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.
Lightless = 10 years. Time flies by pretty quick.
I started the label in September 2006 due to the then great indie / bass music distributor ST Holdings constantly suggesting that to me, promising to pay for all expenses, saying they have faith in my sound. They said it doesn’t make sense shopping my music around, and that I should consolidate. And so I did.
Big thanks to Chris and Andrew Parkinson, wherever you are. Those guys did me a massive favor, and I’m proud of every moment.
I’ll raise a toast to 10 more years to come
Huge thanks to everybody that’s been supporting – wouldn’t be possible without you.
New release out in November.
If you don’t know, check Lightless on Bandcamp (can be found in all stores).
Classic Lightless logo t-shirts back in stock to celebrate 10 years of Lightless.
15 EUR a pop.
It’s t-shirt weather sooner or later, so you know it makes sense. You don’t want people to think you’re a homeless person / D&B producer in your worn-out ragged old shirt, do you.
Comes with a high-quality Lightless sticker (as seen in the pic) – the material is closer to plastic than paper and won’t rip off leaving your surface or papery and gluey. I’ll probably write some lame message on the flipside.
Handmade screen printed.
100% cotton heavyweight Gildan Ultra shirt.
“Polku“, a 4-track digital EP is out now on Lightless Recordings.
There’s no story behind it – other than a man coping with dark winter days, longing for a way out (“Polku” is Finnish – “a path”).
90–130 BPM beats – a mixture of downbeat, hip hop, footwork, and related styles.
I’m releasing all slower-tempo electronic productions that isn’t D&B as Janne Hatula (my real name) from now on. We’re talking about in bass music: there will be D&B as Fanu, too, as before, and there will be other styles and tempos, too, as this release shows you.
PS!: Throughout the history of Lightless shirts going out to all over the world, very, very few have been lost (probably around five–six in total). I cannot be held liable if the parcel is lost by mail (which has only happened a few times, and it’s only ever happened with some shirts sent to Russia so far).
