Biography

  • Finland's Jori Hulkkonen has never been the one to paint himself in the corner. With releases in the last two decades exploring 360 degrees on the musical radar, he's been hailed as "the most underrated producer in the world", "living legend of elec..
    Since the debut 12" in 1993, ten artist albums for F communications and more recently Turbo recordings, collaborations with people as verstaile as John Foxx, Jose Gonzales, Jesper Dahlbäck (as Kebacid) and Phonogenic (as Discemi), dozens of 12" singles on some of the world's hottest labels, and close to a hundred remixes for artists as diverse as Chromeo, Kid Cudi, Robyn, and Lydia Lunch, followed by producing albums for the bands Sister Flo, Villa Nah and NightSatan, and naturally the writing and production work on both Tiga -albums, all qualify as self-explanatory efforts of a passionate music aficionado. And that's excluding the sideprojects.   Eversince the mid 90's Jori has travelled across the globe as a DJ and played hundreds of clubs and festivals from Australia to Zurich -and every alphabet inbetween -spreading the vibe with his unique blend of house and techno, fuelled by insatiable curiosity about the music's future and profound understanding of its past.   Aside from the more traditional DJ/producer work, in the past couple of years Jori has raised some knowing eyebrows by assembling the Acid Symphony Orchestra, an experimental avantgarde techno ensemble of eleven persons, featuring ten Roland TB-303's, performing a raw score written, conducted and mixed by Jori. In 2009 the project received an approving nod from the highest authority available in the noble form of Ralf Hütter after the Orchestra had warmed up for Kraftwerk.    In 2011 Jori's collaborative efforts with Jerry Valuri, Processory, makes a welcome return with their second album, "Change Is Gradual.", and introduces the debut album with Tania Bowers as The Tania and Jori Continents. 12"s from his dRUMMAN-guise and new material as Jori Hulkkonen are in the works.

The Exact Distance from Here to the Sun According to Me - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - JORI HULKKONEN: ERRARE MACHINALE EST (F COMMUNICATIONS) Double Vinyl, Digital and Limited edition Finland-only CD, 2008 Running order may vary depending on the format. 1 Gentlemen Prefer Laser (written and produced by jori hulkkonen) I was asked to write the themesong for the latest issue in a series of a very successful videogame, and I opted to try something very John Carpenterish. I have this beautifulsounding russian analoguesynth Faemi M1 with which I played the maintheme. Eventually somebody else got the job, but when i was going thru all the stuff while preparing the new album I realized the potential of the track, and finished it off. 2. Errare Machinale Est feat Justine Electra (music by jori hulkkonen, vocals by justine electra. produced by jori hulkkonen) One of the ideas I had for the album was to create a chronological musical autobiography; ie starting off with music infuenced by what I was listening in the early 80's and finishing off with the kind of music I'm into now. That's not how the album eventually turned out but there's some evidence buried there which indicates this was more than a random whim. On EME I tried to create some Vince Clarke-oriented sequences, not-so-tight tape-edits, while Justine's beautifully deadpan vocals then push it towards Kraftwerkette-ism. It's the first time I have a female vocal on a Jori Hulkkonen -record, and I'm very proud it's Justine. It's also one of the most analogue-sounding tracks i've done. It features roland sh-5 on bass, korg ps-3100 on strings, and my doepfer modular with it's 8-bit sampling module that's playing the 'guitar' riff, just to name a few synths. 3. Never Been Here Before feat John Foxx (music by jori hulkkonen, vocals by john foxx. produced by jori hulkkonen) After Dislocated (Dualizm 2005) I wasn't sure if I wanted to make another track with John Foxx, as I felt we couldn't top it. However, as I was working on the album I realized that it'd be kind of stupid NOT to work with him if he was still up for it -and he was. Where Dislocated had been very much my homage to the Metamatic-sound, NBHB is far removed from that and sounds quite different. The track is based on the idea of drawing an Aalto-vase on a graphic sequencer, which results the piano and it's counteracting synth. I like the fact that it actually doesn't have a bassline. 4. Forgive Me Father For I Have Synth feat Ebb (written and produced by jori hulkkonen) I had recorded this track very early on when doing the album with my own vocals, and I really liked it. It's a very simple song, but there's something very special about it, and I can't really put my finger on what it is. I had just finished a remix for this swedish guy Ebb, and asked for a vocal contribution in return for my album, as I really liked his voice. This is such an easy track to listen to, whatever that means. 5 Synthetic Ballad Of Charles Darwin feat Jimi Tenor (written and produced by jori hulkkonen) This was probably the most difficult track on the album to finish. I had written the song with just the TR-808 and a piano with my own vocals and was very happy with it; it took me only maybe an hour to get the songwriting finished, with lyrics and everything. The same night I made it I sent the demo mp3 to Jimi Tenor and asked him to resing it, and he did a great job. After that things got a bit tricky as the were so many directions the track could've taken. I think I have at least three distinctively different versions of it. This version is the most fitting for the album, but there are some more rhythmic and less abstract mixes as well. 6. Mere Vehicles (Written and produced by jori hulkkonen) The dance track. Eventhough I wanted to make an album far removed from the dancefloors, I still wanted to have at least one track that would fit the DJ sets I was playing at the time of recording. Obviously on the album there are some other DJ-friendly tracks too, but this has musically no other ambitions than to work on the floor -which, I am happy to report, it does. 7. Character feat Jerry Valuri (written and produced by jori hulkkonen) This is a strange track. It features a couple of leftover ideas from an unreleased remix I did a few years ago (I won't give you any names), and initially I had written a very different vocal for it, intended for Nick Triani. In the back of my head I wasn't convinced though, and kept coming back to the track to try to figure out why. Eventually I just took the track apart and rebuilt it, wrote a new vocal this time with Jerry's falcetto in mind. After recording the vocals I still felt it needed something and I ended doing the second part of the song, with a different bassline and using samples of Jerry's vocal. It feels very balanced now. 8. The Descent Of Man feat Nick Triani (written and produced by jori hulkkonen) This is a pretty advanced piece of music at least on my scale. Starting off as uptempo synthpop with a bit of a rough feel, building to euphoric pop with all those oohs and aahs, evolving into a sparse minimalistic piano piece before climaxing on nauseating modularsynth drones -with a running time of over thirteen minutes. It completes the Triani-trilogy in quite a spectacular way. It seems to divide people quite effectively too, it's either their absolutely favourite track on the album, or their least favourite. 9. Titans feat Ernesto (music by jori hulkkonen, vocals by jonathan bäckelie. produced by jori hulkkonen) When I wrote the basic track with the acoustic guitar for this I knew it needed a great vocal. I had been in touch with this Swedish guy Ernesto and he said he'd like to try something. I liked his voice so I just sent him an instrumental mp3 and what i got back from him only a couple of days later just blew my mind. It was a very easy track to finish, the perfect last track for the album. bonustrack Customs Person feat Jerry Valuri (written and produced by jori hulkkonen) This wasn't meant for the album. It was actually one of the first tracks I recorded after I had finished the album proper, the nine tracks above. At some point we thought that some digital bonustracks might be in place so i dug this up. Originally with my own vocal, and more guitar oriented production I had some vague idea of doing a lo-fi pop pseudonymrelease with my own vocals. I redid some bits for this version and had Jerry re-sing it, although I kept my original vocals as backing vocals. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Processory - Processory ZYX/Playground/2007 LP/CD 1.

Blue & White "Regarding the title of my new album, "Different" was the very first idea I had for the record when I started to work on it in August 2001. I wanted a short, simple name, as opposed to the monster that I had on my previous effort. Also, I wanted it to reflect the record itself, firstly on a very simple and naivistic level; the tracks are different tracks than the ones on the previous album, but also something that would hopefully give an idea that my musical approach really is different compared to many other house/techno/electronic producers, and hence the album is a different kind of a "club record" -if it is such at all." "The album itself was recorded during a period of eight months -a rather long period especially when compared to my previous work, but during this time my schedule was very hectic due to busy DJing. I made around 25 new tracks for the album before coming up with the right tracklisting. During the recording of the abum I was also actively working on the artwork, having my camera with me on my travels, from Hong Kong to New York." "I'm not sure if I feel comfortable with giving a desciption of the tracks, as the music should be self-explanatory. However, if reading these comments makes the music more approachable or even better, makes someone interested in my music, I see no harm in briefly giving the story behind each track" -We Are Rising Sun "The last track to be finished on the album. I've always had the idea that the first track should define the atmosphere of an album, act as a kind of a moodsetter. I had already done one track to be the opener but in the end I realized it just didn't do justice for the rest of the record (the track was called "Styrkkarit Laukee", and it will be available on the F communications Megasoft Office series. Note the street noise which is the same on these two tracks) ." "Basically the first 60 seconds of an album should convince the listener that the record WILL be worth listening, every single second of it. The idea behind the track was to do something a bit psychedelic in feel, give the listener the idea that he's stepping to a world that is different from the previous album." "The street noise is just from outside my window. The idea came from the Pet Shop Boys' "West End Girls" intro, which also gave me the idea of using a trumpet later on in the song, and the vocal treatment (hardcore ptchshifting) was inspired by the Pet Shop Boys' track Violence." "This is one of the three tracks on the album to feature Jerry Valuri on vocals. These tracks are his debut appearences as a vocalist. I've known him for around six years now, and we're good friends. And I like working with friends. He also has a deep understanding of what kind of music I want to do so what he might lack in his vocal technique, he can compensate with pure style and emotion. He's also my mailman." -Man From Solaris "Originally recorded for "We Are Being Watched", a remix EP of some of the tracks from my previous album. It was only after popular demand that I decided to include it here. It was the first work I did with Jerry Valuri. I like the atmosphere of the track and they way it builds up musically." -You're My Excuse For Being Me "This was the first track I made after I had made the conscious choice to start working on a new album, in August 2001. I've always loved using strings, and I was obsessed in doing a song with a very strong stringbased melody. It also defined the direction of the album. Originally it featured an extra part, a chorus if you will, with a vocal intended for it. Also, later I recorded some vocals for this version with Paul Oxley (with whom I worked on "Contaminated" on my previous album). For some reason they just made the track unbalanced in a way, and I decided to leave it as an instrumental. It also features a few spoken bits in Finnish, narrated by Yours Truly." -Abstract Living "Initially intended for my previous album, but it just didn't fit the mood, and I also couldn't finish it. So, as I went thru some old files and unfinished tracks -as always when I work on new stuff and bump into a writer's block -I found this to have the potential to make it to this album, and I also found the right way to finish it." -All I See Is Shadows "The idea for this track came from a conversation I had with some friends about the movie Highlander, and its star, actor Christopher Lambert. Someone just commented that his acting is so bad because he's nearly blind, that all he sees is shadows. I don't know if it's true but I thought it would make a great title for a song. So I took the line and wrote a very simple, sad lovesong around it. It's quite personal as well. I recorded a vocal version with myself singing on it, and tried to figure out who could do it properly. For one reason or another I happened to bump into Nick Triani, an Engishman living in Helsinki. He's done some singing, but he's more known (in Finland anyways) as a record producer, mostly garage rock, and more guitar oriented things. The end result of his performance was simply magical. Personally I think this is the best piece of music I've ever done." -Four Seasons, Four Loves "I had done this instrumental track very late at night, while watching the Winter Olympics on TV. The following day my friend Jerry came by and he really liked what I'd done. Also, he wanted to show me some website where he had seen a record of mine for sale which he had never heard of. It turned out that some recordshop had messed up their catalogue and under my name they had a 12" called "Four Seasons, Four Loves". I thought it was great title and decided to make a track out of it, since in a way the track was already being promoted. So I wrote a few lyrics and we recorded the track the same day. Later I did some post production and gave the track a solid structure. It also started my latest obsession, making housetracks that are under 120 bpm." -Strangefaith "The title of the track is a mix of the Mode's Strangelove, and Order's True Faith, two of my favourite songs. The track started as a guitar riff, cos for some reason I had this idea that when I play keyboards I start repeating myself too much. So I bought a guitar to give me a fresh aproach to writing stuff. I made three distinctly different versions of this, but as always, the first one was the best one." -Latin Taiga "This is the oldest track on the album. It was recorded around February 1998 and it was the height of my Ibadan records boom. So me and my good friend Tuomas Salmela (20:20 vision, Guidance...) decided to do something in that style. We were really happy with the result but for some reason the track remained unreleased until now. This version also features a fake ending, inspired by The Smiths' "That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore"." -Miniaturized "After finishing my previous album I felt I needed to do something more dancefloor oriented stuff, and came up with a new pseudo Hösh, and the EP "Sounds like Trouble". The EP featured a track called Miniatures which this track is based on. At the time I was obsessed with FM synthesized bell sounds, and hadn't heard a track for a while that made a good use of them." "This version is a more housey interpretation of the original, and the production is quite next level compared to that." -Blue & White "After the success of Sunglasses At Night that I did with my Montreal based friend Tiga, I decided it could be interesting to have him as a vocalist on the album. I wrote him an instrumental and sent him an MP3 to work on. He thought it would be a cool idea to capture a moment of ice hockey history on the song and wrote what basically is a tribute to Team Finland who were defeated by the Canadians in the Olympic hockey tournament." - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - JORI HULKKONEN: HELSINKI MIX SESSIONS CD & Ltd Ed Unmixed DLP, Turbo recordings 2000 1.

Let Me Luv U 1/: If Only 3.19 "the opening track is truly an inspired piece of music. this downtempo track is based on an idea i got a couple of years ago while riding back home with my bicycle after a night at a bar in what was then my hometown, Oulu. the lyrics -which is me talking in my native finnish -tell us about my bicycle, and what it could tell us about its past if it only could sing. the track features a guitar solo from sgt niemelä, one of my superiors from my army days." 2/: Interstate Of Love 5.36 "this collaboration between me and my best friend tuomas salmela (20:20 vision, moodmusic...) is an 80's flavoured pack filled with retro sounds combined with the dynamic clubby sound of the late 90's. deep and emotional, but yet very simple, this track became such a favourite for me that eventhough i wasn't planning on putting any collaborations on the album, the temptation was too great. with a little postproduction and edits it was given a new lease of life instead of being buried in the depths of that infamous DAT graveyard." 3/: The Moment 7.37 "this track features a vocal contribution from chris udoh of the wamdue kids fame. the spoken-word afrofunk with chris' deep voice combined with my text, strings, guitars and one funky bassline add up to be one of the definite highpoints of the album for me." 4/: FlashBoy 6.29 "combining elements from disco, dub and house this tracks is definetily something for the dancefloor." "funky beats and a breakdown to die for with it's almost slapstickin overdriven space-echo noize, this is the one to go when that peakhour needs something with a difference." 5/: Confusion 6.33 "here we have something reflecting my interest for the off-floor side of things. jazzy rhodes action with drums on a live-tip will get this cool and lounge friendly track some serious latenight attention..." 6/: Whispers 4.26 "a tribute to the future sound of the 80's, but with that personal touch. warm analogue sounds with oldskool drumMACHINE beats take you back to the days when every day was lived under the fear of WW III, and the whispers from the distant new millenium promised a better tomorrow." 7/: Versus 7.10 "mixing up elements from electro and twostep, this dark and raw journey tries to deal with contrasts, the warm pads vs the distorted leads. It's Sapphire vs Steel." 8/: Wanna Do U 6.15 "take nu skool chi-town rhythms vs old skool detroit strings, throw in a soulful vocal with a slight vocoder treatment and lush production, and you'll get the flagship of the album. deep and meaningful music, was the idea..." 9/: Back When We Was Attached 8.44 "based on the 12" Detach Yoself, out spring 99, this track is basically a reworking on some of the ideas used on that ep. latin percussions, dubby chords and dreamy pads." 10/: Contaminated 6.57 "the last track that was finished for the album features its second vocal contribution, this time from an englishman, paul oxley. paul is a veteran in music business; his band "paul oxley's unit" was one of the most popular bands in finland in the early eighties, combining the ealry electronic sounds with more traditional rock sounds. " "paul's voice was what i had in mind when writing the song, trying to combine the new skool of off-beats and eighies new wave art movements. " 11/: Let Me Luv U 7.54 "this track has been around since 1997, released first under the jii hoo pseudonym. getting praised worldwide by such DJs as dr bob jones, francois kevorkian and anthony nicholson, and being voted as one the best 12" in 97/98 in numerous dancemusic magazines, this willie hutch sampling soulful deephouse gem is finally available on an album." - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - JORI HULKKONEN: THE SPIRITS INSIDE ME CD, F communications (France) 1998 1.

I feel there's a certain kinship between this album, and my latest album, Different, mainly on the approach on writing electronic, listening oriented, original music." "On the "spirits..." the approach was more album oriented, some of the songs were made for the album, although still most of the songs were just tracks that had piled up in the last couple of years, and didn't fit on the 12" releases or albums under diferent pseudonyms during this time. The first half of the album is very moody, electronic stuff with a lot of old school detroit aesthetics. The only thing the album suffers from are the two "classic house" tracks, "Red Tape District,and "7 nites, 7 dayz", which are fine on their own but within this context they sound slightly out of place." "My favourite track on the album, "The Street Near Your Place", was inspired by a performance I witnessed at the Sonar festival in Barcelona in the summer of 1997; Carl Craig and his Innerzone Orchestra played there an awesome gig, featuring a remake of his classic track "At Les". When I came back home to Finland from Barcelona I made this track in a couple of hours, still complitely mesmerized by this concert." - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - BOBBY FORESTER: LOVE YOU FOREVER CD, PLUMPHOUSE / LOOP RECORDS (Sweden) 1998 1.

Around the end of 1995, after we had decided to stop wasting time and money on LUMI records, I was looking for a label interested in releasing my material. F communications was one of the only labels around interested in albums and artist developement, two crucial requirements I had in mind." "After sending the label the first demo, a cassette tape that had 3 minute long clips of maybe 15 different tracks, they contacted me if had more such material. I sent them additional 15 clips, and from those 30 songs we chose the tracklisting of what became my first album on F comm, Selkäsaari Tracks." "Technically the album's backbone were two drummachines, Roland R8mkII and TR-707, which were used not only for drumsounds, but also for sequencing and trigging a lot of stuff, such as the CS-15, SH-101and DX-100.
