I was listening to some of my old and unfinished tracks and decided to pull this project up and finish it. The basic sketch including melodies are already about five years old but I never managed to write it ready. Today it was possible! Once again it’s more in the IDM side than any other and I hope you catch the mood. Have a listen!
Kuu – Polyethylene

The autumn has finally landed. I’ve been on a bit sensitive mood because the weather has mostly been really beautiful and the latest track I’ve been working with is this one. It’s some sort of combination of downtempo and instrumental rock mostly because of the real live drum sounds, yet my attempt has been to create the feeling of the beauty of the nature with this track.
The title is in finnish and means deserted. It comes from the idea how most of the birds fly to south and some animals fall into hibernation and the nature sort of becomes more deserted during the winter.
Samuel – Autio

Here’s another new track from me. It’s calm and soothing electronica slowly building up before letting go. Influences of house and latin can be heard but mainly it is sourcing from downtempo and oldschool drum machines. Vocal samples are from Outer Limits.
Samuel – Discovering The Universe

I didn’t get the fancy prize, but now twelve of their most favourite remixes are online at Dancefloor Mayhem. You can listen or download my second remix ‘Die Elektronischen Dub’, which got honorable mention, at their website or download both of the remixes here.

I’m sure you remember that I was writing two remixes for the british indie band Kill The Young last March. It now appears that there is no room for them on their records but with their kind permission I can put them available for download here for you to enjoy at least.
Also the Monotonik release of my ‘Pixels ep’ has been postponed to a further date but as far as I know it should come out in the late 2009 or early 2010.
Anyway, here are the Kill The Young remixes.

Today has been a good day, first of all it’s vernal equinox and summer is coming closer and closer every day. Main reason for being happy however is that I’ve got green light from both, Monotonik and Kill The Young because of my work for them.
My ep or mini-lp for the free netlabel Monotonik ended up including total of five new tracks instead of the three that I wrote about in my previous post. This ep will come out later in the spring, stay tuned to this blog and you’ll hear them when it’s due. In the words of Simon Carless, the head of Monotonik:
OK, so I love it, def. want to release it. It might be a month or two… OK? 🙂 It’s really strong work!
I also got first opinions from Kill The Young. For them I have done two remixes, one uptempo dancefloor filler and one easy downtempo pop tune. This is what their manager told me:
The band are REALLY loving your remixes 🙂
Oh happy days!
