Starting in the early nineties from the warehouse raves of the industrial city of Tampere, stirring the Northern Finland electronic music scene for over five years and settling down in Helsinki in 2006, Orion is today one of the busiest DJs in Finland.
Orion hosts a monthly electronic music radio show on both YleX, the National Radio 1 and Radio NRJ Finland and is also one of the former hosts of Tiistain Tanssi-ilta, the oldest EDM radio show in Finland. Next to his work at Misc. Management, the first Finnish dance music oriented DJ booking agency, he also runs and co-produces the long-lived Jack club in Helsinki and holds a residency in Tampere-based club One.
Being brought up in a family deeply involved with music, Ville Rastas a.k.a "Glxblt" spent most of his childhood happily bashing both the keys of his piano and his computer. However, as the young musician/geek reached his puberty, things went horribly wrong. Despite the classical training and responsible parenting, Glxblt developed an interest for electronic music which later on evolved into full-blown love for techno and especially drum'n'bass. Finding like-minded people in a small Finnish city was practically impossible, but eventually it happened and Glxblt made the first contact within the neighbouring town's rave scene and coincidentally, the demoscene.
Since then the young junglist has honed his skills in producing and DJ'ing, focusing on the darkest, techiest newschool drum'n'bass you can find without forgetting about the rolling, danceable beats that define the genre. Filling in the demand for harder, heavier drum'n'bass, Glxblt is a bundle of big things just waiting to happen.
Pasik is one of the founders of Sequence Ry, a non-profit organization for promoting electronic dance music and arranging raves and clubs mostly in eastern parts of Finland. Sequence has arranged Assembly Raves during the last 4 years.
Pasik also has a background in the demoscene. He got interested of the scene in 1992, visited his first demoparty in 1995 and started arranging Simulaatio demoparty in Finland in 2003 with his friends.
Pasik first fell in love with trance music in 1995, when a lot of melodic goatrance was procuced and released. Later he bought his own decks, started collecting records and eventually played his first DJ gig in 2004.
Pasik plays psychedelic trance in its many forms. Oldschool melodic goa trance, full-on psychedelic trance or easier progressive psytrance, focusing on strong melodies and energy for the dancefloor.
