Mikko Joensuu comes from Finland, but while listening to his latest single ‘House Of Fire‘, one could be easily convinced that he is from some distant and mysterious galaxy: that’s just how cosmic, ethereal, otherworldly his music is. ‘House Of Fire‘ is epic and groundbreaking not only because of its duration – the track is good 15 minutes long! – but also because of the vast, limitless soundscape that it gradually creates, step by step, minute by minute. This soundscape is neither decidedly dark nor light; its mood is transcendent and glimmery. Mikko skilfully combines elegant neoclassic and ambient sound with modern shimmering synth and electronica. The result sounds simultaneously like music from the past and music from the future. Check it out for yourself below!
You can catch Mikko in Berlin on April 12 at the Ja Ja Ja event @ FluxBau!
