Pow! Sorry for the lack of updates. I moved to Montréal a month ago and I don’t have Interweb connection at home yet, so I haven’t really had the chance to write anything. Anyhow, Montréal is proving out to be a nice city. Pictures and more info some other day.
In the meantime, why don’t you listen to some of my Månsteri Mixtapes. They are now available for download over at the revamped music section http://originalhamsters.com/music/. If you are a promoter in Montréal and like my style, don’t be afraid to email me at matti (at) originalhamsters.com. I’m getting serious withdrawal symptoms from not having turntables around.

The first Månsteri radio show was on air on last Saturday. I had some special guests. Prozack Turner, Mark Stretch and DJ Flip from Foreign Legion visited the studio and they were also kind enough to do a freestyle session.
Download the first show here: http://www.sendspace.com/file/bf91il
Here’s only the freestyle part (Prozack Turner & Mark Stretch) + freestyle scratch session from DJ Flip: http://originalhamsters.com/music/fl_freestyle_monsteri.mp3

I’m leaving Rovaniemi for the summer and I have to leave my turntables here so I wanted to do a little mixtape with some funky and sweaty tunes that would get me on that summer vibe.
Unfortunately, I kind of messed this up, as usual. I don’t have a proper sound card for my iBook and I had to use an iMic I borrowed, so there’s some really horrible sounding noise in some parts of the recording. Latency issues or something. On top of that, the mixes are not that good. I don’t seem to be able to stay on beat anymore. Really annoying.
Anyway, download here. Beware of bad mixing and f*d up sound. There’s at least three times when the audio starts clipping. First time occurs around 7:30. Sorry about that.
- Wicked Lester – Honey (Dr. Rubberfunk Remix)
- Yam Who – Here We Go (Stray Remix)
- Zeb – Afro Disco
- Flamongo Sanomat – Dillinger
- Little Big Bee – Calypso Blues
- Sabo&Zeb feat. Nappy G – Beat Pharmacy Remix
- Zeb – Al Karina
- Beatfanatic – ?
- Minnie Ripperton – Loving You (K2 edit)
- Turelli – Mekano
To get the most out of this mixtape, listen to it close to someone important to you by a lake in the Finnish nightless night. I actually recorded this mixtape during the only time that the sun is below the horizon here in Rovaniemi. That’s around 1AM – 2 AM.

Here’s an old mixtape from 2003(?). Mainly hip-hop, some blends that turned out pretty nice and a little bit of amateurish beat juggling. The idea was to make like a guide book for all the wannabe-djs out there. You know, just to show how this mixing-business should be done. This is what turned out of it. Listen and download here.
I should make more mixes, but I’m just not happy if don’t come up with a really good idea like Jamaikasetti was. I don’t want to make any mediocre mixes. I promise that I’ll release a new mixtape in the summer and it’s going to be something fresh.
