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
September 13, 2009
This weekend has proven out to be very effective songwriting wise. I’ve had some own time to go into my shell and think about my existence in life itself and it has helped me to write out my feelings in form of this music.
The latest addition to this blog is a groovy house track with latin influences. I haven’t written this kind of music for ages, in fact, some of the older tracks in this genre can now only be heard at my MySpace, the link is in the about section.
Anyway, here it is and I hope you can dance to that 😉
Samuel – Inspira Musica
September 12, 2009
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

Just a couple of minutes before the next day, I’ve now submitted my second remix to the TV Off remix competition. I’ll put both of the tracks online in about two weeks time.

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.
Kill The Young – Vultures (Samuel’s Uptempo Edit)
Kill The Young – Broken Hearted (Samuel’s Downtempo Edit)

I have finished my first remix for the TV OFF remix competition hosted by Dancefloor Mayhem.
I’m saying first because I’m planning to write more if I have the time. The deadline is on 31st of July so I still have some time left. After the competition is over I will also post the track here for downloads.

First of all I’m sorry that I haven’t updated this blog much. I guess I can say that I’ve had some sort of production block mainly caused by my absolutely shitty financial situation lately.
However, I was able to finish a couple of disco tracks that I had started months ago. I am currently looking for labels who still are interested in releasing these tracks. I’m also looking for a capable male singer to re-sing the lyrics in both songs for me for more authentic italo disco feel. So if you have tips of one or both, let me know.
In the meantime, enjoy my latest tracks:
Samuel – Baby Girl
This is the night
when we should meet again,
under the disco lights.
The time is right
and everythings' fine
but you're far away out of my sight.
I'm never ever gonna get you
baby girl, I'll always gonna miss you.
I can't never ever forget you,
because this is our night.
Samuel – Heat Of The Night
Feel the heat of the night tonight,
the night is young.
Baby baby, this time we fight,
against the rising light.
