Today it is.
Location La Tour, Helsinki.
Starting at 22.00.
A "small update" to the lineup ::
Mick Park from Tilt has informed that he is prevented to come in Finland due to personal reasons. We are deeply sorry about this, but we have done our best.
As compliment, we have booked Leama to cover Mick. So, now the lineup is really impressive - LEAMA & MOOR (UK). We truly hope that this will compensate the ticket price.
More information about Leama ::
Leama is the globally respected UK house DJ and producer responsible for several high profile original productions and collaborations which have propelled him to a top 50 positioning in the US URB Magazine DJ Poll and created the platform for a series of global tours taking the worlds leading dance floors by storm.
With early influences accredited to electronic music dignitaries Sasha and Laurent Garnier along with rock bands such as Pink Floyd and taking great influence in music from films, Leama to create his own diverse yet universally appealing sound, combining elements of house, tech-house, deep and progressive along with ambient and breaks, summed up best by Leama as "funked up rockin' party music"
Beginning his production career back in 1997, early collaborations with Tilt and Malcolm McLaren were invaluable in setting the standard for the quality of his music, which is evident today both in his solo productions and as one half of melodic progressive house act Leama & Moor.
His production style uses subtle yet familiar ambient undertones, layering soundscapes and placing great emphasis on the importance of melody, which is projected on his debut solo production, Melodica. At it's time of release the track became a particular favourite with maestros such as Sasha, Dave Seaman, Sander Kleinenberg and Paul Oakenfold, who featured the track on his highly successful Travelling Mix Compilation.
Whilst his joint venture with Tilt under the Odessi guise named 'Moments in Space' gained equal critical acclaim and DJ support, the 'Matrix' based track rocketed it's way onto an impressive accolade of prestigious mix compilations including Euphoria Deep and Chilled, Dave Seaman's Renaissance and Anthony Pappas Nu-Breed Mix on Global Underground.
Another project inspired by the silver screen was Leama's massive underground hit 'Requiem for a Dream', released in 2003 on Perfecto Records. The track went on to receive huge global support from the likes of Tiesto, Sander Kleinenberg and James Holden and found it's way onto several major compilations including Tiesto's Nyana Mix CD and Paul Oakenfolds - Great Wall of China.
As a DJ, Leama has taken his unique sound to many of the worlds leading events including Muzika in Miami, Pacha in Tel Aviv and Renaissance in the UK whilst becoming a regular feature on the South American circuit with regular tours incorporating Argentina, Aruba, Brazil, Columbia, Ecuador, Mexico and Venezuela.
Whilst his iconic status amongst the elite of America's most respected artists remains strong, Leama's commitments closer to home remain equally impressive as Germany, Greece, Israel, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain and The Ukraine are amongst the nations toured by Leama.
With a heavy ongoing production schedule including the long awaited debut Leama & Moor album and an equally impressive weekend tour schedule things remain very positive for this unique pro active musician.
