Being middle class and Scandinavian prepares one for a bleak future. However two Helsinki DJs, Downtown and Jaxxon, made it through the jungle, although without house music they would already be dead or in lower management – or both. Their collaborative project Renaissance Man, is one of the highlights of Turku Modern, a new electronic music festival in Finland. Hailing from the new breed of Helsinki club survivors, they bless the world with a mixture of all things kick drum and a sophisticated and novel conception of contemporary dance music. Their track “Rythym” is on the recently released Kitsuné Maison 7 compilation and their brilliant Aloha EP was put out in June by Sound Pellegrino.
