DJ Tytti started with Jamaican rythms 2001, with the name pikkuT. Now Tytti plays three decades worth of electrofunk, with the touch of new scandinavian influences. Her distinctive siren call also is coloured by an abundance of soulful disco records.
Tytti Viljanen puts her faith in Jamaican sounds. At first DJ Tytti quite persistently played reggae, dancehall, and little else. After a year’s break, though, Tytti found herself incorporating more soul and electronica in her DJ sets. Still, her favorite format is the basic form of reggae, the 7-inch vinyl single.
Viljanen started out five years ago by spinning in home parties and speakeasies as well as at reggae clubs in Tampere. Now Tytti’s playing field includes venues such as Helsinki’s Mbar and Om’pu, at both of which she’s a regular. In addition to that, she hosts the Bassoradio’s show Sunnuntain siskot (Sunday’s sisters) a few times a month. Tytti, who makes the flyers and posters for her her shows herself, has recently branched out into VJing as well. Her day job includes creating art, illustrations and animation.
DJ Tytti doesn’t stress about shows too much. “I pack my bags, go through my records and maybe grab a cup of good tea. Then I kiss my son Onni good night and head out for the night shift,” Tytti elaborates on her preparation routine.
