  • 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.

Syksyiseen iltaan on tulossa huomattava määrä extrasälää mutta tällä kertaa jätetään kaikki hypetys ja pidetään iltaa varten yllätyksiä säästössä

  • Nick Warren bio
  • You can tell when Nick Warren’s on the decks. The music emanating from the man is that perfect club mix of driving percussion and soaring musicality, bursting out of the speakers, soaking everyone in melody, drenching them in sound.
  • On the floor, where it really matters, his crowd experience all the peaks and troughs that make his music so unique. Locking on early, you’ll hear his deeper take on house, which morphs, as the club mood changes, into harder territory, music for sweating and losing yourself to. That’s why Nick Warren is so respected, because he knows how to truly work a club, and a crowd, delivering again and again. That’s what comes with vision and, just as importantly, experience.
  • Nick, a music obsessive who grew up on punk, reggae and pop was, like so many DJs turned onto the power of house music. Living in Bristol, he’d been playing tunes for a few years before, running his own club night finally catching the attention of a group of guys who had their own band, he was asked to be their tour DJ when they went to play America. The group was Massive Attack.
  • His sound is entirely unique, sourced by forging relationships with cutting edge producers all over the globe, most of his set still made up of unsigned new electronic talent. This is no better represented than in the continuing series of compilations and his bi monthly Soundgarden show.
  • He has also taken over A&R at Hope Recordings as the final link in the chain that allows him to represent the sound that he has so long championed.
  • Nick Warren isn’t for standing still, he loves what he’s doing too much for that, but you know that already.

  • – The undisputed king of balearic nu-disco.
  • – Sold out Korjaamo in ‘09 and was one of Flow ‘10 highlights.
  • – The Man behind last year’s massive ‘We Can’t Fly’ hit.
  • – Has remixed Grace Jones, Chromeo and Sebastian Tellier.
  • – Releases on labels like Kitsune, Wall of Sound and Turbo.
  • – One of the most followed blogosphere tastemakers.
  • “I have always loved disco. Although I have ventured to quite a wide range of musical styles in my days, I have always been drawn to the multicolored light that the mirror ball sprinkles, like a moth whose faith is sealed at the moment he sees the flame.
  • If anything, disco has a definite sexual dimension to it. The pulsating bass calling your hips, the siren’s whispering call to the red, velvet side of dance music. From the early New York days disco set the scene for unforeseen hedonism, fast fingers in the dark corners, puffing of the imaginary feathers on the blazing dance floor. It was not all cute scandinavian kisses from Abba. Soon Italy would become the source of the cheesiest and greasiest disco records, piano sprinkled, teasingly slow dance floor weapons. Sweat blended into sweat, and the foundations of the modern club culture were laid. Disco would become the refuge for freaks of all shapes and colours, and while the commercial rise of disco was followed by the fall of it, that’s what disco always remained like in the underground. Freedom of dance, for everyone.
  • Of course disco made its inevitable comeback a few years ago. And on the top of that new wave of disco Aeroplane was riding. With an amazingly fresh production style the belgian duo of Vito de Luca and Stephen Fasano took what was italo disco and made it into something of their own. Anthemic compositions with heart piercing melancholia, songs that are happy in a sad way, bittersweet like the last days of summer sun. Shamelessly melodic, irresistibly danceable. I was in love from the first sounds of it. That was not love of the mature fashion either. I was bounced back in time, propelled into a teenage first kiss frenzy, being thrown around by vigorous hormones exploding through the blood stream. For me it was sex disguised as music. Not in a shy, flirty way either, but like the demanding, firm hands of an experienced lover, borderline rude in their overwhelming self-assurance. With the genre defining singles like Caramellas, Superstar and Without Lies, breathtaking remixes like the global super hit versions of “Paris” by Friendly Fires and “William’s Blood” by Grace Jones, and of course the eventual “We Can’t Fly” -album we all got to marvel at what quickly became the Aeroplane trademark sound. Big as a jetliner taking off, glimmering in the sun, never ending lift off. There would also be, and still is, a new Aeroplane DJ -mix available online for free every single month, always surprising me with amazing new music I have never heard before.
  • Although many have tried to mimic the Aeroplane sound and style from the very beginning, they all have failed. Aeroplane firmly remains at the top of the modern disco movement, making people lose themselves on the floor wherever the scent of kerosene is mixed into the night air. Fasten your seat belts and turn off your electronic appliances. Hold on tight, we’re going high.”

  • The sounds we have been grooving on for decades can all be taken back to one place. It started in the 70’s and has evolved into hundreds of different genres, sub genres and new movements. No matter where you look and what you listen to in dance music, it all has a home in a place called Disco.
  • ‘Disco’ is a universal word that is easier experienced than explained. That is probably why new generations are so easily drawn to it. The underground has, and still is calling for people who are not afraid, but thrilled by new experiences.
  • Remember stepping into a night club and getting hit with a beat that takes over you? It starts with an uncontrolled bumping of the head. Slowly your hole body is hypnotized into the beat. When the melodies enter something inside you explodes and lifts you way up. And that’s it. You are in and hooked. Your whole being is begging for the DJ to fly you to undiscovered places. Lucky for all of us, he does take us there. This moment feels new, hedonistic, fun, cosmic and completely unforgettable.
  • LOVE is thrilled to have Aeroplane, the undisputed king of the new era of Disco come and take us on a trip, where time and space do not exist. Buckle up, order a drink, close your eyes and come with us. On this dance-floor, we CAN fly.

  • LOVE. Brings us all together.
