Renaissance Man

Renaissance Man

It is a strange land in the far north of Europe, usually renowned for its uncouth inhabitants’ penchant for daredevil sports, power tools and music that sounds like it has been made with the aforementioned. Yes, Renaissance Man may hail from Finland, but beyond an iron constitution that allows these artists to keep on playing and playing, the similarity ends there. The two halves of Renaissance Man met whilst working in an architecture office in Helsinki. They saw in each other prime examples of an end-of-naughties cultural multitasking airmile-guzzling kind of lifestyle that prompted them to join forces under one name and build the kind of house they really wanted.

From 2008 onwards, their monthly club night NOW! had already treated Helsinki to the sounds of their musical contemporaries. In late 2008, the pair decided to change the dynamic and unleash their own creations on an unsuspecting world, trawling the aural universe in search of sonic nuggets to pepper over their tracks. Their Debut 'Spraycan' was released on Switch’s Dubsided in early 2009, followed by 'Rhythm' on the Kitsuné Maison 7 compilation. A subsequent EP on Parisian label Sound Pellegrino launched title track 'What Is Guru' as one of the year’s underground hits, making Renaissance Man highly sought-after remixers for the likes of Brodinski, Crystal Fighters, Health, Le Corps Mince de Françoise… Original tracks and remixes have seen support from fellow DJ’s including Diplo, Annie Mac, Claude Von Stroke, Tiga & Jesse Rose…

Taking their inspiration from 3000 years of art and science, Renaissance Man prove that you can think out of the box, but that it’s even better to think outside the walls. Or make that borders.
