Erkka Lempiäinen Top Five
Forming one half of a producer unit Komytea since 2005, Erkka Lempiäinen has been busy producing and composing music for over a decade. Komytea's main projects at the moment are Komytea itself and the co-operation with singer-songwriter Michael Cassette. Both Komytea and Michael Cassette are supported by the leading DJs in the world.
NewYorkCity (Reason Factory Soundbank / Subtractor Patches / Polysynths)
Great bell base. Take off the resonance and add a tiny amount of FM and you have the same sound that was used for the lead melody in Michael Cassette's track "Shadows Movement".
Jupiter 4 (Reason Factory Soundbank / Subtractor Patches / Polysynths)
Great for adding analog feeling to any track.
Easysynth (Reason Factory Sound Bank / Combinator Patches / Synth Poly)
Take the decay down slightly and add some release, and you get very nice ethereal plucked synth.
Ambient Bamboo Valley (Reason Factory Sound Bank / Combinator Patches / Bells and mallets)
Good combination of percussion and voice oohs. Very suitable for hypnotic and spooky atmospheres.
4 band Compression (Reason Factory Sound Bank / ALL Effect Patches / Mastering)
An essential tool for fat basses.
Bentley Jones Top Five
Bentley Jones signed to EMI earlier this year and is the first ever British artist to have a major label Japanese album.
Ming's Top Five
As one half of seminal break beat duo Ming+FS, Ming has released over thirty 12"s and four full length albums.
Sandro Silva Top 5
Sandro Silva is one of Holland’s most promising new talents. He is known for his broad, energetic sound that is so perfectly combined with a musical depth acquired by his years of piano study. Starting his career in dance in 2006 at a very young age, Sandro Silva has already released tracks on Tiger Records, Dim Mak, Institubes, Southern Fried Records and Laidback Luke’s Mixmash label.
