Orion (YleX) – DJ Orion

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 five 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 Berlin, Russia and Spain, headlining 2000 people pool party or -15C outdoor event 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 – Matriarchives IV (Original mix) [Absence Of Facts]


Title: Orion – Matriarchives IV (Original mix) [Absence Of Facts]
Description: Buy: www.aof.fi

ABSENCE OF FACTS – ORION – FACT PATTERN TWO EP – SEDATE / MATRIARCHIVES IV

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.
With more than 22 years in the business, Orion is one of the key figures in the ever vibrant electronic music scene of Finland.

With the second release on Absence of Facts, “Sedate” takes a raw and banging direction while “Matriarchives IV” is the cut with more groove and, arguably, attitude.

Written and produced by Juska Wendland Mastered by Tuomas Salmela / Phonogenic audio Recorded in Helsinki, Finland
