Recently I helped a friend of mine, Matias Långbacka, to record and mix the debut performance of his piece “Rhapsody In All Colors” at Schauman Hall. The music is a grand mixture of different styles, from classical to jazz. I think the result is really great. The composition is fantastic and the band pulled it off really well. I recommend you have a listen:
So, I’ve been working with this metal-band called Nighon for a while now, as their sound and mixing engineer, and finally their debut album “Cor Oblivionis” will be released by Univocal Music. It’s been a long time waiting and I’m really excited that the rest of the world will finally get to hear it. Personally I think it’s a really great album and I’m very proud of the final result.
There will be a hang-out at Black Sheep Pub & Terrace in Jakobstad on December 27th, and the album will be played from around 10 pm. So swing by and get your copy!
Indie-rock band Hipster Slayer recently recorded a live video of their song “In space” out by the beautiful Finnish archipelago at Fäboda in Jakobstad, to which I did the audio recording. It’s a really great band with a wonderful song worth checking out, and I’m really impressed with the filming and video editing. Have a look:

On October 7th Datle Quintet released their debut studio recording in the form of an EP. It’s four really great songs, performed by a fantastic group, and I got the honor of doing the final mastering for the EP.
The EP can be ordered from the Univocal Music webshop, or if you are in Jakobstad you can visit Centrum – den lilla saluhallen on Köpmansgatan 18, where Univocal Music sell a lot of cool music and merch.
I recently recorded and mixed a concert by the soul-band The Napkins, during their gig at the Spotlight festival in Jakobstad, from which two songs can be heard on lead-singer Charlotta Kerbs’ soundcloud-page, and a few songs were also played in an interview on Radio Vega. I really love this band. Great songs and wonderful musicians. They have a really cool sound. Check out the songs below, and if it sounds interesting you can also have a look at vocalist Charlotta’s website: www.charlottakerbs.com.
Their last gig at Jeppis Music & Arts in Jakobstad was also recorded, and it sounds great. So, stay tuned and eventually you may also get to hear that as well :)
