We, two lovers of the arts, science, sports, languages, funk and techno, are RENAISSANCE MAN - a platform for contemporary dance music.
This is our story so far...
We first met through working in the same architecture office in Helsinki. The office was commissioned to design a club, the number one underground venue in Helsinki, where we, as a type of compensation, started our own monthly night ..NOW!... After a year the sound of the night boiled down to a playful and modern sound of house and we started bringing over several international acts we found relevant. Although the night was far from a financial success, inspired by it, we started producing our own music together.
RENAISSANCE MAN was born in the summer of 2008 after we name ourselves self-ironically referring to the culture of multidisciplinary creatives inhabiting our social circle. We got a great kick start when Dave 'Switch' Taylor signed our very first track Spraycan on his label Dubsided. After a long wait the Spraycan EP came out and several others on made2play by our friend Jesse Rose. Soon after we signed our track Rythym on the Kitsune Maison 7 compilation and released a second EP on the ambitious Parisian Sound Pellegrino label. Its title track What Is Guru became somewhat of an underground hit. Meanwhile remix requests started to drop and we got rather busy with them. We have remixed, amongst others, Brodinski & Noob on Turbo, Crystal Fighters, Delphic, Health and Le Corpse Mince De Francoise.
Things are looking bright. We relocated to Berlin and toured around Europe intensively; shows have also been booked in Australia, New Zealand and China and our tracks and remixes are now played by everybody from Jesse Rose to Tiga to Tomboy to likes of radio giants as Pete Tong and Annie Mac. A while ago we released our first album The Renaissance Man Project on Turbo. So no time for rest as our house has an open plan!
