Logikast 001 – Taneli
We created the Logikast series to give our followers a deeper and more dynamic understanding as to where the future of electronic music is headed. Through this mix-based series, we will explore a wide range of styles, genres, and sounds that we believe are pushing the future of electronic music. We hope that this series broadens your spectrum of music, as we continue to evolve along with it.
The first artist in our Logikast series is UK based Garage producer, Taneli. The young producer first started making music two and a half years ago after stumbling across a version Ableton on the internet. Taneli first began experimenting with French-house and Drum & Bass sounds, building a strong foundation for his productions. Upon turning 18, Taneli’s tastes began to steer more towards the deep, underground side of House and Bass music. After a near religious experience at a Jackmaster show in Liverpool, He began his full immersion into the sound & culture of bass music. Inspired by the rising trends in Techno, Garage, House and Bass, his productions began to take shape.
The release of Taneli’s first EP Positivity saw great success on the internet, prompting a seriousness to his productions. A few months after his positivity release, Taneli unleashed his hit single, You’re The One. The song features a distinct garage sound, highlighted by its sultry synth stabs and smooth R&B style vocals. The song has taken off recently receiving numerous plays on the BBC’s prestigious Radio-1.
We recently caught up with Taneli to do a quickfire Q&A. He was also kind enough to provide us with our very first exclusive Logikast Mix.
