"Lump is Arttu Snellman from Finland, who first appeared on Sub Static over two years ago, and is not to be confused with the Swiss Lump who recently came up on Mental Groove Ltd. Arttu lives and works in London, where he's employed as a cartoonist at Icepics, a cartoon -- an animation film studio in Soho. Those fairly worn-out attributes like 'minimal' and 'dubby' would definitely match his style of music, but this completely radical, however always humorous way Arttu builds up his tracks and lets them turn deeper and deeper, makes the Lump-sound something very distinctive and almost sounds like an auditory interpretation of cartoons. The digitally-masked, but incredibly organic mass of sound gets ripped open again and again by absurd breaks and unexpected found-footage fragments. Lump is a shy, inconspicuous godfather of minimal electronics, to whom the common and respected techniques of his own genre seem to be completely strange.
