Pavel Svimba project saw daylight in the year of 2006. «I just wanted to learn how to write tracks from start to end by myself,
so I started writing tracks under name Pavel Svimba, the project name itself is an inside joke» says Joonas.

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.

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.

Hippie Killer Productions presents debut album from "Okta"
Okta is one of the projects by Finnish producer Marlo Snellman. The Okta sound has been in a constant yet unpredictable state of research and development since 2002, and today, as his debut project album, "Kyseesh" illustrates, great emphasis is placed upon experimentalism, classification-defying fusions of style, and heavy doses of smiles and fun. These sounds strive not to take themselves too seriously, and the result is a free-flowing progression of timeless music which goes where it may and invites you along for a smile inducing digital journey built to be experienced in a dance friendly setting.
Marlo, under the "Okta" project, has to date performed over 50 acclaimed performances across Russia and Europe. His main musical influences have been his extensive collection of old records which span the genres and eras of music, as well as rare, vintage analogue synth instruments, which these days are often imitated and almost never duplicated, but serve to enrich and power his sound with a sort of vibration even the most jaded aficionado and hardened dancer can easily wrap their brains and toes around. Okta's sound has already built up a tried and true reputation for creativity and innovation, and soon the rest of the world will also recognize, understand, and enjoy.
Track By Track:
Kyseesh A cartoony, screamingly psychedelic intro launches straight into a soupy bass beat that is fresh and funky.
House and Psytrance influences mix juices and pepper each other with voice bits and glitchy leads.
Masterful musical breakdowns transform into mood altering organic meltdown.
The percussion begins slow and easy as the synths take main stage, painting pictures of mind-mapping waveforms.
The meat of this track is sultry and earthy.
Clean guitar strings couple with digital lead tremolos and glassy effects built for outdoor daylight rump-shaking pleasure.
Fixx Picking the tempo up to a jog, next comes "Fixx".
The bass is fresh and uplifting while the upper frequencies imply foresty sound environs laced with guitar and wah pedal licks.
Watery pad delays roll in like a tide and provide necessary push into sixteenth-note arpeggios guaranteed to tickle.
Amy Rock This track seems to be a child of the discotheque and early 80's-era children's shows.
Glassy effects and pepper shaker style percussion give your body a dose of vertical motion.
Plenty of atmospheric rearrangements ensure your feet won't get bored in this psychedelic pub-crawl of a track.
Runnit Carefully placed note and drum arrangements give this piece intensity beyond its tempo.
Brilliant segments of brass and piano coupled with evolving baselines bring this track alive inside your eardrums.
Hectic layers and crisp usage of effects ice this cake with sweetness your body craves.
Adopted Filter The short intro sketches a quick sonic horizon before the heavily percussive body sequence begins.
This track is perfect for both indoor settings and out with a dynamic contrast of grumbling voice bits and acid-tinged leads.
Rhythm induced stabs and screaming saw waves add further to the rhythm.
Raaq This track is at once hair-raising and foot tickling.
Squared-off saw bass makes for robotic electro undercurrents while time-stretched stabs and pads work their magic above.
The low frequencies descend into a cats-putt while oscillating mid frequencies continue to cut through your synapses.
Tomita A rolling bass line is the trampoline for squishy sounds above.
Unpredictable background voices add chaos to the rhythmic order of the disco hits and ever pattering high hats.
A bit of low frequency distortion delivers drive until the next sonic arrangement of electro moods which breathe with you.
Shopping A ping ponging rhythm winds its way into your neurons before a crisp sub bass snakes between your toes.
Multitudes of ever changing sound layers seem like an arcade of sounds both childishly familiar and otherworldly new and fresh.
This track spans an era of wonderfully relatable electronica.
Have A Coke And A Smile Get ready for a short yet sweat inducing aerobic workout in this two minute interlude between the sonic mayhem.
A great into to a variety of playlists or a refreshing, eye opening pause between bouts of electric anarchy,
this two minute arrangement shows the artists talent and diversity.
McPussy & Delicious This track has perhaps one of the most innovative and unique beginnings of a track released in the genre in recent years.
Following up is an easy going arrangement of break beat, descending bass envelopes,
and paradoxical rhythm stabs and obscurely melodic squelching and whistles.
Number 11 From the outset, this track is catchy and groovy, and within a minute, your head is nodding and your feet are tapping the floor.
Masterful background reverbs make way for Goa influences of foreground melody.
The broken bass is thick and the evolving distortion heightens the tension nicely.
Yaros Palace A salsa-style Caribbean drumbeat marches you into a suomi-electro segment.
Saxophone and saw lead synth play off each other Staccato pads which build into a new wave of sounds similar and new to round out this track's second half,
with the vocals topping this cake with a cherry of sonic flavour.
Tink The finale to this diverse and eclectic album opens with highly experimental, organic synths.
A bouncy bass line propels you upward with the friendliness of a trampoline.
Effects scattered amongst the panorama add dimension to timelessly classic electronic smile-inducing melody.
