From the edge of Europe, Finland’s Jori Hulkkonen has never been the one to paint himself in the corner.
With releases in the last two decades exploring 360 degrees on the musical radar, he’s been hailed as “the most underrated producer in the world”,“living legend of electronic composition” and “music’s best kept secret“. Since the debut 12” in 1993, ten artist albums for F Communications and more recently Turbo Recordings, dozens of 12″ singles on some of the world’s hottest labels, and close to a hundred remixes for artists as diverse as Chromeo, Kid Cudi, Robyn, and Lydia Lunch, followed by producing albums for the bands Sister Flo, Villa Nah and NightSatan, and naturally the writing and production work on both Tiga – albums, all qualify as self-explanatory efforts of a passionate music aficionado.
Here, we premiere Jori’s version of Kenny Glasgow‘s “Imagine A World”, which also features the dreamy and alluring vocals of Shanira G. On this version, Jori goes energetic, with spritely drums and widescreen, new wave styled synths stretching in all directions. It’s a classy club cut that will take ‘floors to the next level, for sure.
“Imagine A World” is available 23 march (vinyl)/1 April (digi) on My Favorite Robot Records
