I started to DJ in the year 2000, and actually played my first Helsinki gigs at mbar, where I also began to co-run a Tuesday night club called Freeflow about ten years ago. We streamed every night online. Some time later on the mbar terrace, we had a Sunday club called Gods of Eden, which to my knowledge was the first night dedicated to more obscure side of Balearic stuff in Finland (music you might have heard when you woke up naked on the beach after five days of partying in Ibiza in 1987).
I've played at Siltanen monthly since the opening – usually with DJ Fiskars, with whom I run Wild Combo. Our night is mainly about disco, house and rock records you can dance to, but it's not unusual for us to play music from six decades during the evening.
I was a regular DJ and involved with the promotion of dozens of parties at Nolla (2007–2012) and currently I'm a resident at its successor, Adams. At Adams, I like to play more straightforward sets with emphasis on techno and all things I find futuristic and visionary. Not to mention my love for acid.
In addition to DJing, I take care of online communications and social media at Adams. That's something I've also done for the Turku Modern festival for the last couple of years. Nowadays I'm spending more and more time on working on music of my own – when the time is right, it will see the daylight. Besides the gigs in Helsinki, one of the highlights for me lately was the lengthy set at Berlin's Salon – Zur wilden Renate that went past noon the next day...
