“Many musicians defy musical convention. Very few can transport the listener beyond established
boundaries without leaving them feeling lost. For six years, Planet Boelex has been creating music
that is quite simply out of this world. So, it’s playfully fitting that ‘Raja’, this much anticipated EP
from the Finnish musician, is a title that translates as ‘boundary’ or ‘limits’. Over five elegant,
entrancing tracks, ‘Raja’ has the capacity to transport you high above the clouds and hundreds of
leagues below the surface of the ocean. It redefines melody and somehow teases sublime sonic
compositions from static. This is organic electronica, underpinned by glitched beats that could
come from chattering computers abandoned on a scrapheap. Planet Boelex spins on a slower axis
this time around. The results, at times majestic and reflective, mournful and uplifting, bring lasting
rewards to listeners old and new.” — Matt Whyman
