"In the old days you'd call it 'the needle-drop'. It's where you can drop the needle on the vinyl and after hearing a few notes you know exactly who the singer is. That's a quality I'm always looking for." - Tony Visconti

Great article about Finnish music scene. "SIN COS TAN: By now you should know that we got some special love for these two gentlemen. Their latest album Blown Away is a wonderful piece of tropical retro-pop and catchy little hits. Singer Juho Paalosmaa and acclaimed Finnish electronic producer Jori Hulkkonen work together in finest Miami Vice tradition."
