Fueled by his own contemporary brand of dance music without genre barriers, Jyri Hintikka aka MK8, has been making his way in the Nordic electronic music scene. With frequent performances, both in festivals and hallmark clubs, he has become a force to be reckoned with.
Even at a young age it was clear that he had a passion for dance music. Through his closest friends, he quickly became embedded in the world of DJing. Having used the earlier years of his career in perfecting his sound and skill set as well as organizing underground raves, the budding talent was primed for something great.
Over the last years he has performed in massive electronic music festivals (Weekend Festival, Electric Festival) as well as the most intimate of nightclubs. He has amassed support from industry heavyweights such as Sander Van Doorn, Cosmic Gate, Umek, Enrico Sangiuliano and Ramon Tapia with multiple Beatport top 100 charted releases.
On the present day, as the mastermind behind Insomnia, his personal club imprint, MK8 showcases the most intriguing domestic and international acts. For years, he has been a central figure in bringing like-minded people together, united in love for electronic music.
With a packed schedule, both for new releases as well for high-profile performances, 2020 is looking to be a very promising year for this flourishing artist.
