Orion – Failure Educates

“Failure Educates” is a perfect, rolling tool – functional techno at its best. Tried and tested on the floor – it works brilliantly as a heavy loop tool but also as a slowly modulating groovy 7 minute track.

“Failure Educates” is the last of the three release combo, “Loiste” and “Timid” being the first two.

PARTAMATTI SHIRT


March 24th, 2019

Handmade Absence of Facts Shirt

We’ve been wondering if there could be a product that presents Absence of Facts label as brilliantly as our music does – something that would be handmade, local and just enough off the mainstream.

Matti, a good friend, radio host and, yes, male seamstress started his own clothing brand PartaMatti and it quickly became clear that we share a lot of same values. As we’ve worked together quite some hours (and years) in the past, it was about time to make good stuff happen again.

And the result is nothing short of brilliant. We designed a shirt which has the aesthetics of Absence of Facts and the quality of Matti’s clothing brand. The shirt is long enough, designed to feel good and to look different enough and the material quality is superb. Handmade, 100% Finnish product. And black. Of course it’s black.

‘Today’s guest is the Finnish dj, producer and labelowner Orion.

Juska Wendland aka Orion is based in Helsinki, owns an amazing label called Absence Of Facts, is besides Techno also a producer for Downtempo and Ambient and hosts his own radio show every Friday 7 – 10 PM on Ylex, the Finnish National Radio.

I came across his work months ago, when i discovered one of his collaborations with the swedish mastermind Cari Lekebusch.

Orion just told me that they had a really good studio session in February – four 134-136bpm tracks are coming out in the upcoming months. He really enjoys working with him in a studio he said – this was the third time and as they both know now how they are used to work the tracks, it’s easy to just fire up the machines and get going.

His label Absence of Facts is going strong – Orion said: “I believe small indie labels have a lot of potential in the future, especially outside of mainstream music. AOF has lots of new releases in the pipeline – and I see the project is more than just a record label. I can channel all sort of arts out with the releases – the cover art is a series of abandoned places I’ve visited around the world and the video clips are series of experiments with After Effects.”‘

Absence of Doors Closing. 🚪 New release “Orion – Failure Educates” is out now. Link in bio.

Absence of Awe! ◾ Out of this world production last night at K U U T I O. 😳 Nearly 1000 people going down in Finland with an event consisting of only local artists is a rare treat – and proves that providing a full scale audiovisual experience is sometimes more worthy than raising the event quality by bringing in artists from abroad. 💪 Local underground going strong in 2019! ❤️

“Minkälaista materiaalia, Matti?”Oon miettinyt, että olis kiva että olisi olemassa Absence of Facts -tuote, joka olisi kuin levy-yhtiö itse: käsin tehty, kotimainen, loppuun asti mietitty ja hitusen sivussa valtavirrasta.

Matti, mun hyvä ystävä, radiokollega ja DJ-inkarnaatio, jonka kanssa kerrytettiin kiertuekilsoja ja tuotiin asioita meidän pääkopasta ihmisten iloksi ja kauhuksi, meni ja jalosti itsestään miesompelijan – aliaksenaan PartaMatti. Aika nopeasti tajuttiin, että herran ompelijabrändissä ja Absence of Factsissa on aika tosi paljon samaa. Toinen tuntuu tosi pahalta korvissa, toinen taas hyvältä päällä. Oli pakko palata juurille ja tuoda eläväksi jotain meidän molempien pääkopasta.

Ja tulos on kuin huutoa parhaaseen kuunteluaikaan! Ompelimossa jalostettiin täydellinen paita, joka huokuu hyvää molemmista suunnista. Tää on estetiikaltaan pelkkää Absence of Factsia, riittävän pitkä, sopivan spessu (ei tosiaan mikään perus T-paita) ja materiaaliltaan sairaan laadukas. Käsin tehty ja 100% kotimainen. Ja musta. Tietysti.

Jokainen paita valmistetaan yksitellen ja PartaMatin omin käsin. Ei oo mitään varastoa tai mitään alihankintaa. Mee ja kurkkaa lisää: https://www.partamatti.com/product/10/absence-of-fashion

We’ve been wondering if there could be a product that presents Absence of Facts label as brilliantly as our music does – something that would be handmade, local and just enough off the mainstream.

Matti, a good friend, radio host and, yes, male seamstress started his own clothing brand PartaMatti and it quickly became clear that we share a lot of same values. As we’ve worked together quite some hours (and years) in the past, it was about time to make good stuff happen again.

And the result is nothing short of brilliant. We designed a shirt which has the aesthetics of Absence of Facts and the quality of Matti’s clothing brand. The shirt is long enough, designed to feel good and to look different enough and the material quality is superb. Hand made, 100% Finnish product. And black. Of course it’s black.
