I just finished my dnb remix for the Knowledge magazine “Seba – Painted Skies” remix contest. Feedback would be much appreciated – please share your thoughts at soundcloud! :)

The Free Track of The Week #17 comes from Resound, a good friend of mine who’s been around in the dnb scene for more than a decade. Check the atmospheres in the track “Northern Lights” by the one and only Resound – produced back in 2000!

Resound – Northern Lights [download mineral.fi_free017]

Resound is a musician/producer and DJ from Tampere, Finland. Many know him from his music on such record labels as Digital Soundboy, Renegade Hardware, Razor’s Edge/Metalheadz, Function and Secret Operations. He also does a lot of mixing/engineering/mastering work for others.

Resound’s style is timeless, I’d say. Just think about this track “Northern Lights”: it was done more than a decade ago and it still sounds SO fresh with the atmospheric melodies and fine unique beat variations. No wonder Resound is recognized worldwide as a producer and dj.

OUT NOW: LOXY & RESOUND – VERTIGO (EXIT RECORDS / MOSAIC LP)

One of Resound’s newer productions, “Vertigo”, done in collaboration with Loxy was released recently, and it is definitely worth checking out. Listen & buy at Juno and other good record stores. Also, hold tight for the Loxy & Resound album which is due on Exit later…

MINERAL & RESOUND IN COLLABORATION: NEW TRACK ALMOST FINISHED

We’ve also been working on a yet untitled drum’n'bass track with Resound, and the track is about to get finished.

I’m planning to record a mixtape later this week including this new track (and bunch of other new tracks!), and it’ll be available here at mineral.fi next week. This is a mix that I’ve been planning to record for a long time, so check back soon!

The Season Two of the free tracks starts with a magnificent tune, “No Motion” by Puzzle. It’s an amazing piece of art, atmospheric dnb with deep vibes. Grab your coffees and start listening.

Puzzle – No Motion [download mineral.fi_free016]

Puzzle – No Motion by Puzzle

Puzzle alias Juho Kavasto is a very talented young musician hailing from Finland. He was featured at mineral.fi earlier with his track “Kumoi“, and now we have the luxury to enjoy and download another fine track by this promising artist. I can’t tell you how much I like the pads accompanied with the deep bass and minimalistic melodies. The feeling in “No Motion” is really atmospheric and somehow unreal – these melodies set up a really unique mood. Hope you enjoy this track as much as I do. And if you do, make sure to join Puzzle’s soundcloud & facebook, the links are below!

At his early teenage years Lauri Hynninen aka St. Laurent was introduced to drum & bass by the boy next door – how romantic! After listening countless hours to the newly released Timeless by Goldie and things coming out from Good Looking Records, there certainly was no turning back. It was exactly those exciting drum rolls, amen variations and deep punching basslines that made him fall in love.

In addition to being a big coffee enthusiast he’s also spending his spare time running the monthly Funk’it club and being part of the Science HKI cru. And this is the key point to the musical variety of this gentleman.

Apart from drum & bass, he’s collecting music from soul and funk to jazz and house. Still, the main focus is in drum & bass – all sorts of it. As he puts it, “If it’s jazzy or has a lot of atmosphere and amen break, I probably dig it!”

The Finnish drum and bass and dubstep collection 2010 was released exactly a year ago. I was really proud to be featured in this CD / digital release with my track “Venus” (check below). Now I want to honour the release at this special birthday. Thanks again for making this collection LAOS-crew!

Clip Mineral – Venus by largeamountofsoul

“This collection sets a point in time where a lot of history and Finnish electronic music culture is fitted in one package. It was more than 10 years ago when a few dnb scene affiliates started talking about making a collection of Finnish breakbeat music. Sometimes good things take their time. In 2010 Finnish drum and bass and dubstep scene is more vital than ever. New artists are popping like mushrooms in the rain and established names are putting out albums that get international recognition. There is no better time than this to present the sound of Finnish drum and bass and dubstep to the wide audience”
