We're proud to present the next episode of Intelligent Music Podcast with excellent deep and atmospheric drum & bass mix from talented finnish producer and DJ Ilkka Kurkela https://a.k.a. Mineral.
He is inspired by drum & bass sound since the mid of 90's and has released the tracks on well-known labels as Med School Music, Lightless Recordings, In Da Jungle, LAOS Recordings, Trust In Music, Mastik Netlabel and others. Ilkka also actively collaborates with other Finnish musicians: Resound, Fanu and Esc.
We found out about him 8 years ago, with the competition by the Knowledge Magazine, when his remixes of the tracks by Seba and Blu Mar Ten sounded among hundreds of other works. Our joy from finding such a nugget was soon reinforced by his other tracks, which are always melodic and musical, but the same time have a completely dance floor tinge.
In January 2020 on our Soundcloud feed drops his new outstanding promo mix and since that time we have an idea to book this musician for record one of the episodes of Intelligent Music Podcast. And now here it is!
