Lauri Paalama, also known as DJ Ateah Fall, has been entertaining house music enthusiasts since the turn of the millennium - early on as a selector at various private parties and after relocating to the heart of Western Finland he quickly gained reputation as a creative and highly skillful DJ who always seems to anticipate what the audience longs to hear next.
Back in 2003 Lauri was appointed as a resident DJ at the renowned Progress club night in Turku and henceforth endeared himself to partygoers at the Western capital. Alongside with his eclectic friends, the RBDJ’s collective, Lauri hosted a weekly tech-house night at the legendary Bar Päiväkoti from 2005 to 2007. During those years he also participated in creating the largest outdoors EDM festival in Finland, Konemetsä Open Air, and as a stage manager was partly responsible for lineups containing artists like Rasmus Hedlund and Brothomstates.
From 2008 onwards, after finding himself in the Finnish capital, Helsinki, Lauri has been showcasing his talents to eager audiences in a series of smaller club nights and private events before arranging some one-off events himself. In February 2012 Lauri gained an opportunity to appear on Sweat Lodge Radio’s online show Jack The Box which was hosted from Yuma Bar in Berlin by Robert M Stanley and and from Helsinki by Misc Management’s DJ Upi. Just recently, Lauri played alongside a Finnish musical legend, always interesting Jimi Tenor, at Contemporary Arts Museum Kiasma in Helsinki. Just to mention some artists who Lauri has had a possibility to play alongside during the years, Mr.A, Jori Hulkkonen, Erkko, Rinneradio, Velcro Fastener, Imatran Voima, DJ Taka, Henrik Löwenhamn, Dana Bergquist...
Lauri is well-versed in the art of weaving tracks into balanced, progressive and thrilling sets and his technical skills leave nothing to be desired. His musical tastes vary from deeper, moodier house tunes, to vocal and more melodic late peak time sets, to more straight-forward techier soundscapes. Depending on the occasion, Lauri will provide the driving soundtrack for a proper night-out or the mellow musical backdrop for some serious relaxation.
