Starting 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.”
Orion’s Absence of Facts presents a fine selection of three techno tracks – rolling percussive works, perfect as tools or for full length plays. Succumb is a peak time roller, Dubcumb is a stripped-down groover and Octahedron brings the funk to heavy-hitting techno.
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.
