Artist name: Tuomas Lähteenoja
Alias: Tempo Giusto
Tempo Giusto is a Finnish producer-DJ residing in London, UK. He started his career in early 2007, and is now considered one of the most prolific and promising producers in the world. His works have been released and featured on several compilations on many top labels such as Black Hole, Anjunabeats, Spinnin', Ultra, In Trance We Trust and Premier to name a few. He also runs his own label with two imprints Echelon and Echelon White.
Tempo Giusto's trademark sound is progressive trance with a strong club emphasis - it combines catchy and original melodic themes with a powerful bass drive, embellished with industrial-like techy twists and rhytmical nuances which give his compositions their characteristic style. Although a versatile producer with a softer side as well, Tempo Giusto is best known for his dark and hypnotic big room bangers. He had been a keen listener of electronic music for years, but it was the later clubbing experience in Ibiza in 2006 that eventually crystallized his vision of how he wanted his music to sound like - it had to be mesmerizing, dazzlingly interesting, and it had to be full of energy and drive. Since then, Tempo Giusto has been determined in making it big and by 2010 has had some 70 releases out on several labels. Some of his most played works include the debut single "Agent Orange", "Tick Tock" and "The Name Game" both released on Black Hole Recordings, "Blow", and "Metropolitan", all supported by the industry's top DJs such as Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Markus Schulz, Paul van Dyk and the like. "Metropolitan" was also featured on Ferry Corsten's recent compilation "Once In A Blue Moon". Having remixed for artists such as Mike Koglin, POS, Talla 2xlc, Mark Sherry, and Phynn, Tempo Giusto is also a wanted remixer who always finds creative ways to deliver other's work.
During the last year, Tempo Giusto has been concentrating on finalizing his debut album "Premiering In Theaters", planned for release in September 2010. "Premiering In Theaters" consists of 14 carefully selected works composed with fierce musical passion and meticulous craftmanship during the last 2 years. Having received his audio engineering and recording arts diploma in mid-2010, Tempo Giusto now delivers the audience his signature sound in its purest and most enriched form so far, combining his thematic and melodic dynamism with a wildly powerful drive, yet preserving the minute musical delicacies and nuances of composition. The emphasis is on club sound but there are also softer pearls as well that give the album more depth, such as the vocal single "Alive". The album will be available as a continuous DJ mix by Tempo Giusto, and as separate tracks for club play.
To make things even more interesting, the album is followed by a remix compilation in which the original works are presented by a cavalcade of fine producers who are all known of their unique sound and expression, including Mike Koglin, Mark Sherry, DJ Eco, Kenneth Thomas, Dave Schiemann, Evol Waves, and many others. Together with the remixes, "Premiering in Theaters" will be one of the most outstanding and thought-provoking releases in the electronic music scene this year. The first single, "Stockticker", is the only track in the album with a guest producer - Ima'gin. It is aimed for single release in June 2010.
