Midnite City Soul Affair
Since 1993 Jori has released numerous 12"s and albums on various labels like Lumi, Hybrid, Trainspotter's Nightmare, ACV, Plumphouse and F-Communications. In 1996 was released his critically acclaimed debut album "Selkäsaari Tracks" (F communications) which is an original blend of Detroit soundscapes and Chicago influenced jacking beats. Since that everything started to happen big time. Jori started doing live acts and DJ gigs all over Europe; firstly as a part of F communications tours which covered some of Europes most famous clubs such as The Rex (France), The End (UK), Cream (UK), E-Werk (Germany), Kadoc (Portugal), and Paradiso (The Netherlands) to name but a few, and after that as an artist on his own merits. Also, Jori has seen the best that Europe has to offer club and festival wise: Roskilde, Sonar, Transmusicales, Montreaux Jazz festival, 10 days Of Techno, Respect at Le Queen, Moog, Florida 135, Vertigo, KU, Who's Who Land, Chemistry - not forgetting clubs and festivals in his native Finland and Sweden.
Jori has also kept himself busy on the production front. After an album for the Swedish Plumphouse-label (Bobby Forester "Love You Forever, 1997), and an album for Trainspotter's Nighmare (Finland: 0 points, 1997) Jori released probably his biggest record so far: Jii Hoo "Let Me Luv U" on F-Communications - a record played and praised by DJs and musiclovers worldwide. In 1998 Jori re-invented his sound once again on his "The Spirits Inside Me" album (F communications), a record that permanently established Jori as a household name in the scene
