DJ Orion (YleX, Finland)

Orion (YleX)

DJ OrionStarting in the early nineties from the warehouse raves of the industrial city of Tampere, stirring the Northern Finland electronic music scene for over five years, settling down in Helsinki in 2006 and living in Berlin 2011-2013, Orion is still one of the busiest and most relevant DJs in Finland.

Probably the most well known of his decade-long work on Finnish National Radio YleX, Orion hosts channel’s three hour Friday night every week. Next to his work as a DJ and event producer, Orion also runs his own Absence of Facts label.

No matter if it’s about performing live at a sold-out festival or a warehouse party, expanding the possibilities of DJing with the latest technological innovations, hosting an electronic music conference, playing at Ministry of Sound in London or clubs in USA, Germany, Greenland, Russia, Spain etc, headlining New Year’s party for 85000 people, 2000 people pool party or hosting live radio broadcasts from Berlin, after over 20 years in the business it’s all still happening and it’s all labour of love.

“I’ve been lucky enough to have people around me who haven’t been there for money and fame but for the love to music. I guess none of us ever believed how big things could get far in the Finnish outback and I can’t give enough credit to all those who have been supporting and helping with all the countless productions.”

Ülos Ovest – Kotkan Tie 217 (Buru Remix) (Absence Of Facts)


Title: Ülos Ovest – Kotkan Tie 217 (Buru Remix) (Absence Of Facts)
Description: Buy at www.aof.fi

With its roots firmly in the relentless techno of the ’90s, Absence of Facts presents modern analog-inspired tracks that have been handcrafted and carefully selected in Helsinki, Finland.

Ülos Ovest delivers a perfect two-tracker of relentless and warehousey techno. Both tracks have the raw, analog and oldskool approach yet the production is 100% crisp and modern. Joining in the remix duties are two other Finnish heavyweights, Kitkatone and Buru. Bringing melody and edginess to the originals, both artists add their own signature sound to the package.

Written and produced by Ülos Ovest
Remixes written and produced by Buru (Mikko Ihalainen, Ilkka Ihalainen) and Kitkatone (Ilkka Koistinen)
Cover shot at Pispala, Tampere. Photo by Ville Lintusaari
Mastered by Phonogenic Audio
Recorded in Tampere, Finland

Orion – Kuivaamo [Rotraum] – OUT NOW

Orion – Kuivaamo [Rotraum] – OUT NOW

Description: In the end of 2016 I visited a brand new warehouse venue, “Kuivaamo”, in Tampere. It was already hyped to be the most amazing venue seen in Finland for a long while and being also veeery excited of the upcoming gig, I made a kick-ass acid track with the upcoming night in my mind. I played it that night, it worked brilliantly – and now nearly instantly after the gig (1,5 years later;) it sees the light of day officially. “Orion – Kuivaamo” is all about hats-off to the fantastic Tampere promoters and Kuivaamo crew. Let it play!
