A Piece Of Finland: Vammala

In continuation to my post A Piece Of Finland,



Vammala (a former city in Finland, now a part of Sastamala), an insignificant sparsely populated place in the middle of ass-nowhere where you only expect hicks to drive tractors to town and back and chop wood and kick animals off their way. The last place you expect a unique style of music to be born. Or maybe it's just that why it's so unique 'cos it was born in the middle of damn ass-nowhere. Kinda likeOxnard, California, where Madlib and Kankick are from. A place no-one knows of.


(a few tapes from Vammala cats)

It's not the quantity of artists that come from there, it's the quantity of releases and influence of those artists that do come from there (let's all remember that there are less inhabitants in Finland than in Toronto, Canada).



The "Vammala sound" is very close to nature and that makes it very Finnish, I think. From group names, such as Syvä Vesi (Deep Water) and Forbidden Forest, to song titles can it already be sensed that the music is rooted from depths with reflections from woods, nature, space, dark winter.



Tapes started appearing in early 2000, vast number of releases, in limited pressings. It's like a mob of little elves were making these tapes in the woods, in secret, in respect for the forest, in nature spirit, in funny cone hats.






This far I was really confident that there was a Vammala sound until I realized that the Vammala team is only 3 guys. Ameeba, Microbe & Jalien. And it's mostly Ameeba, actually.

AMEEBA "MONTAKO PUUTA ON METSÄ"
ALBUM OUT THIS MONTH!
TRUE VAMMALA SOUND!

A Piece Of Finland

This is one those things where you find no words to describe the beauty.

Ameeba (Ghetto Styles, Blue Phantoms Network, Syvä Vesi) did this video with Pablo Films of a song from his upcoming album. Featuring 2/3 of the OG crew Ceebrolistics - Mattip & Pijall.

If you've never been to the arctic region or even if you have, this video will make you want to go there. This made a lot of Finns feel homesick. You don't have to understand to lyrics, just dive in to it.

This is the first out of three music vids from the album "Montako Puuta On Metsä?". Album coming out this month. Record release party and Ghetto Styles club opening in Bassment, Helsinki, 11th of May, with Equipto (Bored Stiff), L*Roneous (Dreamweavers), Z-Man (99th Demention), Mike Meezy & True Justice.

Old cassette release by Jun Dax (of Private School/Diminished Fifth/INK..), this came out probably in 1997/1998/1999? Unfortunately I don't have the cover art, tracklist or production credits.. this is one of those Soulseek downloads from many years ago (excuse the low sound quality).
