DINO MANSIK

Led by Mikko M. Koskinen and Johanna Koskimo, the dreampop-duo from Finland is an attractive combination of catchy pop hooks, electronic soundscapes and cinematic vibrations.

Initially launched as Mikko’s solo project, Dino Mansik became active when Johanna Koskimo joined in. They released their first singles in 2017 and so far the duo has presented their style with a total of eight singles. Dino Mansik has cooked their debut album with patience and the album will be out 1st of October 2021.

MUSCULAR

Muscular’s sound is electronic music with grooves of Funk, harmony of Soul. synthesizer sounds from the future including deep basses, vocoded vocals and sparkling arpeggios stirred with organic instruments such as pianos, guitars, horns and percussions.

The brains behind this Muscular project is Finnish keyboard player and pianist Ilmari Aitoaho (b.1988). Currently he is also part of rock-funk group East Funk Attack, Motown inspired soul band Punomo and indie-rock cult Yournalist. Ilmari has surrounded himself with super talented musicians (and good friends) who give their own brilliant touch to this Muscular tissue.

NGHTRDIO

Finnish-based producers, Oskr and Tsaar started to make music together in 2018 after many years of playing in different indie-bands. Their mutual interest of approaching music in more electronic ways led them to make a trip to the Finnish archipelago to produce some deep house beats. nghtrdio was born. Their vision was to capture the feeling of the darkest hour of the day and put it into music.

The duo has been influenced by the European techno culture and electronic music from Iceland to Romania without forgetting producers in their homeland. Utilizing their indie roots, they found their unique style of combining the best of both worlds. nghtrdio is deep electronic house with emotional melodies and original vocals.

YOURNALIST

Yournalist is a Turku based supergroup. Since its inception in 2011, Yournalist have released two albums, two EP’s along with a bunch of eclectic music videos. Despite having fair amount of attention and appreciation with their studio work, Yournalist is probably best known for their energetic and unpredictable live shows. Like someone once said: Life is like Yournalist – you never know what you’re gonna get. Unless you buy a box of chocolates, then you get a box of chocolates.

History of drinking

In the late 2010, debut album by The Friend was completed. Record companies showed some interest in publishing the record. However, after some time and while there wasn’t anything concrete, the band held on to their initial plan to publish the record themselves. They needed some help in promoting the album, so they asked Esa Tontti from Gaea booking to help them out in promoting the album. Esa pointed out that a record company needs a name. ’Drink Tonight’ was for many years the working title for The Friend’s album and since the album was eventually called ’Athletic Girls’ they thought that it would have been such a waste not to use ’Drink Tonight’ anywhere.
