This night celebrates Orkidea's 20 years of DJing and the release of his third artist album which also includes a book with an extensive look into the finnish clubbing and electronic music history from 1991-2011. The event will feature a photo and flyer exhibition covering these twenty years. For this special night Orkidea has invited some of his favorite DJs and artists to come together and take us on a 20 year journey of electronic dance music.
The album comes equipped with a beautiful 40 page book, that takes us into the history of finnish clubbing and electronic music scene. Featuring interviews with 20 finnish club legends such as Alex Nieminen, Lil' Tony, Mr.A, Proteus & Tab and some ultra rare interviews with the likes of Sam Inkinen and Eliot Ness. These indepth interviews were conducted by DJ/journalist Erkko Lehtinen. The book - designed by Niko Nyman and Jani Isoranta - is visualized with photos from Finland's most talented club photographer's collections from 1991-2011.
The album '20' features brand new Orkidea productions, collaborations with Solarstone, Lowland, Heikki L, JS16 and remixes for Tilt vs Paul van Dyk, Way Out West and Art of Trance. Also included are remakes of trance classics such as 'Hale Bopp' & 'Sun Down' and 2011 remixes of Orkidea classics 'Unity' and 'Beautiful'. The album is released by Universal Music in Scandinavia and Solarstone's Solaris label in the rest of the known universe. Release date is 11.11.11.
This event is a kick start for 20 date tour around Finland and Europe. Included are international gigs at the legendary Ministry of Sound in London & Technoclub in Frankfurt, traditional finnish venues Klubi in Turku and Senssi in Tampere and epic one offs such as Pacifique and The Playground Birthday event. Continuing where Taika & Metaverse tours were left - we think this will be an amazing reunion of old and new music lovers. Full details of the whole tour coming soon...
