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.”

Hitze 10967 is a two-tracker with attitude from Absence of Facts main man Orion. The main track is a hypnotic groover with lively drum programming and the second track, “Point of Fact” takes a more housey route.

Through the lens

Tässä se on! Absence of Facts -lafkan kakkosvinyyli – “Cari Lekebusch & Orion – Foreign Shapes”. Sulkeuduttiin viikonlopuksi Carin kanssa studioon ja saatiin kasaan kolme todella groovaavaa hypnoottista teknoraitaa, joista kaksi on vinyylillä ja kolmas tarjolla diginä. Turha kai sanoakaan kuinka inspiroivaa musasessiot kolmen vuosikymmenen teknoikonin kanssa on olleet – ja tän ulossaaminen 4kk:n Berliinin kesä- ja musaloman päätteeksi on aivan hillittömän siistiä.

Tätä ei vielä löydy mistään kaupoista, joten toooodella eksklusiivinen pre-order on räätälöity paremmaksi kuin missään muualla tulee olemaan. Vinyylin yhteydessä saa raidat itselleen myös diginä, mukaanlukien bonusraidan. Oon myös puskenut postikulut niin alas, että itku ei tuu kuin korkeintaan mulla postittaessa ja vinskan matkassa tulee vielä extrahyvää tarrojen ja digidownloadien muodossa. Worth every penny!:) Oli tää sun vinskakokoelman ensimmäinen levy tai se vihoviimeinen jonka takia puoliso menettää hermonsa ja ottaa eron, tää on sen arvoista. Täältä saa: https://absenceoffacts.bandcamp.com/album/cari-lekebusch-orion-foreign-shapes (suora linkki biossa)

P.S. Jos ei osaa tai halua ostaa tota kautta niin MobilePaylla onnistuu kans. Silloin vaan privamessagee tulemaan niin heitän speksit.
