The french skweee-artist Wankers United did a show a few weeks ago at Harmönia Label Night, Mbar, Helsinki, Finland and it kicked ass! Besides making some groovy-ass music Wankers United runs the excellent skweee-label Mazout.
In the video Wankers United is performing his evergreen skweee-anthem Superfönky.
Here’s two tunes from the soon to be released new Duke Slammer 7”! Duke Slammer is definitely one of the grooviest modern funk dudes around. His style is very distinctive and I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot more of him in the future! He recently released a three 7” box set from his digital album “Everybody Sweat”(Bonus Round), all bangers!
Anton Hammer a.k.a. DJ Basicface from Helsinki, Finland! Now this is one of the most versatile producers I know. He is super productive and has made songs from jazz to skweee and truly is a master of styles. Sadly he hasn’t been released yet, but I hope and believe that he will be and in ridiculous quantities. Check him out!
Check Ostridge Forrester out! He’s a producer from Helsinki, Finland and he’s got the funk. His debut release is a digital EP soon to be released on the finnish skweee-label Mässy Recordings. Don’t miss it!
The brilliant skweee-group Yöt did a live set today at nightclub Bassment. It ruled and the place was packed, which you can definitely not see in the videos below.
Here you can see the band playing. It was a bit dark, but I’m quite sure an arm of a genuine Yöt-member can be seen in the picture. Or is it a leg?
Here is the only object in the club clearly visible with my crappy camera. There’s still some damn good music playing in the background.
A new finnish rap collective, Black Swag Gang, also did a gig, where records were played by DJs Skinny Limp and Plankton and some really tight rapping was done by Dumb, Moonlit Man and Ameeba. No video of this one.
The club is called “Uudet Mutantit”. It specialises in modern beats and has brought us some really good music in the past few months, too. Live sets have been done by the skweee-group BMMB(r.i.p.), Tiiu Helinä(from Clouds) and Eevil Stöö to mention a few. DJing has been taken care of by RPK, Non Person and others.
Definitely worth going every time.
Here’s one more track by Yöt, Minigrip Walk. This one was released this month on Raha&Tunteet.
