"Kemialliset Ystävät (roughly translated "Chemical Friends") are an expansive, amorphous entity, based largely in Finland, who are orchestrated and directed by one Jan Anderzén. Since Kemialliset's inception in 1995, Jan has collaborated with over 100 musicians (including múm, C Spencer Yeh and Islaja) and has had upwards of 40 recordings released in all manner of formats on a variety of labels across the globe. 'Ullakkopalo', the fifth KY album to be released on Fonal (Jan's primary musical outlet), features fifteen co-collaborators, and is perhaps the most ambitious and fluid Kemialliset Ystävät record to date. Whilst individually marked, these tracks, each with a life of their own, also merge together to form one extensive textural flow. Kemialliset Ystävät may sit comfortably among such experimental luminaries as Black Dice, Oneohtrix Point Never, Animal Collective, and Skaters and their ilk, but the recordings also reflect Jan's geographical location, not to mention his own clearly defined agenda."
