Friday, October 31, 2014

Store booming with new Finnish releases!

We are coming up with a series of CD-R reissues of old goldies. First run is a set of Ameeba's grand work, great music still slept-on by most.
There's a collection of instrumentals from 1999-2001, the Ego7 "Freespaced" CD, that was originally released only on cassette, a very hard-to-find piece. Also the Syvävesi (Microbe & Ameeba) II and III albums – must-haves for all fans of beautiful slow production and nature-sided deeply concentrated Finnish raps. Don't miss out on Ameeba in English – there's the "Introspective" with femcee Minnylee, "Dust Issues", and my personal favorite Ameeba album "Once Said". Invincible beats, underground styles, personal lyrics.
7€ a piece!

The memphis-underground -influenced Finnish producer Khettokasme came out with a second beat-tape, follow-up on his break-through cassette-only album "ADG". This one's titled "They Live" and it's available for preorder 'till the release date Oct 6th. It's the sixth release of the local cassette-label TKKNT tapes, limited to 170 copies. 10€!

Make you don't miss out on the latest releases of the Ghetto Styles young'uns:
DJ Tuleva Työtön released his newest and possibly finest tape "Pilvet" (feat. Moonlit, SQR, Iwere, Betonipossu, Dumb, Pörröne) on the same date that Betonipossu came out with the vinyl-LP version of his "Hyviä Keloja" album, which is a straight-up underground classic! All raps in Finnish.
"Pilvet" (CAS) 8€! "Hyviä Keloja" (LP) 14€!

Latest from another local cassette-label Crummy Kids:
Beautiful album by canadian Hazy Montagne Mystique "Lullaby drone for insomniac people", a title that pretty much describes it. 7€
Currently out of stock with the Neptuges "Majakka", a very limited special collector's box-set cassette. Awaiting restock. 14€

We also got a special shipment from the Finnish DJ & record collector JMP, that included both of his mixtapes that are truly that Ghetto Styles underground sound! Dope and unique selections picked from old hard-to-find North American rarities. Plus he decided to donate all income to our association. These mixtapes are pure gold! Check the tracklists from the store site!
"Tha Good Old Dayz vol.1" (CD) 5€
"Tha Good Old Dayz vol.2" (CAS) 5€

Crazy used records been coming in weekly from a few nameless collectors. They've been selling out quick! Keep up with the updates on the store site and our Facebook page.
More new music from local cats in shortly!

Have a great weekend, folks! Payce!

Radio: Underground Classics Vol. 1 (Sep 2nd, 2014)

We felt that it was time to go back to the roots which Ghetto Tyylit is based upon. The underground sound that we all fell in love with in the 90's, the records for which we turned the world around to find and that greatly inspired us in our own music, and that created joined musical efforts, friendships and links to the rest of the world among fellow music collectors and makers.

Obviously it is impossible to summarize it all in two hours, especially when that time is shared with four guys. The first two years of our radio show we played mostly old stuff, since it was hardly ever played on any radio show on Earth (that I know of). It is definitely important to keep up with new music, but going back 15 or 20 years, it feels like you're telling a story, teaching history.

"Underground" in 2014 is so much different than it was 10-20 years ago. I'm not speaking sound-wise but collector/dj-wise. Internet. It's all there now, accessible by anyone. Before you could hear some artists only if you had their record or if your friend had that record dubbed for you. You don't need to seek for records in order to hear someone's music anymore. I'm not saying that's bad, but it takes off the feeling of exclusiveness a lot. Music just spreads so quickly now – a song/artist that was a rare discovery yesterday, could have 50,000 hits by tomorrow. Vice versa, a cassette of 100 copies of course has a limited spread and stays rare forever.

This show was mad fun though. Of every song we played, there was so much say, such great memories to share, so much emotion to vent. Amusingly and quite predictably, we all brought in a lot of the same records. But it was interesting to hear what song of an album each of picked and why.

Me, Iwere, Ameeba & Dumb played one song in turn, going back-to-back for the two hours. Underground Classics Vol. 2 on the next show.

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.

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!

End of Earth - Tunnel party photography

- 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!
