Whichever musical path you’re on, chances are you might meet Finland’s iconoclastic Jimi Tenor, in the kind of resplendent gown that Joseph would be jealous of. Originally inspired by industrial electronics and techno in the 90s – when he and his band The Shamans fashioned homemade instruments out of recyclable materials – he’s since taken his cult following on the scenic route. From jazz-tinged afro-beat with his groups Kabukabu or teaming up with Tony Allen, to psyched-out soul with Nicole Willis, to eastern bansuri Zen and sub-sonic dub with Academy alum Desto, Jimi has walked his own path, at once mindful and considerate to new and young collaborators, yet with a bittersweet tone all of his own. Here he is joined Finnish hell-raisers and Academy grads Jesse, who have been working with Jimi Tenor since 2012′s Karaoke King, fusing their unique blend of synthesized world disco. Capable of Harley Davidson levels of analogue noise, Jesse’s world of 80s workout videos, sleeveless denim jackets and ZX graphics collides spectacularly with Jimi’s own DIY mentality in a way that will likely prove too much for our familiar reality.
A new marvelous seven inch release coming up as soon as we get the records from the pressing plant! Including two great versions of our track Terminator that was previously heard on our III album! Now you get a super slow & funky afro groove of Randy Barracuda’s very own and Stiletti-Ana’s Video Dub version with an insane amount of dubbing.
The 7″ is a very limited release of 200 copies, so be quick and order your copy from here: http://harmoenia.fi/shop/jesse-jimi-tenor-randy-barracuda-remix/

After hearing the wonderful 90′s Detroit influenced huge techno original of Skatebård’s own, we did a nice head knocking and super groovy remix. We recorded it live at our Haista Studio straight to a two track reel to reel machine with flangered live drum solo on top of everything! The original was released with JESSE, Telephones and Chmmr’s Borgerlig Konfirmasjon remixes on UNTZ UNTZ records and you can feel them here:
