Terminal pres. Jaakko Eino Kalevi (FIN)

Jaakko Eino Kalevi (FIN)

Before his music career came together, you might have found Finnish electronic musician Jaakko Eino Kalevi – a dreamy sprite with chest-length strawberry blonde hair and a gaze like a pair of moonbeams – spending his days driving a tram around his adopted hometown of Helsinki. Knowledge of his day job might be a key to understanding the drifting spaciousness and fluid sense of his music. But really, it’s hard to shake the impression Kalevi is one of those figures – like, say, Sébastien Tellier – who appears born into his role: a dashing synth-pop troubadour of Platonic perfection.

By his own account, Kalevi grew up on the progressive metal of Dream Theater and cut his teeth making hip-hop beats before refining his current style: a pastel-shaded blend of saxophone-stoked soft rock, electronic pop, and disco that feels at least as Gallic as it does Scandinavian, romantic of heart and melancholic in disposition. The prevailing mood of his music – louche, elegant, a little hazy around the edges – belies a forensic attention to detail that Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoît Dunckel of Air, or, before that, finicky studiohounds like Steely Dan brought to the recording process. It’s unclear if Jaakko Eino Kalevi was made at huge expense, or scraped together for loose change, but with a mix job by Nicolas Vernhes everything feels just so, drums punchy and mechanistic, guitars luxuriant in their heady sustain.

In this age of constant connectivity, switching off has become one of the great luxuries of modern life, and it’s one of the reasons Jaakko Eino Kalevi has called his album ‘Out of Touch’. He explores what he calls this ‘essential, blissed out’ state on his second album for Domino – his first since 2015’s self-titled release – as he meditates, in classic Jaakko fashion, on the merry-go-round of the daily grind.

Commodo* (DEEP MEDi / UK)

An artist with minimal online presence and who keeps himself to himself, Commodo is one of an increasingly rare few who make waves through the strength of their music alone. He builds bass-focused beats with soul and substance that never perpetuate a formula, distancing himself from contemporaries with ingenious sampling and sound design influenced by his long-time affinity with the vibrancy of hip-hop.

Regardless of whether it’s the tough, dread-pressurised bassweight of his dancefloor-leaning productions or the tonally rich and immersive qualities of his more cerebral work, his scrupulous studio techniques are evidenced by the resounding freshness and longevity of his tracks both new and old.

His inherently unique and accomplished production style earned him recognition right from the outset of his ascendancy and garnered early attention from a host of key figures within the dubstep community; finding a natural home for his music at the bastion of low frequency excellence, Deep Medi Musik.

Delir ( SubGiurgiu, Uzina Dub )
Delir first started DJing following the sounds of drum and bass. In 2014, he decides to focus his view on dubstep & bass music by taking part in the organization of SubGiurgiu, a self-sustained bass festival located at the edge of the Danube river in Giurgiu, and played there each year from 2015 to 2018.
Member of SubGiurgiu & Uzina Dub (a community meant to promote dubstep & bass music), he took part and played at almost all of their events, streams & parties since 2015. His most common approach is deep & dark/minimal.

Loose ( SubGiurgiu )
Coming from a background of hip hop, reggae and bass music, Loose and dubstep fell in love with each other over 10 years ago. The duo is still waiting for the government to pass a bill in order to get married legally. Meanwhile, Loose has started getting some on the side with some other bpm ranges. To be continued.
