Playing my debut gig in Thailand in two weeks at UnKonsciousness Festival - Asia’s biggest trance beach festival. VII is hosting our own stage and whole line up and production looks amazing 😍 Come and join the dance on beach under starlight ✨ ... See MoreSee Less
This was one of the first ones we organized with my friends back in 1992. It was illegal rave at a squat house with lots of smoke, strobos and black plastic bags on walls as decoration ❤️ ... See MoreSee Less
This very event must have been among my first raves! Vague memories also from 'VR makasiinit' 'Kaapelitehdas' and of course 'Lepakko' - and then later slightly different types of vague memories from Viikki forest, Sammatti full moon easter party, Porvoo forest, Rajasaari, Karhusaari, Karjaa, Porvoo art factory, Lammassaari etc
There were some random parties when I was pre-teen, but I don't have any clear memories of them. Music was probably 90s acid/rave and didn't really hit me. Koneisto in Turku was the first bigger one.
First rave I ever went to was a local event in Winnipeg called Raving in the Ruins. It was held at the Ruins of the Saint Norbert monastery and it was amazing! I had so much fun and one of my brother's friends was one of the DJs.
Poing clubs @pakkahuone then Warp 9 tullikamari 8.10.1994 (awsome) and some Pety ug parties in random locations made me love raves - seos right before 1995(?) and tons of great parties in 1995, including communion, palace, propulsion, house of house tours, spirit, elements, endless amount of pety afterparties. <3
First proper night out. Was a fantastic night & I think I danced all night
-88 loppuvuodesta oli Kauppatorin rannassa proomussa ekat raven tapaset. Sit -89 aukes club Berlin...house, aciid, techno & ravemusa räjäytti mun tajunnan. Jokelta ja Käpältä sai tietoa jatkobileissä joita oli Kaapelilla, Lepakossa yms.
Those times awww..we all were so innocent and fucking exited!
2001: Motion in Philadelphia, PA, USA featuring Bad Boy Bill with a host of other performers beforehand who each brought their A-game. We had a great club scene back then.
Just turned 18 never looked back 💙
Nämä oli ekat joissa näin jäbän soittamassa 1993
Planet of Love '95.
Mutta missä on nykyisin Mighty Rubber Boots??
Carl cox vs dave graham 1993 at the pleasure drome Birkenhead 2 miles from liverpool city centre uk aged 14 😁
There was a club at eerikinkatu 3 where club alcatraz is now. No idea who was playing or what was the name of club/ event. Year was propably -96
I was there too, but I guess it wasn’t Oranssi’s first rave at ”Putkinotko”?
So it was not my first rave ever, but one of the firsts 😊
2003 in Dublin
My first one was Alpha in 1996 here in Germany.
Vaasan keltsus joskus -90 puolivälis, en muista nimeä mutta flyeri oli tehty valkoiselle pohjalle vihreällä tekstillä. Hyvät oli, DJ veti vinyyliltä, paikka pimeä, strobot välkkyi ja savukone pauhas. Tästähän se lähti, muistaakseni Vaasan entisellä sokeritehtaalla oli niitä luvattomia sitten. :)
Musta 1992 oli jäähalilla k-16 ravet uutena vuotena ni siellä ekat ja 1994 sit Tavastialla tais olla Twilight niminen tapahtuma missä Ruffneck ja Knor oli soittamassa ja tietty Deep ja kaikki sinä vuonna❤💎😍
Ysärillä käytiin kavereiden kanssa tuollaisissa laittomissa bileissä Raumalla. Olin 13 tai 14 kun alettiin niissä käymään. Pieneksi kaupungiksi siellä oli silloin usein näitä ugbileitä. Mustat jätesäkit seinillä ja savukoneet oli todellakin se juttu silloin. 🙂🙂🙂🙂
Sieltä se rakkaus musiikkiin löytyi ja säilyy aina. 💗
Lahti, vuodet lienee 93-94 ja Vesitornissa sekä Ankkurihallissa ekat kerrat. Lauteilla oli yleensä paikalliset tähdet ja Maniac.

Hello 2020! Thank you so much to everyone who came and raved with us at HELLO2020 in Helsinki, DJ Orion for the back2back set and all the djs who delivered perfect soundtrack for welcoming the New Year 🙌🏻 And extra special thanks to @proteusharri and his trusted crew for superb production 🙏
'Classical Trancelations 3' album is out now! Recorded live in Helsinki at Hartwall Arena with 8500 people in the crowd and over 150 musicians on stage. This was a massive undertaking to imagine, compose, license, record, mix and release and I am very very happy and proud of how Lowland's album sounds and feels like. So much love & respect to each and everyone involved in creating this <3
We are ecstatic for the release of this very special album. ‘Classical Trancelations 3’ brings you gripping orchestral interpretations of some of your favourite electronic music classics. Tracks such as Rank 1’s ‘Airwave’, Chicane’s ‘Saltwater’, Moby’s ‘Porcelain’, Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’, Darude’s ‘Sandstorm’ and Pendulum’s ‘The Island’ have been re-imagined into new emotional pieces, that will move you to your core.
The third album on Armada Music was performed live in Helsinki by Lowland, The Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, Ahjo Ensemble and soloists Saara Aalto, Reino Nordin, Kasmir and Marianna, conducted by Eero Lehtimäki. We invite you to relive the pure beauty and power of music through this wonderful album.
This will surely be one of the most emotional and most important gigs of 2020 for me <3
I have the honor of opening the night for my good friend and "brother from another techno mother" for the past 25 years: Proteus at his Proteus - The Final Show at Kaapelitehdas, exactly one year from now on 12.12.2020.
Harri is one of the most passionate, creative, hard working and friendly people I have seen in this scene and his legacy for Finnish electronic music and global hard dance scene will be felt and respected years and years from here.
Hope to see You on the legendary dance floor of Kaapeli. I heard tickets are selling fast and there will be shit loads of lasers and pyrotechnics. Sounds like a night to remember <3 ... See MoreSee Less
Music industry is way too focused on numbers these days - instead of feelings, talent or artistry... ✨ The flip side of coin as an artist is to acknowledge how many people your music reaches, which is inspiring. It’s all about balance I guess? ☯️ Thank you to each and everyone of the 487 700 people who listened to my music in Spotify last year 🙏 ... See MoreSee Less
Thank YOU. For authentic and great wisdom. This industry needs more insightful people, it transfers to the vibe and the sound of the music. 👌
I don’t listen to Spotify. I trust my feelings and what my ears tells me. I listen and listen, try to find melodies, which touches me from totally other sources.
Goosebumbs and smile on my face and in my soul tells me, what works and is most of all - beautiful. You have done it time after another, year after year 🙏
First time I saw and heard you playing, was loooooong time ago, I think it was in Botta?
From that point to nowadays you have been my one of my absolute favourite artist - source of my own inspiration, cause your vision to tracks and how the soundworlds are built is totally exeptional.
Keep on doing what you do - I just love it 🙏
And sorry, if my english is not just perfect 😞
And this is awesome!
Just by knowing and feeling some of your thoughts about the whole thing. Keep up that sound!
And thank you for the music! Forward Forever
Thank You too! 😉
No need to use spotify to know your music is amazing 🤗

The epic extravaganza that is Luminosity Events presents VII Amsterdam is happening this Saturday. I answered 15 BIG questions about music and life for this video interview that VII and Luminosity Events crew created. Check it out if you want to sneak peak inside my head :) ... See MoreSee Less
My new single ’One Man’s Dream’ is out now in Beatport, Spotify, YouTube and Apple Music. As heard in Transmission, Luminosity EDC and Amsterdam Dance Event with people always asking “what is this..?” It is a very special record for me and has been in the works for three years now. Hope you like it too ❤️ ... See MoreSee Less
Loving this choon! Heard it in your sets for a while now, glad its finally released! 🥰
Brilliant piece of music obviously based on the equally brilliant original by Yanni. Turning it into what it has become requires a extremely creative brain. Same goes for ‘revolution industrielle’. Love it, love it, love it. Kudos to you Tapio!
Loving it and can't wait to try it out on proper system designed by yours truly :)
I love this track! Congrats
What a stunning piece. 👌 Epic.
Yes. Everything about this is perfect. I'm honestly so grateful for your involvement in the scene for the last 20 years - more? Producers like you keep my interest in dance music alive to this day
Yes, finally it’s here!
Tapsa+age of love + jarre kinda song= cant go wrong 😊😊😊
Super inspiring producer get-together with this talented bunch of people in middle of Finnish woods ✨ Thank you @paavoab for hosting us and everyone else for being the lovely persons you are 🙏 ... See MoreSee Less
