Finnish House Producer Per2 Debuts on Youth Control with Infectious ‘Cloud’ EP

Set to turn heads and get dance floors vibing, Finnish producer Per2 arrives with his hotly anticipated debut on the taste-making Youth Control label. The artist formerly known as Perttu cooks up a fresh mix of garage swing, catchy melodies and hypnotic drums across all tracks on his exquisite Cloud EP. The EP arrives on April 28th and can be streamed / downloaded here: SPOTIFY / APPLE / SOUNDCLOUD / BEATPORT.

In an eclectic and accomplished career, the previous incarnation of Per2 has done it all from working with Butter TM and Bonnie Strange, to remixing the likes of Billie Eilish, signing to Universal and BMG, and playing festivals around the world. A drummer since the age of six, touring internationally in several bands, to being part of the techno and art collective ParkerStrange, Per2 has lived and breathed all musical styles. These days he makes electronic music with a big heart and fuses disco, house, funk and electronica into his own signature forms. The inspiration for this new EP came during a heartbroken and sober summer which inspired him to explore making music on the piano in his Helsinki studio, not far from his birth place on the small island of Suomenlinna.

Boutique Finnish label, publisher and party brand Youth Control has always discovered homegrown talent and successfully brought them to the wider world, gaining support from big name DJs such as Armand Van Helden, Steve Aoki and Todd Edwards, as well as high profile radio plays on the likes of BBC Radio 1. After a brief hiatus, the label began another epic journey to uncover the best hidden gems in the local electronic music scene. The result is a release schedule full of new, exciting and talented producers and DJs, such as Per2,all set to explode onto the global stage. The new artists join a label roster  that is home to the likes of label founders TJH87 as well as renowned artists such as Rony Rex, Roisto, Disco Despair and Terminé.
The superb opener of this EP is ‘Cloud’, a lush and uplifting mix of shimmery, summery chords and indie beats. The precision drums power along a delightfully airy groove as the tenor piano notes ring out with real emotion. The excellent ‘Forest’ has a steamy and tropical feel as the bright synths soar to the heavens and more brilliant live drums drive the groove home. It’s an energetic but heartfelt cut perfect for open air dancing on warm summer evenings. Last of all is ‘Solar’ with melancholic piano chords at the centre. They hint at romantic loss but the rousing synths around it lift the spirits as elegant drums carry you away to a better place. Per2 has served up a standout debut for Youth Control here and marks another on-point signing for the quality label.
