Taking his name from the Finnish word for ‘villain,’ Roisto is a maestro from the deep, dark forests of northernmost Finland. In his small studio, adorned with old analog synths, tape machines, and 12″ disco records, Roisto crafts his signature brand of disco. His debut EP, ‘Apart In Love,’ showcased three original disco tracks, featuring catchy sampled vocals, slick guitars, and super funky bass-lines. Released by Finnish indie label Youth Control, the EP garnered widespread attention, with The Wired, DJ Mag, Thump, and others featuring it.
‘Apart In Love’ received support from renowned DJs, including Armand Van Helden, The Magician, Utah Saints, and more. Roisto’s remix work for artists like Bob Sinclair, The Magician, and Lotus, along with labels such as Kitsuné and Spinnin’, solidified his status as a sought-after ‘Disco Wizard.’ His music, described as neodisco in a class of its own, garnered praise from MySpace, The Wired, Earmilk, and Magnetic Magazine.
As the Finnish winter approaches, Roisto, the eccentric ‘Disco Wizard,’ keeps his analog synths warm, working on new material set to elevate the bar for millennium-era disco music in early 2017. Brace yourselves for the musical magic of Roisto – a producer whose work steals your undivided attention and adds a touch of villainous charm to the disco scene.
