Katso kukkaa, now available in Russia

Copies of the album have been left to Boogie Shop, so altough the album is not listed on the webpage, it should be available from them for 400ryb. So this is over half cheaper than ordering straight from me!

Also, thank you Buddha Project, thank you Walk About Love, thank you Space of Joy for the recent parties! And of course always the brightest rays of love shine on the dancers, who take part in the sharing of energy every time!

Ja Suomessahan Helsingissä levyä saa edelleen Asematunnelin Cyber Shopista 10€ hintaan.

Katso kukkaa price now 1€

OK, I decided to drop the price of the download, so now the album is practically free, and of course if you want the CD, you can pay more (you can also pay more, if you want to secure me an incredibly comofrtable, easy life).

So check out the Bandcamp page for lossless FLAC downloads and also OGG for all high quality portable players!

The new album is proceeding at a good pace, a lot of epic acid goa and roots folk trance flowing out of the analog gear, but more about that later… Next possibilities to hear some of the new sounds coming up in Russia and Israel in the weeks soon to come :)

Oh, and there’s the Walk About Love again, I’ll be there for one week after the Buddha Project party, I welcome all gentle and free spirits to join the odyssey once again!

This spring

I’ll be playing in a very exciting goa party by Buddha Project in Israel with Transwave and Radical Distortion on 26.4. (wow, they even got the Finnish lettering right<g>)

Also, very probably I’ll be at Systo this year again after… What!? Really, five years. Time goes so fast, that festival too feels like yesterday. So, 8.-13.5., this is what’s happening:

Solar-Systo

That’s all for now.

Oh. And working on new music again, so much fun! Goa meets 70s space synthesizer music meets psychedelic folk meets Commodore 64 SID tunes meets italo meets… Whatever! I think this will be a very exciting album indeed ;)

AVP Saves the world… Once again.

altai-horses

On the path between Inegen and Tyungur.

In the past year I flew a few times, and rode buses, trains and cars in order to bring my beats to you, my dear lovely people.

This all is bad mojo for the planet, so it’s again time to offset some of this.

So I paid 50€ to Luonnonperintösäätiö, a non-profit foundation that buys off land for protection in Finland, with the emphasis on old growth forests. While to outsiders Finland may seem like the magical country of old forests and trolls, almost no old forests stand anymore elsewhere than the most northern parts of the country.  In South Finland, less than 0,5% of the forests can be classified as old (150+ years), and only about 5% in the whole country. Here’s a good article about the situation with an English summary by Ilkka Hanski, one of the most (if not the most) respected ecologists of the country.

Also I sent 75$ to The Altai Project, an US based non-profit working under the Earth Island Institute. They do invaluable work in protecting the fragile and unique nature of the magical Altai mountain country.

While this may not be much, it’s still a gesture, and as they say, small streams flow down into big rivers…

The powers against our Mother Earth are strong and relentless, and they will stop at absolutely nothing except the peoples’ unwillingness to let the destruction go on. Just as an example, the location of Khan Altay has now been destroyed completely, and the land around the area is for sale. I had a hard time facing this last winter, my heart just can’t accept the fact that a few powerful individuals can choose to do such things. So, before “the massive tourist potential” of the Altai area is harnessed, there still are possibilities for protecting this unique land. More sad pics from the location are at Dmitry’s blog.
