LEO (LEMON SLIDE / CLUB KOOMA) - DOKUMENTTI / A DOCUMENTARY
A documentary on a familiar Freakdance-face: Mr. Leo (Lemon Slide, Club Kooma) - a Finnish suomisaundi-style trance musician and electronic music producer, who has his own unique and somewhat psychedelic view on the world. He's not a bit ashamed to express his opinions out loud. On the contrary: he invites the viewers of this mini-documentary to a 10-minute trip inside his own separate reality with a warm-hearted laughter.

FREAKDANCE RECORDS SUBLABEL "FREAKROOTS RECORDS" LAUNCHED!
NEW SALAKAVALA & MORE HIPPIE KILLER STUFF NOW IN STOCK!
Please welcome FreakRoots Records - our brand new sub-label!
It's been 10 years of Freakdance Records, and the party sure ain't over yet! On the contrary - we decided to launch a sublabel concentrating on audio curiosities from Finland outside the suomisaundi trance music spectrum.
Sure, it's the material is going to be a lot different compared to our previous catalogue (hence the sublabel) but still served with a hefty spugedelick pinch. The first release is coming as a limited-edition Super Jewel Box CD and 12" vinyl with unique artwork in each copy (limited to 200 pcs!), out in Finland and available worldwide from the webshop on November 30th (pre-orders begin Nov 15th).
Check out the FreakRoots Records website (more stuff to the site coming soon!), join FreakRoots Records @ Facebook or listen to the first digital single from the upcoming "Nummiranta & Takahahmot" debut album:
Hippie Killer Productions proudly presents the long awaited 2nd album of Suomi sound master duo Salakavala. Unusual Conditions takes the listeners into a mad journey through the trademark freeflow sound of Finnish production with ten new tracks.
Unusual Conditions is a must-have for all the lovers of the twisted acid Suomi Psy out there, and even the nightime diggers and those appreciating the highly psychedelic speed ride will find pleasurable edges from the new album of Salakavala, the roots of their sound being twined into vast variety of electronic music. The sound of Unusual Conditions is produced by Tommy Lauhiala & Toni Sorsa, the guys behind the name of Salakavala. The album is mastered by Jasse Kesti, one of the most prominent sound engineers in Finland whose magic touch can be heard on numerous albums.
Tommy Lauhiala and Toni Sorsa have been active members of the underground scene since the millennium and their sound has created mad dance floor action all around the world in the past ten years. These guys operate with a highly uncommercial attitude combining all sort of music in their sound and their extremely dance floor orientated production is mixed with a healthy dose of the most important ingredients of the psychedelic music: acid, funk and special kind of humor found only in the music made in the deep forests of Finnish nature.
>>> Get the album from our Web Shop <<<
ALSO BACK IN STOCK: PAVEL SVIMBA - SPACE BABUSKA (HKPCD06, CD Digipak).
Only a small bunch, so get yours quick.

TEKNISET DEBUT ALBUM "TEKNICAL PROBLEMS"
FINALLY COMING OUT ON SEPTEMBER 16TH, 2011!
YEARS OF WAITING IS OVER - BRACE YOURSELF FOR TEKNICAL PROBLEMS!
TEKNISET is a collaboration between two suomisaundi old-timers, Huopatossu Mononen (synths & sequencer, guitar, vocals) and Rick Timebees of Shiwa 2000 (synths & sequencer, percussion, vocals).
The group was originally formed in 2004 when the two wrote exclusive soundtrack music for the Finnish shockumentary movie "Riot On!" (2004). You can also find released tracks from Tekniset on Japanese NullZone and Russian Hippie Killer compilations.
The duo is also well known for their wild live shows where live instruments, vocals and percussion are combined with their ethno-folk influenced electronic dance music. Their shows are also often accompanied by guest performers and musicians. Tekniset has been creating fresh tracks and touring extensively during the 7 years preceding this album release. They have performed in various international music events in countries such as Germany, Israel, Russia, Ukraine and Belgium, in addition to an extensive list of performances within Finland at nearly all main trance/electronica events.
WATCH OUT FOR THE GARDEN GNOME!
TEKNICAL PROBLEMS is the long-awaited and widely-begged exciting debut album from Tekniset and also marks the eighth release from the Finnish alternative electronic music label Freakdance Records. It is also an intriguing mixture of ethnic, folk and classical music from around the world, combined into a nearly unimaginable melting pot of electronic dance music with electro, psy trance and break-beat influences.
The entity really can't be described apart from the fact that the listener will surely realize it is something that can only originate from the deep forests of Finland. The creation process of the debut album has also been as long as the career of Tekniset itself.
The tracks for the album have been carefully selected and polished throughout the past years for pristine production quality and to provide a widescreen view for the listener into the enchantingly bizarre and often unpredictable world of Tekniset.
Some of the songs date back to the origins of the group itself and have later been re-mixed and re-recorded along with top-notch guest musicians playing live instruments, such as Jimi Python on electric violin, Olli Rautiainen (Plutonium 74) on accordion, Olli Kari (Hidria Spacefolk, Uzva, Frank Zappa Memorial Pancake Breakfast Band) on vibraphone and marimba, Sju Shutanen (Kuukunanmunat) on flute, as well as many others. Jump in the 74-minute rollercoaster ride and get ready to blow up your circuitry - It’s time for TEKNISET!
!!! OUT ON SEPTEMBER 16TH, 2011!
!!! PRE-ORDERS @ FREAKDANCE WEB SHOP START SEPTEMBER 1ST, 2011 -
SPECIAL BONUSES INCLUDED IN THE FIRST 100 PCS !!!
Check out our web shop to purchase this title (we start taking pre-orders in late August).

OIKEUSJYVÄ DEBUT ALBUM "HUOMENTALLY UNSANE" AVAILABLE NOW!
SPRING SALE IS HERE!!
As it´s near christmas, its good time to ask what is common between Santa Claus and Oikeusjyvä. Well, they were both born in Finland, the first one way before the latter one, but anyway they both have lived under the same blue sky, around the same white snow and in the same nightless summer nights. Other common nominator is that they bring a present for you in Christmas. But when Santa will bring present to every good girl and a boy, Oikeusjyvä will present his gift for all the freaks out there who are willing to expand their psy minds into groovy acid universe of Finnish dance music.
Oikeusjyvä`s debut Huomentally Unsane features 12 tracks of awakening beats and psychedelic fast traveling with melodic passages. The album echoes influences from old Goa sound and have resemblance with the production made in Australia and in this sense is a perfect Christmas present for all the lovers of pure psychedelia and fancy dance floor funkyness.
Oikeusjyvä is a one-man project by producer Jukka Surakka. Huomentally Unsane is released by Russian label Hippie Killer Productions, known for their quality Finnish dance music. Oikeusjyvä has releases as well on Antiscarp Records and Adama Records.
For sound clips of this album, check out Hippie Killer Productions website.
Freakdance Web Shop has a spring sale and we've cut the price on our own titles by more than 30%! Check out the store at:

SHIWA 2000: PORTINFARTTIJAN HYPPYPIERTARI - IN WEB SHOP NOW!
Shiwa 2000~ Portinfarttijan Hyppypiertari
Hippie Killer Productions proudly presents the last chapter of "Shiwa 2000" trilogy. The Finns and Russians have been doing wondrous things for the twenty-first century psychedelic music scene. These form a regional trance subculture notorious for pouring their characteristically energetic style into their music. "Portinfarttijan Hyppypiertari" by Shiwa 2000 is the quintessential illustration of this blooming movement.
A combination of audio magus Rick Timebees and Tim Thick , these two Finns represent decades of musical know-how and expertise. This latest album is the culmination of a trilogy of project releases, and with artists like this behind the controls, one can expect nothing less than the best; Crisp, crystal clear production and engineering, arrangement masterworks of dynamic contrast, and a sound style as much a deviation from as a forger of a blossoming genre of music. "Shiwa 2000" has been described as the glue that binds together a musical saga. What an amalgam it is, as well.
Fifteen tracks chock full of groove show off the versatility of its makers to the finest degree. Borrowing from and expounding on oodles of theory and style, the groove never stops and never grows static. Soundscapes which seem to go completely bonkers never spill a drop of their dancefloor readiness, sticking you into scene upon scene of dust-kicking fervor.
These innovators have done their job admirably, for it is truly hard to put a label on this album, or what the Shiwa 2000 sound has evolved into. It can aptly be described as a completely new kind of animal, and a highly recommended must-listen. Released upon equally innovative Russian label Hippie Killer Productions, also known for its tireless effort, attention to musical detail, and ear for the highest quality, Portinfarttijan Hyppypiertari has all the makings of a twenty first century, ear electrifying collectors item.
For sound clips of this album, check out Hippie Killer Productions website.
