TAHTIEN SUOJAAN TOISTENSA MAA
12" Vinyl UK
Support by Laurent Garnier
Epic is a word shamelessly misused in the modern age, so it should be noted this track is not epic; it's beyond epic, post-epic, if you will. Harmonic, yet driving. Melancholic, yet aggressive. Jori Hulkkonen's whole career compressed into one track -minus the hits. The 12" comes packed with remixes that are more than remixes, too. J-7 lifts the spirits with his vocal take on the track, while jazz virtuoso Aki Rissanen shows us why we call him a jazz virtuoso.
The original version was released on digital platforms originally in 2019 on Jori's own Blanco & Tinto imprint, and earned him an Emma (Finnish Grammy) nomination. The track has been getting support from industry heavy-hitters such as Laurent Garnier and Nick Warren. [info sheet from distr.]
