1. Renaissance Man

[Made To Play / Sound Pellegrino / Dubsided :: Helsinki & Berlin]

Welcome, Renaissance Man !

This is what the boys from Finland say about themselves:

“… We, two lovers of the arts, science, sports, languages, funk and techno, are Renaissance Man – a platform for contemporary dance music.

2007 We first met through working in the same architecture office in Helsinki. The office was commissioned to design a club, the number one underground venue in Helsinki, where we as a type of compensation started our own monthly night ..NOW!…

2008 After a year the sound of the night boiled down to a playful and modern sound of house and we started bringing over several international acts we found relevant. Although the night was far from a financial success, inspired by it we started producing our own music together. Renaissance Man was born in the summer of 2008 after we name ourselves self-ironically referring to the culture of multidisciplinary creatives inhabiting our social circle. We got a great kick start when Dave “Switch” Taylor signed our very first track ‘Spraycan’ to his label Dubsided.

2009 After a long wait the ‘Spraycan EP’ came out to much success in April. Soon after it we signed our track ‘Rythym’ to the Kitsune Maison 7 compilation and released a second EP on the ambitious Parisian Sound Pellegrino label. Its title track ‘What Is Guru’ became somewhat of an underground hit. Meanwhile remix requests started to drop and we got rather busy with them. We have remixed this year, amongst others, Brodinski & Noob on Turbo, Crystal Fighters, Delphic, Health and Le Corpse Mince De Francoise.

A mere year after producing our first track together things are looking bright. We relocated to Berlin in June 2009, release our third EP in April 2010 on Made To Play, tour Europe intensively, have shows booked in Australia, New Zealand and China towards the end of the year and have our tracks and remixes played by everybody from Jesse Rose to Tiga to Tomboy to likes of radio giants as Pete Tong and Annie Mac.

So no time for rest as our house has an open plan!”
