THE HISTORY OF FINNISH RΔVE CULTURE


The History of Finnish Rave Culture Part 4 (Scroll to the bottom of the post for parts 1,2 & 3)

Basso Media is releasing an inspiring 5-part documentary about Finnish Rave Culture. Being a relatively young appreciator of electronic music it's inspiring to see footage and hear stories of legendary places and events all the way from late 1980s.

Inspired by this went through my own archives and found some epic photos taken at Misf*ts Rave at Suvilahti in Summer 2009.

I decided to feature this event not only because it was probably the first time I stayed up until 7am, but also because Redrum was the first proper electronic music club I went to when I was younger - and back then Misf*ts at Redrum on Thursdays was the place to go. 

Co-owner and Resident DJ of Misf*ts Erkko Lehtinen was also the head editor of the Finnish Rave Culture documentary. You can check out parts 1-3 at Basso.fi: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3. The final part of the documentary premieres Sat. 3.12.2011 noon or l8r at Basso.fi.

// And for all the international readers: the documentary series is completely in Finnish and with no subtitles. However it's still worth watching for anyone interested in the past and present of Finnish nightlife.
