• Mineral – One Day – free track

    Hi folks! To celebrate my forthcoming birthday tomorrow, and as a token of gratitude towards all of you out there, I want to share a gift, a new free track: Mineral – One Day. It is an atmospheric drum’n’bass tune strongly influenced by  the 90’s golden era of atmospheric dnb. I want to dedicate this song to my late grandmother, who was always very supportive towards my music. She used to listen for hours while I played the piano and improvised melodies of my own back then. Some of the piano stems in this song are actually recordings of myself playing the piano over two decades ago. I wanted to grasp a moment of time from the past and carry it to the present moment.

    As you may notice, this track has a relatively long intro, around 2,5 minutes in total. And the total length of the track is nearly 9 minutes. The BPM is 160, giving some space to breath & groove both for the breaks and the melodic parts. Wanted to create something slow, yet evolving. So leave your stress for about 10 mins, relax, grab a cup of coffee/beer and I enjoy the song. – Mineral 9.12.2022

    ps. my biggest thanks & recommendations to Resoundsound for the mastering duties.

  • Mineral – Existence – free atmo dnb track

    Today marks my 40th birthday, and I wish to celebrate it with you:

    Please enjoy my new track “Mineral – Existence” as a free download.

    This is atmospheric dnb, a genre that I am profoundly connected with. Big greetings to all of you who have supported during the years, and especially the Atmospheric Drum & Bass Revival -friends at the FB group. The community keeps the genre alive and in good health!

    The artwork picture is by myself, took a photo a week ago. Beautiful winter scenery in Finland. Thought it fits the moods of the track. May the music fill your days with joy. – Mineral 10.12.2021

    ps. thanks to Resound @ Resoundsound for the mastering. Big ups. Much recommended.

  • Mineral.fi 1st Birthday w/ 25 Free dnb Tracks

    After 25 free tracks, 60 blog posts and over 12.000 unique visitors, I’m delighted to celebrate Mineral.fi’s 1-year birthday. Launching this site a year ago has proven to be a really inspiring journey for me, as music has always played a big role in my life. I can honestly say that the site has taken it all to the next level as many of my tracks have been signed to respected labels. I’ve also learned quite a lot about blogging, social media, marketing in music industry among tons of other things that I’m interested in…

    But most importantly, I have been proud to promote artists and the worldwide movement of dnb music in general.

    Finnish and International drum’n’bass tracks for your enjoyment

    We have experienced some extraordinary moments during the first year of the site. Big drum’n’bass names like Fanu, Resound, Furi Anga, Ben Kama and Trisector from Finland have contributed by giving us free tunes. Also fresh younger Finnish talents such as Puzzle, Dangerdogg and Defence have amazed us with their skilled sounds.

    In addition to the Finnish artists, we’ve had the luxury to listen to Italian (Mauoq, Anthony G), British, (J Melodic), Estonian (inZtance), German (Wintermute), and Polish (Radicall & Eclipse) music just to name a few… We’ve even had the chance to listen to a track from Singapore by Diphasics. It’s crazy but without doubts, this site has definitely become an international place for atmospheric drum’n’bass artists worldwide.

    One of the very best highlights of this year was definitely when the Finnish skillful dj St. Laurent recorded all the first 15 free tracks together in a brilliant mix. You should check it out now, if you missed this classic mix! (I’m actually listening to it atm, and it IS good man..)

    Thanks to all of you, 63.000 visits!

    I am very proud to announce that we’ve had over 63.000 visits at the site during the first year. That includes over 12.000 unique visitors, and the numbers are growing steadily. If you like to support the site and drum’n’bass culture even more, feel free to join Mineral’s social networking sites:

    If you are really in the mood for supporting my music, you are more than welcome to buy my released tracks at digital record stores like juno or digital tunes.

    Finally, I’d like to say special thanks to all the 22 artists contributing during the first year. These innovative artists that keep on pushing fresh atmospheric sounds for our enjoyment are Naraka, Ben Kama, Defence, Trisector & inZtance, Fanu, Wintermute, Esc, Puzzle, Eclipse, Burma, Furi Anga, Radicall, Physics, St. Laurent, Resound, J Melodic, Mauoq, Dangerdogg, Diphasic, Anthony G and finally myself Mineral. Big big thanks to you all!

    Also big thanks to the one and only Kongocrew, Pressurecrew, Sciencecrew, all the Tampere & Helsinki Dnb massive, people who have invited me to play dj gigs, LAOS -crew, all friends and fans, and of course big thanks to my lovely wife Anna for supporting me with all the music projects. Let’s keep the music rollin’…

    The journey continues…

    As I’m writing this update, the Mineral.fi Free Tracks Season Two is going on strong. We already have tracks #16-25 available for your enjoyment, and when we get to around free track #30, you should expect Mineral.fi Free Tracks Season Two mix by a special guest dj… so keep checking back.
