Darude – More about Darude


Darude (Finnish artist/producer/dj Ville Virtanen) found dance music while he was still in school. He practically gave himself carpal tunnel syndrome by constantly holding his finger on the pause button of a tape deck while trying to catch the latest tunes off his favorite radio show. Darude says his “education” and broad taste in music dates back to those active radio-listening years. He says he gets inspired by other people’s great music, among other things, and I think it’s fair to say that he’s probably inspired a fair share of aspiring djs and electronic musicians himself.
It actually took quite a long time for him to realize that he could one day make music of his own. After a friend showed him what could be done with a regular PC and a simple tracker program, his studies started going downhill and time spent next to the computer increased exponentially. He soon moved on to sound modules and samplers in need of better sounds and more variety. These days he’s combining the best of both hardware and software tools in making music and performing live. He’s considered somewhat of a tech freak wanting to try out the new stuff as soon as he gets his hands on them.

Sydney born Aussie, BeXta has spent her life around music, playing the piano since the age of 9 and writing music since 11.

MUSETTA disk has just arrived, nicely wrapped in a cute- artwork cover. What can I expect, a sugary happy hard core or nu nrg perhaps? I pressed the play button and started writing something and then… ‘Ophelia’s Song started’…

It was surprisingly analogue to what we normally receive. Real instruments with just a touch of lounge, jazz and ambient lead by crisp, well controlled and emotional voice weaving slow but interesting and complex melodies. My favorite part in ‘Ophelia’s Song’, and do not ask why, is when she says “cro-co-diles” so slowly and accentuated as if the word has lost its meaning. The first impression is – I am going to like this.
