KEIJO - more than that - (first edition)

YGR 33
CD-R (6€)

Keijo Virtanen is from the Jyväskylä area in Finland, which in some circles is said to be the center of the universe. I’ve allways commented to this with something like, ”yeah, right” before but after hearing this album I’m starting to think that there might be something to such a statement after all.Mats Gustafsson, Broken Face 18 (about another records on Lal Lal Lal)

I am beginning to think that Keijo can do no wrong. Everything I hear that he has recorded has moved me. There are few artists that can pull this off, especially in such a profound way. His music is therpeutic and will sooth your aching bones after a long day. Keijo seems like a person who is in a constant state of dreaming. While a lot of electronic-based music feels soulless and hollow, Keijo's will always bee filled with warmth
