I featured the Finnish 16-year-old, Lenno, a few times here on GDD™, but I wanted to provide you with a deeper look into this teenage professional electronic music producer/DJ who is on his way to a successful & influential career. Also, just in time for New Year’s Eve, he threw together an excellent party mix which will leave you more than ready to partake in the annual festivities or help keep the energy up at your afterparty.
Please read on after the jump to see our conversation about how he started, his philosophy behind making music, his top 5 tracks of the year, what’s next for his career, the full tracklist of his NYE mix, and more!
Last month, I did an introductory post on Lenno and he recently put his fine disco touch on The Wombats’ “1996.” With quality releases this year, 2012 looks like it will be very promising for Lenno and I’m excited to watch him make his mark on the scene. In addition to this remix, I’ve included an excellent mix of his as a bonus to let you get to know him a little better. Enjoy.
Here we are with Viceroy AKA Austen Afridi AKA sun-kissed magician and panty soaker extraordinaire. He took some time to sit down with us and discuss the creative process behind “Viceroy” and give away his smashing new EP “Sunburn” for free. Needless to say, it’s incredible, sure to teleport you to your own island paradise. Drink it in, and clean out those ears, because we’re about to fill you up!
