we won the teosto palkinto / teosto prize!

I have been producing weird beats for the underground experimental rap star (and my dear friend!) Draama-Helmi since Helmi’s first record in 2015 and I’m incredible happy to announce that we won the prestige Teosto Prize this year!

The prize was for the the last Draama-Helmi album “Draama-Helmi kuistilla“. I made the beat for “Ennustus” track, you can hear the whole album from the embedded player! The production team for the record was: Helmi herself, Miikka Sipilä, Tuomas Närvä (tumoas), Jonna Karanka (Kuupuu), Toni Korpi (Kanttoripoika), Heikki Kivelä (Hex Viihde) and me (as Forces)!

The two other Teosto prize winners are Mikko Sarvanne Garden’s “Heräämisen valkea myrsky” album and Sanna Ahvenjärvi’s & Tapio Lappalainen’s compotisition “Water”. Both super cool as well!

Here’s the Helsingin Sanomat news article about Helmi’s work:
