For Rad Summer’s ninth release, the young imprint reached across the Atlantic to Finnish producer Somepoe for a 5 track banger. Beginning with the trill inspired “Seven Dayz” and ending with the sentimental “Oulu Theme”, Somepoe aka Topi Paananen brings a unique sense of style to his production by combining familiar samples with snapping drums and melodic synths. Unlike much of the aggressive dance music being released currently, “Seven Dayz” gives each track a chance to develop a captivating groove. Sompoe has crafted an EP that is equally worth hearing in a club or through headphones.
Somepoe has been active for sometime now in Finland’s bass music scene. Running the popular club night and radio show Fire In The City has provided the young producer/DJ with the perfect platform to present his unique ear for interesting samples, trap drums, and bass. Topi can often be found rocking crowds with some of the world’s finest dance musicians including Lil Silva, Mensah, L-Wiz, Tes La Rok, Desto, Dj Madd, Bert On Beats, Lady Chann, RSD, and Onra. Recently his track “Kicks and Snares” was featured on Luvstep 3 from Flufftronix, Dirty South Joe, and Cool Records.Released March 26, 2012
