Thank You Turku & Diiva UG!

By | Main | No Comments

Late but heartly thank-yous to Turku party people and Diiva UG -posse for making a 3 year birthday party worth remembering and giving me a possibility of being there. The night was fantastic, the cellar absolutely one of the most intimate and friendly venues I’ve witnessed in Finland and Lank and Vertigo very warm and professional hosts with a great music taste. The guys are going to play in Oulu in a month or so, make sure to check them out if you’re in the area. Also thumbs up to Niska who played a rocking warm-up set with a good electro vibe. Very nice guy and a talent to keep an eye on.

I started my Diiva UG set with a bit more progressive and melodic sound which obviously wasn’t the hottest stuff for the cellar-like surroundings and I turned after a track or two to slightly more technoish and rough sound which seemed to be the thing. The crowd was on a birthday party mood and if you could see something through the enormous amount of smoke, they were smiles :) The tracks of the night would be Quivver – Surin (Lutzenkirchen remix), Freeflow 45 – PeakTime and Dennis Sheperd – Infinity. Thank You Turku & Diiva UG!

“Without music life would be a mistake.”
-Nietzsche

29.4.2008 YleX:n Tiistain Tanssi-illan ensimmäisellä tunnilla kuullaan brittiläisen Above&Beyondin haastattelu. Above&Beyond on tämän hetken trance-skenen ykkösnimiä ja maailmanlaajuisesti kysytyimpiä artisteja AnjunaBeats 100 -kokoelma-albumin ilmestymisen myötä.

Haastattelun yhteydessä tulossa myös ensimmäinen Tiistain Tanssi-ilta -skaba tälle vuodelle. Yhdelle kolmeen kysymykseen oikein vastanneelle lähtee himmeä levypaketti tuoretta elektronista musiikkia: Uusi Jori Hulkkosen Errare Machinale Est -albumi, DJ Orkidean Metaverse-albumi nimmareilla ja illan teeman mukaisesti AnjunaBeats 100 -tuplakokkari.

Musapuolella ekalla tunnilla Mango, Chris Barratt, Jaytech, Noel Sanger, Oceanlab ja uutislinkeissä Mixmag, Tiesto, Deadmau5, John Digweed.

Metaverse over and out.

Metaverse - DJ Orkidea Album Release Tour, 2008, front

What a year it has been.

The first ideas of Orkidea’s album release tour were discussed about two years ago between Orkidea and Asaf and the first meetings were held one year ago. After countless emails, discussions, meetings and cups of coffee (and some hard work, too) DJ Orkidea, Misc. Management & Universal Music launched the Metaverse album and the tour in the end of February, 2008.

Yesterday’s sold-out Laserpoint event was the last one of the Metaverse related events and a perfect ending for the tour. The production was top-notch and the atmosphere simply breath-taking. All the respect to Lauri & the Laserpoint possé. (Some Laserpoint on-site interviews available on the voice blogs of Orkidea and me)

Personally the past months have been the most exciting and productive during my whole music career. Organizing the tour has been very busy and extremely stressy, but with the Misc. boys Oded and Asaf and our main man Tapsa we’ve formed a great team sharing all the good and the bad. I could get really emotional about this, but let’s just say they’re 100% professionals with a humble attitude and love for music and life. It’s been a privilege working, learning and sharing the music with people like them.

Also all the sincere thank-yous to all the Metaverse co-promoters, San Mejor, Ismo, Kalle, Jussi, Seb, Flight, Beliar, Exxa & DJShop, Jykä, Miska, Zonex, Ton-E, Toni, Syna & Fiksaatio-possé not to forget thousands of music lovers all over Finland who made the tour worth touring. Share the love :)

Now the tour has ended, but there’s still a lot to do. During the next week I’ll be working on the Metaverse Laserpoint video and the final Metaverse Tour video compilation which compresses the best tour moments to less than two minutes. We will also publish some Metaverse statistics at the same time.

Also, Misc. Management artist roster will see some changes in the near future. We will have a very talented and promising Finnish artist joining the team plus a popular, nice and cool world-class DJ, whose Baltic and Scandinavian performances we will take care of from now on. Exciting times ahead.

Peace,

Juska / Orion

Korg Zero4 review

By | Main | No Comments

The official tour mixer of Metaverse Album Release Tour is Korg Zero4. After a couple of gig experiences with the device, here’s a short review including the pros and cons mainly from the DJ’s point of view. DJ Orkidea has been using the mixer on the Tour for live gigs only, I’m sure we can read a full live performance review later on his website.

OK, the pros first.

+ The EQ system is very good. You can adjust the EQs – use them as different filters, isolators or normal EQs. As normal EQ the touch is very similar to Pioneer’s. If you’re used to DJM-600/800, you won’t notice much difference.

+ All the knobs are illuminated. It doesn’t only look cool but it’s big part of the experience. You never need to guess your mixer settings, even when the club is totally dark. Let this become a standard of all DJ mixers.

+ The master effect channel is different from Pioneer’s, but much better. X and Y settings on each effect and channel-like strenght/volume slider is very easy to use and the user interface is fast to learn. Pre-listening of the effect is as easy as it gets and choosing the effect just goes very intuitively. Loop sampling and running FXs on it is a thing you just never get bored with.

+ And all this is just the Master FX. You can still run effects independently for each channel and adjust the effects from the knobs placed next to the EQ. I didn’t try this out too much, but you can really have cool combinations with channel and master FXs together. The real difference with DJM-600/800 is that the effects on those are mainly annoying and add-ons for the played music when the Korg effects are mainly designed for (live) jamming and creating new soundscapes, loops and re-designing your music.

What about the cons, then? There are small things which I found not that attractive, which hopefully will be re-thought in the future.

– Booth volume is next to the Master volume. Same size knob, same colour. I’m happy it never happened to me while playing (even though I’m turning the Booth Vol knob on and off all the time) that I accidentally would boost Master Vol with 70%, but it really annoys me to worry about that when playing.

– Cue level isn’t loud enough, even when it’s max. I’m not deaf, my hearing is still 100% (lucky me:) and on live playing situations the Cue Vol on Pioneer is normally at 9 or 10 o’clock. Last weekend, when playing in Joensuu, the Cue Vol was all the time on max and I still had to boost the channel EQs to hear the track properly.

– I would love to see the places of Pan and Gain knobs changed. All you people used to play with Pioneer know why.

– The mixer has firewire input which works like charm (Orkidea can tell more about this). But when you plug in your firewire cable, it somehow resets the mixer, gives a short black-out and breaks the music for two seconds. You can guess our reactions when we experienced this for the first time on the live situation in Rovaniemi…

Anyway, the mixer is great and has very big potential of becoming a standard device on the clubs. If you have any questions concerning the user experience, feel free to ask.

Music promoters or criminals?

By | Main | One Comment

Excerpt from Gareth Emery’s latest podcast email:

// Note to labels.

The Gareth Emery Podcast is committed to legitimate dance music sales, which is why we only only play previews of new tracks (typically less than half the running time) – considerably less than would be played in a downloadable DJ mix.

Furthermore, due to our Audiojelly.com affiliation, we ensure that when listeners like what they hear, buying the full track couldn’t be easier.

The question is, why does Gareth’s podcast crew need to write something like that? Have some labels really been stupid enough to threat or even sue a medium which has such an influence on electronic music sales?

I’m waiting for the times when labels and copyright organizations don’t see DJing, podcasting and mixtapes as a threat and loss of income but a HUGE potential for increasing their music sales.

I’m having my 10th anniversary of DJing this year and after all these years of buying and playing the music I really would love to be proud when I’m promoting marginal electronic music rather than being afraid of getting sued because of it.
