isolla kirkolla / crew striking the helsinki tourist pose
Our guest was my old school homie Sasu Schildt, back in the day known as (MC) Effekt. We hung out a lot and made music together during high school. Sasu made a few solo releases and worked together with the late Freaky Beats crew. He has now been living in the Netherlands for five years, composing jazz, studying music and working on his instrumental projects. This is a trip back to his rap music which was quite dope, extraordinary and emotional.

Incredible freestyles by Taiunta & KVP (Radio: June 10th, 2014)

KVP (Kosovon Vanha Paska) & Taiunta freestyle-rapped back-to-back as Taiunta composed the beat live with a looper device. They truly rocked it with great flow and wise lyrics. We also had interesting discussions during the interviews.

They perform on the streets often but spontaneously. Taiunta is also a professional street musician making a living out of it, which I greatly respect.

Radio: May 13th w/ Ruudolf

from #asfalttisoturi instagram
We were honored to finally have Rudy Kulmala aka "Ruudolf" aka "Asfalttisoturi", as guest.

In Finland, he needs no introduction whether you listen to rap or not. He is a long-term celebrity and a great person. But what a lot of fans might not know is his early career when he still rapped in English, and his early underground hiphop inspirations which are similar to ours. It's what we talked about in the show.

Ruudolf grew up learning from older folks such as Ceebrolistics, Iwere and Tommi Liikka - the same role models I had growing up. From them he adapted ways to make music and was also mail-ordering the same tapes, such as SFSM and JKC, from underground hiphop distributors in the US, such as Atak and Beneath The Surface, back then.

Vähäiset Äänet "Paskaaks Tässä" video from early 2000's
This was also an interesting chance, for me at least, to get to know Rudy in a more personal, calm and perhaps a bit more serious level, than what is used to being seen in his public persona.

Sharing the same background and a lot of musical interests, we should've had Ruudolf as guest a lot earlier. But I'm glad he visited now. Big up, Rudy!

Iwere:
Marc7: Sensational (CD-R)
Doctor Oop: Earth Crisis
3D ft. Lexi: Struggle
Big Tray Deee & Big Petey: Box Full Of Letters

End of Earth - Tunnel party photography

© Topi Vanhatalo
- Maailman Lopun Odottajat @ Vapaan Taiteen Tila, May 7th 2014 -

Me, Eero Pulkkinen (of Running) and Karri Lehtinen organized a concert in a bomb-shelter, a dark deep tunnel beneath a park in Helsinki. There was no entrance fee, no bar, no bouncers, no lights. Just a sound-system, four electronic artists and a DJ.

There was a lot more people than we expected, which was very awesome. Also awesome was that people were there to really listen to the music, like we wished they would - not to get fucked up and wish for something to dance. We wanted to create more an experience than a party/rave, and I'm glad people really felt that and sunk into the mind-state that we tried to generate.

It was a great risk not to have any security to watch over and to let people bring in their own booze. That could end up good or really bad. But I figure when people feel trusted and like they are given something, they behave more respectful and responsible than they would with limited liberties.

Despite being uncertain if it would work, the event turned out to be super rad and successful in terms of lineup, location and crowd. We are grateful!


Lineup:
GRMM$K
ABSNT
Running
RRKK plays Dim Den
DJ Erkko
