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!
