    DJ / MASDA (JP) / & JIMI

    Yuki Masda started DJing in Japan in the mid 90s, cutting his teeth playing regularly in Osaka and later Tokyo, where he’s been throwing his own parties by the name Cabaret, which is also the name of the label he runs with another Japanese veteran, So Inagawa. Sophisticated selections and no fuss mixing are a characteristic quality in his sets, while Cabaret is known for some of the most enjoyable dance music releases in recent years. Now based in Europe, DJ Masda plays regularly at venues across the continent. Some Helsinki locals still like to bring up that time when he played at the now defunct MK54. Masda is sure to make you forget the passage of time, if you let him.

    Seeing and hearing Leo Pol play is bound to make you smile. His fun-loving energy shines through his live sets that sound like Paul Johnson having an afternoon studio session with Jeff Mills (when he was in his tribal state of mind), pure...dancing...ecstacy. Though he’s kept a relatively low profile, this French dude is on a steady rise. Operating from Paris, he runs his own imprints Uniile and IILE, and is a resident at arguably the city’s most influential dance music hub at the moment, Concrete. Leo Pol will be bringing his trusty 909 along with some other studio delicacies to Post Bar for a good ol’ jacking time.

    Maayan's rise into a household name has followed a natural pace. She’s been involved in the Berlin scene for well over a decade now, with releases on трип and Perlon, a label that’s put out some of her highlights under her given name in addition to aliases Laverne Radix and Mara Trax, her collaboration with veteran deejay Vera. Stylewise she’s been moving from the more CDV associated house towards headier techno in recent years, though diversity continues to be a prominent quality in her sets. Expect deep meditative states and bubbling subby rhythms.

    Pekko has been creating music in various bands since his early teenhood. Once a bassist in a death metal band, Pekko now makes expertly texturized techno. His live sets are somewhat of a legendary affair in his hometown of Helsinki also earning him praises from Resident Advisor in a festival review from a few years back ツ. This highly self-critical artist known for destroying his own work once stated “The world is full of lukewarm stuff and I don’t want to put out anymore of that”. In addition to his own music, Pekko ran the popular Sexdate event series in Helsinki together with Sebastian Holm for a couple of years, booking acts like Lipelis, Leo Pol, Ansome and Brawther to name a few. Now we have the huge pleasure of having Pekko perform a live set for our, and his own enjoyment.

    DJ FETT / BURGER (NO) & / STILETTI-ANA (LIVE)

    Stiletti-Ana (Live)

    Ilari Larjosto has been quietly releasing dance and non-dance music for at least 11 years now together with Niko Liinamaa as Jesse and more recently through his solo project Stiletti-Ana, both of which are local favorites in Helsinki. Last year’s Jesse album Twotinos (produced by DJ Sotofett) came out on legendary imprint Keys Of Life and was one of their best yet, shifting from tribalistic ambient to stoner rock to spaced out disco. Ilari’s productions as Stiletti-Ana tend to be more dance-oriented but his own quirky flair sets them apart from others out there. Stiletti-Ana will be performing live, in celebration of his new double LP with DJ Fett Burger.

    DJ Fett Burger

    DJ Fett Burger is one of the few current day deejays whose semi-cultic reputation is mostly only rivaled by his brother DJ Sotofett. Growing up listening to a wide variety of music from hip hop to techno to funk in the 90s in Norway, Fett Burger has a developed a natural style of playing, with selections that keep you entertained and locked in. Humour is a prevalent feature in his work, whether it’s producing, drawing, deejaying or releasing records, the latest of which he does through Sex Tags UFO, Sex Tags Mania (together with his brother) and Freakout Cult together with Jayda G. Oh, and he’s also partly responsible for the best mixtape series known to humankind, Trushmix.

    DJ FATI (CA)/ & DJ JESE / & TOMA KAMI (FR)

    RAMZi aka DJ FATi

    Bring to mind Middle American indigenous people who travel to India (stopping by Congo on the way for a couple of French lessons), then decide to set off on a space odyssey, where they encounter beings with rudimentary effect units, then come back to earth to form a band. That’s what RAMZi’s music sounds like; weird and twisted, yet familiar and comforting at the same time, “twopikal bounce” in her own words. RAMZi aka DJ FATi does her live sets under the former and DJ sets under the latter moniker. Originally from Canada, DJ FATi’s aka Phoebé Guillemot’s wings have recently caught wind after a few years of idiosyncratic releases on labels like Mood Hut, RVNG Intl. and 1080p Collection, each time revealing more of her sonic world. In case you were wondering what her DJ sets sound like, add some lush and deep house and some dub into the mix and you’re getting close.

    Toma Kami

    First introduced to electronic music during his formative years in Paris, it was after being involved in the party landscapes of London, Berlin and Shanghai that Toma Kami started to shape his signature aesthetic through his own label Man Band. The influence of these diverse scenes are an apparent factor in his dj sets, combining UK rhythms and electro with deep tropical atmospheres. As a producer he’s been championing his own sound of disjointed beats and swirling percussions through several releases on his own imprint, which also caught the attention of Bristol’s Banoffee pies.

The german DJ honed his craft playing long sets at venues like Club Der Visionaere and Hoppetosse with selections that make him stand apart from most others. What truly makes him special though is that in addition to being an avid digger, he has the ability to churn out exquisite tracks, from subtle to explosive. Take for example the 2014 release, Basic Trance Induction, and compare it to his latest on the Japanese imprint Cabaret Recordings. Binh has been deejaying for well over a decade now, enjoying the local hero status in Berlin for quite a while. In recent years though he’s become a favorite of groove-lovers around the world.

D.Tiffany is able to take basic dance music elements, bleepy tones, lush pads, breaky drums, and make tasty 90stechno-jungle stew out of them. This young canuck’s productions have found homes on well regarded labels like 1080p Collection, Pacific Rhythm and more recently on Planet Euphorique, a label she started earlier this year. D.

    SPEKKI WEBU (NL) / & DENZEL

    Almost every human culture in history has had a fascination for altered states of consciousness. Percussive rhythms and shamanic chants around a bonfire have been one way to tap into another way of being. The modern equivalent is perhaps a dance floor. That’s where Spekki Webu works his magic, whether it’s in the context of a slow and chuggy 4-to-the-floor beat, or chopped up amen breaks skipping along a 170 bpm sub rumble. Bongos, congas, and marimbas, Spekki’s music is here to make you tune in and remember. In addition to expanding your mind on the floor, he runs a label called Mirror Zone. It’s only one release deep but is surely one to lookout for in der zukunft. That was made clear after reissuing Beneath A Different Sun, a 1994 twelve inch from UK producer Memphis, who only ever put out three EPs between 1992 and 1994.

They’re part of the new generation of Helsinki deejays who've been raised in the post 2010 Helsinki nightlife with some 8 years of experience behind the decks and 5 years of throwing parties. Musically they’re quite hard to pin down, adjusting to the mood of the party, rather than having a specific style of their own. However, you are likely to hear disco, electro, house and techno, new and old. Also lots of bongos and congas to get your primitive freak on.

Unbothered by tempo changes and genre jumps, her DJing resembles more the work of a painter. But don't us wrong, she is more than able to make people dance, albeit maybe in a different manner than usual. There’s a sense of tongue in cheek in play here, which makes her sets highly fun. There's also a a feeling of anticipation while listening to her play, wondering where she will go next with the three turntables in front of her. “Another nice mess” is how she describes it. This one's for adventurous souls.

The parties however tend to be more for those who know, throwing small events in off-locations. In his own words, this night for Post Bar might see him delve into his collection of releases from Hessle Audio, Bonzai and Music From Memory to name a few.

    Jerome

    Growing up in Alsace, Jerome’s selection has somehow never shaken off the conflicted Franco-German mindset of his birthplace. Oscillating early on between stoner beats ala Mo’ Wax, geeky IDM and b-boy oriented disco, while nurturing Dutch electro noirceur and Perlon-style minimalism behind the scene. The chaotic eclecticism of the beginnings has slowly turned into a coherent storytelling based on tonality, emotion and message rather than genre. Expect anything between dad rock, traditional folk songs, french chanson, 90s electronica, jazz-funk, sluggish goth disco and hazy garage house.

He’s perhaps best known from the infamous MK54 crew and is 1/4 of the Post Bar Posse. He's also a key player in organizing Retriitti, the annual party held at the medival castle of Raasepori.

The legendary club Zanzibar in New Jersey also comes to mind. These are of course said only through the speculative lens of the imagination of a person who wasn’t there. However, it is clear that this mysterious German latches onto a certain kind of organicretroeuphoric feeling, blending tracks in a way that makes them feed each other.

    Jokki

    With his words always ready and his record bag always packed, Jokki is here to ensure you have a good time. To hell with your obsessive thoughts about your own insufficiency. A member of the beloved Better Things To Do collective, and somewhat of a father figure at a certain UG spot*, Jokki will have you in his sweet embrace in no time.

    Marju

    Marju cut her teeth organizing parties at a certain UG spot* and throwing events of her own at other spots. Soon enough she realised she couldn’t resist getting into deejaying, and we’re glad she couldn’t. Marju is one of the more passionate new DJs to have emerged in Helsinki, with a focus on deeper shades of house and a love for vinyl.

    DEA BARANDANA (ID) / & POLANCO (SE)

    Dea Barandana https://soundcloud.com/dea-barandana

    When one thinks about Bali, first things to come to mind are surfing and that friend of yours who left there for a year and came back woke. Bali has a well kept secret though, and that secret is Dea. This guy has to be the funkiest person on the island. Even Gilles Peterson is a fan. So much so that Dea has by now played at numerous venues around Europe despite being a relatively unknown name. But selection speaks for all, and oh Dea lord what a selection it is, sourced from record shops in Indonesia and all over Europe. Dea holds a residency and is partly responsible for the musical direction at Bali’s Potatohead Beach Club. He has also created Indonesia’s only audiophile space, Studio Eksotika, using the knowledge he gathered from studying audio engineering and sound design in London as a young fellow.

    Polanco https://soundcloud.com/polanco

    Love Potion is arguably the coolest thing to happen in Stockholm night life in recent years. It’s a party series and digital label established by Polanco, who together with his partners Nadja Chatti and Hugo organize wonderful parties in interesting locations anywhere in Stockholm. Latest party series was held on a rooftop in the city’s centre. Love Potion’s dedicated following and not-too-conventional approach in lineup curation keeps the vibe right and the music tight. Polanco himself is a lover of the groove, the soul, the funk, playing anything from recent danish house to Theo Parrish to early 80s disco and synth workouts. A perfect fit for warming up Dea.

    Bernard Horn https://soundcloud.com/bernardhornmusic

    Bernard Horn is not an heir apparent. Neither is he an investment banker. He’s a noble gentleman from the land of the Swedes, Stockholm to be exact. Raised in a musical family, Bernard switched his guitar for two turntables and a mixer in his early adolescence. Lying about his young age, he held a residency at Berns Gallery 2:35:1, which took him further into the underground dance music scene of Stockholm. Musically Bernard operates in the murky waters of minimalistic and techy house, often throwing in more classic leaning variants of the genre as well. Think labels like Slow Life, Imprints, Regelbau and Time Passages to name a few. Expect to hear more from this fine young dude in the future.

    Regional, national, global, galactic, universal (consciousness). Welcome to the program. With X I N L O I you get the impression that music is an extension of his persona. Whether he’s making deep and undefinable faux pop and ambient music as YSI or producing narcotic beats for rap artist Gracias, his output always feels genuine and and well-thought. Shamanic drums and eerie synths tend to be a hallmark for X I N L O I’s sound, transcending listeners through effective loops and subtle changes. It's the type of techno that pulls you in without you realising it.

    A music lover first and foremost, music is to Katerina like water is to Earth. She was a highly active figure in the Helsinki scene for over 10 years, working with Lil Tony at venues such as Kaiku and Ääniwalli. After moving to Berlin a few years ago and later to Sofia, Katerina was finally able to concentrate on making music, rather than facilitating it for others. Indeed, her first EP will be out mid September on Matias Aguayo’s oddball label Cómeme while her radio show Émotsiya has steadily been gaining notoriety.

    Sansibar https://soundcloud.com/sunnysibar

    Helsinki’s prince of electro has been creating music in bands since his early teens and to this day he still maintains a healthy dose of monikers, SPS and C.O.P to name a few. His retrofuturistic rhythms under the Sansibar alias have recently been gaining a reputation outside of Finland, finding a place in sets from the likes of JASSS, Helena Hauff and Textasy. Sansibar also hosted the Émotsiya radio show with Katerina when it was still on Radio Helsinki.

    Sapphire Slows(JP) / & Yu Su(CN) / & J.Lindroos

    Sapphire Slows https://soundcloud.com/sapphire-slows

    While her own music could be described as Casio techno/ghostly ambient/weird pop music, her DJing is more straightforward, though only slightly. Her track selections ten to be quirky and heady, laced with eerie melodies and intricate rhythms. One might detect a krautyness to the whole thingy. There’s a sense of subtle inertia and conflicted delight; sustained yet rarely released.

    Yu Su https://soundcloud.com/yu_su

    A few years ago Yu Su moved from China to Vancouver for her studies and eventually stumbled upon the (in)famous Mood Hut parties. You might hear the influence of those hazy nights in her own productions and DJ sets: warm, percussive, a bit jazzy and a bit wonky but always inviting; soul music from the 21st century ツ By now she has put out a couple of strong releases; one on Arcane and the other on Washington DC favourite, People’s Potential Unlimited.

    One of the most notable experimental labels of the past few years, Lullabies for Insomniacs, started out as a nocturnal radio show, airing 2-6 AM once every fortnight in Melbourne. Its creator, Izabel, spent 18 months endlessly scouring for music, which laid the groundwork for the label afterwards. The music shifts between shamanic musical interpretations, ghostly chimes, swelling waves, odd rhythms, new age bliss and bad trips. It’s somewhat in line with what Izabel would play out. You can hear some afro synth jazz stuff, brazilian rhythms, and techno in the mix as well, all tied together by a distinct dreamlike quality that Izabel is able to capture so well with the label.

This time it’ll be a bit different though, as he’s going to perform a whole two hours at our hazy basement because he feels that one hour is simply not enough for proper sound-exploration; just when you really start getting into it, it’s time to stop. He’s also taking Antero, one of our light guys, along with him on this journey. Expect a mixture of quirky house and tropical techno (or something like that).

Artist of the month

Landys Roimola

Landys Roimola, (born 1992, Bogota) is a sculptor, who is concerned about the growing problem with waste and recycling. Her sculptures are at the same time relatable, strange and beautiful – like misunderstood creatures that have been pulled from another universe. Dominated by the material, and with some unexpected results along the way, the waste gets a new life in Roimola’s hands. The way she used trash as a material grasps the ruthless reality of our time. Reusing and organizing of spurned materials brings out a possibility of hope.

Landys describes the work done for Post Bar: “Working with actual materials is very different from working with 2D surface but I wanted to reach the same feeling of uncomfortableness with this graphic as with my sculptures. The disturbing creature in the artwork got a human kind form and it is watching your back as well as its own.”

Artist of the month

Toni Halonen

Toni Halonen is a visual artist currently based in Helsinki. His works plays with the moment when an representational image starts to break up in to an abstract picture plane. He has been exhibited and published in various countries internationally and currently continues he’s studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki.

Toni describes the work done for Post Bar: “Its interesting that at least for me an abstract image tends to feel like an actual portrait when it is in the portrait format. Thats why I guess I tend to work more in the landscape size. For this work I tried to step out of my ways, embrace this and accept the feeling of an abstract portrait. In a way I guess we could call it a post portrait…”

Artist of the month

Risto Kujanpää

In his work, Risto’s sympathies lie somewhere in between language, symbols and abstract shapes. Based mostly in The Hague, Netherlands he studies graphic design at the Royal Academy of Art, KABK. Some day he will finish a typeface.

Risto describes the work done for Post Bar: “I was thinking how it feels like to be in the mix. To witness two tracks merging together one after another.”

Artist of the Month

Irene Suosalo

Irene Suosalo is a Helsinki based visual artist with a background in photography and moving image. In her work she uses a scanner with various different materials from paper to everyday objects to create images that lie somewhere between figurative and abstract. In addition to still imagery she recently started working as a video jockey for nightclubs and festivals by bringing the scanner works to life. She is also interested in playing with light by creating light installations.

Irene describes the work done for Post Bar: “I chose the colors and hand movement but after that the process was all trial and error. Eventually the images came to be something modern but retro and it felt right.”
