Orion (Misc. Management, YleX)
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 bi-weekly the electronic music radio show "Tiistain Tanssi-ilta" on YleX, the Finnish national radio 1. Next to his work at Misc. Management, the first Finnish dance music oriented DJ booking agency, he also holds a residency at the long-lived Jack club.
As a DJ, Orion loves to blend styles and genres - build the set up with house & progressive vibes and vitalize it with breakbeat and techno. On the era of digital music, he doesn't just rely on the easiness of latest MP3-releases:
"I love to use my music collection on a wide scale, not just the records I've bought in the past two months. Forgotten classics, old vinyl gems, they are all there - combining that old sound with the fresh releases has really proved its power on the dancefloor. That's what electronic music is at its best - timeless."
Warming up the legendary Altern8 and Ian Ossia, performing at Koneisto, Hallmark, Danceteria and Time Tunnel, spinning at 30C pool parties and -15C outdoor events, representing corporations like Mini Cooper and Philip Morris and deejaying in Germany, Russia and Spain are among his most memorable moments during the past years.
"I've been lucky enough to have people around me who haven't been there for money and fame but for the love to music. I guess none of us ever believed how big things could get far in the Finnish outback and I can't give enough credit to all those who have been co-producing, supporting and helping with all the countless productions."
