Antti L (Producer & DJ)

Logbook of a producer / DJ Antti L. I compose music, usually house / techno. Mostly deep, sometimes dark, always melancholic sounds from Finland. From this page you can find original compositions and mixes by Antti L, among other things I find inspiring. Whether It's deep jacking grooves, warm rumbling subs, sweet sharp percussion or delicate vocal treatment, It's all here.

Oliver Koletzki meets HR Sinfonieorchester- Mückenschwarm (Live)

I remember hearing this track years ago and how it impressed me. To be honest I’d completely forgotten it, until I suddenly came up with this amazing live version with HR Sinfonieorchester. Most of all this video gave me some good shivers and reminded me why I love music so much.

"The orchestra’s range of musical styles includes the classical-romantic repertoire, discoveries in experimental new music, concerts for children and young people, light classics, and demanding programming concepts."

Lykke Li - Love Me Like I’m Not Made Of Stone

One of the highlights from ‘I Never Learn’ album, which is not as uplifting as her previous work. ‘Love Me Like I’m Not Made Of Stone’ is somewhat acapella track with simple acoustics, so the focus is on the melancholic lyrics.

"In a lot of ways, these songs sound more youthful and naïve than her previous efforts. ‘Love Me Like I’m Not Made of Stone’ has Li sounding like a vulnerable teenager wanting to love and be loved regardless of the consequences: you can practically hear her heartbeat on it"

Isis Salam feat. Kruse & Nuernberg - Let Go

Strong old school hip house vibe on this one with straightforward beat and perfect flow by Isis Salam. If you need something to jam out and get the flow going on, this is the one. Yeah, I do think she’s better than Azealia Banks.

"Flow matches perfectly with the track’s jackin’ bounce — a solid blend of hip-hop and house flavors — which gets even vibier through a new pool-side, booty-poppin’ rework from Azari & III’s Alixander III."

Mano Le Tough - Primitive People (Tale Of Us Remix)

One of my favourite tracks of 2013 remixed by mighty duo Tale Of Us. These guys never seem to fail and their sound is like a breath of fresh air. Hypnotic melody and vocals combined to Tale Of Us trademark bassline sound and beats makes this one a true classic.

"The track’s progression emulates a steady rise of both energy and instrumentation, delicately layering each component atop one another in balanced harmony. Beginning with ethereal sprinkles of xylophone sounds, and later imposing sharp, teasing bass rubs, the track gently ascends to a peak vocal drop."

MØ - XXX 88 ft. Diplo

Maybe it’s because the spring, wonderful horn section or the fact that I’m going to see MØ live in few weeks. Whatever it might be, XXX 88 is great track to cheer you up. Let loose, start living, and stop taking yourself so seriously.

"MØ, as usual, brings her A-game making a corky synth melody sound like the perfect backdrop behind her layered vocals. While it may not sound like it, Diplo adds his musical expertise to the song in the form of production. When reflecting on the song it becomes apparent of the contribution as elements of Diplo’s reggae electronic influence shine."

Maya Jane Coles Feat. Karin Park - Everything

Everything is definitely one of the highlights from the debut album ‘Comfort’. Masterful vocals by Karin Park fits well to rather simple yet effective background.

Like a ghost in the club, Maya’s music brings an incredible ethereal warmth to it while simultaneously sending chills down your back. Maya manages to evoke a cognitive dissonance with her music that at once will shake you to your core while also providing a warmth that could otherwise only come from your mother’s bosom.”

Bonobo - First Fires (feat. Grey Reverend)

Bonobo is one of many artists capable of crafting a widescreen and wholly organic sound in a digital world. Definitely one of my top choices for a lazy sunday chill. 

‘The North Borders is a triumph - each listen is a revelation; seemingly it’s a breadth of work that marks a new, exciting era of electronic music. Certainly, its creator is destined to reach higher plateaus.”

Christian Loeffler feat. Grey - Feelharmonia

Melodic deep house track anchored by a steady four-to-the-floor kickdrum and beautiful vocals by Grey, representing the northern mood.

The video was directed by Ronni Shendar, an Israeli visual artist has previously worked with Glitterbug and Gold Panda. She says of it: “It was clear for me that for Christian Löffler’s new album A Forest I wanted to work with nature. His music, and particularly this album, emanates from the natural world, from a sequestered northern landscape, and I wanted to join him there in its origins.”

David Lynch & Lykke Li - I’m Waiting Here

I have always liked music by David Lynch, maybe even more than movies (much said). The Swedish songstress hypnotic voice fits perfectly for the dreamy ‘modern blues’ style and the video reminds me of Lost Highway.

”Here’s how Lynch has described The Big Dream album: “Most of the songs start out as a type of blues jam and then we go sideways from there. What comes out is a hybrid, modernized form of low-down blues.”

Jon Hopkins - Open Eye Signal

I was totally blown away when I saw the video first time. It is hypnotic ride thru amazing landscapes, a skateboarding odyssey in the desert. Highly recommended to watch full screen.

Immunity is the fourth studio album by English musician and producer Jon Hopkins. It was released on 4 June 2013 by Domino Records to critical acclaim and was nominated for the 2013 Mercury Prize for best album.”

Infinity Ink - Infinity (Original mix)

We all have already heard of this hundreds of times. Infinity was one of the biggest releases in 2012 but have you seen the video, It’s one twisted trip.

"Infinity", is a 2012 song recorded by musical, production and DJ duo Infinity Ink made up of Italian Luca C (full name Luca Cazal) and British Ali Love. The duo Infinity Ink found fame in 2012 through "Games" on Hot Creations label followed quickly by "Infinity" on Crosstown Rebels label, on 14 May 2012.

Boards of Canada - Reach for the Dead

Here is another good example of perfect combination between music and video. Reach for the Dead taken from Boards of Canada - Tomorrow’s harvest album. One of the best releases in 2013.

"The music video for "Reach for the Dead" was directed by Neil Krug, a Los Angeles-based photographer and director who had previously created an unofficial music video for the Boards of Canada song "In a Beautiful Place Out in the Country". The music video features "hazy imagery of a mid-west desert and its anonymous, bleak ghost-town."

Tom Demac - Critical Distance Pt.2

Never heard of Tom Demac before this techno monster. The bassline is heavy and video supports the track perfectly.

"For those unfamiliar with Demac’s work or the man himself, the Dave Grohl looking bastard has an almost unhealthy obsession with avoiding sounding like anyone else. Bored of generic sounds and tracks that lack bite, his productions increasingly sidestep cliche and tread riskier paths — often perverting house and techno frames with a myriad of sounds deftly lifted from other facets of electronic music and beyond."

Tricky - ‘Parenthesis’ feat. The Antlers

After few weaker albums Tricky is back with The False Idols, probably the best album to date. It’s dark, hypnotic, and atmospheric, just the way I like it.

Tricky returns (via his own False Idols label) with some of his stongest material in years. This official video for featured track “Parenthesis” features vocals from Peter Silberman of The Antlers. The False Idols album also features vocals from regular contributor Francesca Belmonte, Nigerian-German singer Nneka and Fifi Rong”
