Acoustic Tuesday

dj Iku is a co-host of Acoustic Tuesday club at mbar.

After ten years of dabbling in electronic music dj Iku started to concentrate on the softer side of music finding new enthusiasm in folk-, singer-songwriter-, indie- and even country-music. He appreciates interesting melodies and vocal harmonies combined simple clean sounds and just great songs.

Ilari Tuominen was the kid whose friends relied on him for knowing the name of the artist or the track that was playing. After finding electronic music, the pop-knowledge started to turn into record collecting with techno and dnb. He has been an regular visitor in the electronic music clubs and underground events in Helsinki. Organizing parties and events with Entropy and being a member of the underground sound system called Barely Legal a need for contrast started to emerge.

After an awakening to the folk-influenced indie-sounds of Fleet Foxes the interest in all things but electronic started to become more and more attracting. During the summer of 2010 he made a promise to Acoustic Tuesday hostess Liisa Oikari of Alice Aloof that he'd be able to play at Acoustic Tuesdays for the next summer. After trying it out he became the resident dj from the second year on. Now he's co-hosting the club and constantly tries to look up new interesting stuff to play and new unique acts to book.
