New Track With Muffler

I’m proud to present you the track I worked with Muffler called Can’t Breathe from his new album Stone Cold. Muffler has been involved in the drum & bass scene for over a decade, starting back in 2000 with “Somber / Fury” on legendary Urban Takeover label and to date has clocked up over 100 releases.

Yotto & Sansa

Finally got back together with talented, up and coming DJ YOTTO of Anjuna Beats at The Dairy Proper/Gold Room in London. I ‘ve been privileged to work with him before, when he was more active with the house duo Something Good in Helsinki. He’s going solo now which I’m very excited about. He is extremely soulful young DJ/producer and very down to earth!! I’m sure that you will hear a lot about him in the near future. After our session he rushed down the Wembley to open for Above & Beyond.

For this new track I was able to use a lyric I wrote some time ago for another track which was never released as it happens sometime. So my lyric became free again and was waiting for the right track to come along. When YOTTO played me his song I knew that the ambiguous lyric would be a fit. The track is positively haunting! You’ll hear the outcome next year!!

I’ve been listening to Group Therapy podcast by Above & Beyond quite a lot in these past months. Especially the song We’re All We Need feat. Zoe Johnston has become very dear to me. It’s the anthem for the summer 2015.

Chris Coco & Sansa

Had a really nice writing session with Chris Coco in his studio in London. He’s so sweet and lovely guy! Chris played me a track he’s been working on and I sang/whispered a very static melody onto it.  Sound-wise I’d say it reminds me of Mazzy Star which I love. The track is utterly beautiful and very visual and the lyric is quite surrealistic and a nature like. (more…)

Anssi Kela Cover Song

Here’s my respond to the ‘Martin Acoustic Guitar Challenge’ by the Finnish artist Anssi Kela. Anssi Kela put up a competition in which he asked the fans to make a cover song of free of choice from his latest album Nostalgia. The winner song/video gets a plenty of sympathy and a custom made Anssi Kela Martin & Co. Acoustic guitar.

To be frank I don’t mind about the competition, for me this is about being creative, finding new interpretation of the tune and having a bit of fun. I just enjoyed doing it.

Sabrina & Sansa & Boys

I covered Sabrina’s eurohit song Boys (Summertime Love) a while ago and shot a video to the song. A MIRACLE happened – she was performing in my old hometown Seinäjoki at the time when we were shooting the video. It was quite unbelievable since she hasn’t performed in Finland in 15 years.

So we contacted her manager, sent over my cover song and asked if she wanted to be in my video.. And she said YES!!
