Salos & Jicera

Tell me about where you grew up?

Jicera: “I was born in Helsinki and I’ve been stuck here ever since.”

Salos: “I was born in Kuopio which locates in about middle of Finland. I’ve been living in Helsinki since I was eight years old.”

When did you get interested in music?

Salos: “Probably in upper comprehensive school. First I listened every kind of genre, as I still do, but it was about that time when electronic music came special for me.

Jicera: “I didn’t really care about any music until the mid 90’s, that’s about it when my awakening started. Can’t really remember any specific event or time.”

When did you start DJing/producing – and what or who were your early passions and influences?

Jicera: “About 15 years ago me and two of my friends decided to buy a low level music producing software and we fooled around with it for a while, my friends quit after one week. I didn’t.”

Salos: “My first time as a DJ was in a house party. It was the summer vacation between upper comprehensive and beginning of high school. I got some plastic-feeling controller linked to a computer but at the time I didn’t knew there was anything better, cause’ it felt so new and cool to play to that huge crowd. I mean 20 people.”

What do you personally consider to be the incisive moments in your artistic career?

Salos, Jicera: “Well this duo came alive just a year ago so hopefully we haven’t seen everything yet, but so far things worth mentioning are signing several releases at Club86Recordings and couple of small time gigs”

Tell me something about your upcoming productions?

Salos, Jicera: “Our next production follows the steps of our latest single Solace. We don’t want to reveal too much yet but let’s say it’s the first track with vocals we’ve been working on.”

What you think is the best dance music track ever made?

Salos: “Oh, I was waiting for this one. Still don’t know the answer. Well, let’s say ATB – 9pm (Till I Come)”

Jicera: “It´s almost impossible question to give a simple answer to but I will say one of my old time favorites: O.T. Quartet – Hold That Sucker Down (Builds Like A Skyscraper)”
