These two dudes from Finland known as Renaissance Man are absolutely killing it right now. Making onto everyone whos anyones playlist over the last while they show no signs of stopping! Heres the score in their words.
Being middle class and Scandinavian prepares one for a bleak future. However two Helsinki DJ's, Downtown and Jaxxon, made it through the jungle, although without house music they would already be dead or in lower management - or both. Hailing from the new breed of Helsinki club survivors they bless the world with a mixture of all things kick drum and an idea fused into their concept of contemporary dance music.
In 2008 as a start of their creative collaboration they treated Helsinki with their monthly night NOW! bringing over such contemporaries as Boy 8-Bit, Radioclit, Duke Dumont, Mowgli and Zombie Disco Squad. That led to a fruitful production collaboration from which Spraycan, the first track they produced together, created immediately a fuzz behind the scenes of club land and started getting support from the likes of Switch, Duke Dumont, Brodinski, Riva Starr and their fellow Scandinavians Tomboy & Fredski. It is now being released in early 2009 on Switch's influential Dubsided imprint. Alongside filling numerous remix requests The EP is immediately followed by another one on Teki Latex' and DJ Orgasmic's label Sound Pellegrino bringing a bunch of ideas to the table that will change the face of dance music forever (with a 75% probability).
