Now we turn our eyes towards the east, and the unique musical fountain that is Finland. It must be something in the water…
Mysterious, dark, dedicated to providing the energy to the dance floors she directs, Kristiina Männikkö is a regular at Kaiku in Helsinki, one of the best clubs in Northern Europe, dealing in vinyls of electro, techno, new wave and acid.
From the underground of our fave musical neighbour comes JESSE (Sorry Sweden, but you already knew this…). Tired of fast synth music, they decided to make an esoteric mixture of electronic, prog, afrobeat inspired cosmic funk, drone, ambient. Or as we say – Sauna-wave. Tervetuola!

Kristiina Männikkö and JESSE are presented in collaboration with Turku Modern as part of Up Node – a Nordic Network of festivals for experimental music and sonic arts supported by the Nordic Culture Fund.
