I first got wind of SHINE 2009 a few weeks ago and I have to say I like what I hear. The production duo from Helsinki, Finland have a nice sound about them and with their latest track, “Older”, they blur the lines between electronic, pop and drum n bass music almost perfectly in my opinion. The guitar strum led beginning is unequivocally brilliant and hits my attention grabbing bulls-eye straightaway. As the DnB style beats kick in, I am overcome with a sense of weightlessness and freedom that never goes away even after the song ends. There is this cool vibe to “Older” that reminds me a lot of how a Crystal Fighters’ track makes me feel. Like I just want to get up and dance the day and night away letting all my stress and/or problems drop off me like beads of happy sweat. As “Older” echoes in my head at this very moment, I can’t help but think about the line “age is just a number”. And I realize no matter how old I may feel, music like this will always set me free.
SHINE 2009, otherwise known as the impressive project of Sami Suova and Mikko Pykäri, are planning to release their sophomore album ‘Our Nation’ on October 15th. Pick up your copy here!
