 tracks of dance floor aimed electro goodness.
VA – Gravitational Push [TEAL009]
Sonic contributions come from two TEAL newcomers A Sagittariun and Matti Turunen, as well as the return of Jared Wilson to the label with a fresh cut of his own. The opening drum break swirls into synth-line and syncopation europhoria on Gravitational Push. The droning bassline cuts a groove in the space-time continuum that’s so deep, it could put some discussions in Geneva to shame. The playful arpeggios of Spice Flow mask the underlying moody pads, resulting in an unusually honest piece of dance music. Flipping the disc reveals a two-track contribution by Matti Turunen. Menacing kicks and synth chirrups begin Substellar Object as a dark chest-rattling piece. However, its sonic frequency emission spectrum eventually widens into a lush composition. When we arrive at the Apoapsis of our sonic orbit, we are met with a stuttering of rhythms and bleeps. An emotional line melody confidently marks the end of our journey.
