Lightless presents: SDS – “Hallucinations” EP


Hallucinations EP by SDS is out now

I’m proud to present the music of SDS on Lightless. To me it’s fresh, because doing breaks in D&B is a bit of a lost art these days, and that’s what I set out to push with Lightless initially.
In SDS tunes, I can hear a bit of Danny Breaks, Paradox, Seba, Teebee, and a bit of Fanu, too.
Dark, dystopian, far out, far away. Drums are the backbone. SDS takes me back, but I can see and hear his eyes are on the future. We will be hearing more of this guy.

BUY THE EP AT Bandcamp / Digital Tunes / BeatportBoomkat / Juno Download / iTunes / Google Play and all major digital stores.

Year 2016 – introspection


Polar” came out a year ago. Time goes by pretty fast, doesn’t it? The year is slowly but surely coming to a close so I thought I’d write a few introspective words about how 2016 was.
This year has been slow in terms of releases; there’s only been two EPs under my real name, Janne Hatula, on Lightless. There’ll be an EP by an artist called SDS on Lightless dropping on Nov 25.

Breaks & Beats Bear tote bags available


The bear we know from “Breaks & Beats” podcast series does not make many public appearances. Some say they’ve caught a glimpse of him jamming to some good beats somewhere in the depths of Finnish forests during outdoor festivals every now and then. Some say he’s a myth altogether. Honestly, we don’t see him often, and even that is just for a quick photo session for podcasts. And he always asks for a ton of beer and coffee. And good beats. That diva…

One day he got in touch and he insisted we make a tote bag of him, adding that should we fail to do that, he wouldn’t let us use his handsome pictures as podcast art. So we did as he asked.
You can order it via Bandcamp.

This is a limited run of 50 Continue reading Breaks & Beats Bear tote bags available

Loop 2016 – thoughts

Processed with VSCO with t1 preset

It was a great weekend in Berlin – one of the best weekends all year, and it’s hard to put into words how great the inspirational vibe we all got to experience and share during those three days at Funkhaus was. We all met numerous likeminded people from all over the world, all of whom were here for the same reason: making music. Big thanks for that goes out to Ableton.
Some of the highlights and points I’ll be taking home: Continue reading Loop 2016 – thoughts
