“Exploding Heart”, New EP from Mr. Fastfinger

NEW MUSIC OUT! Digital release. listen at Spotify, should be found on iTunes and all services as well… This release is for the anniversary of the ten year old debut album. Celebrate with me! The power solo anthem: Exploding Heart started when i hear orchestral stems of the tune Big Trummors. The core of the tune is in the rhythm and harmony of B. Trummors but it’s complitely different. Rescue You is based on a tune that was supposed to be on Exploding Guitar album. After a ten year break from the tune i renew it’s harmony, wrote new melodies, recorded guitars and synths. Really cool timecapsule track! Crying in the Cave was mastered along the Exploding Guitar album, but I knew that the album was too long already and left it out. Here’s finally this fantasy tune out offically!

Mika Tyyskä – Guitars and just about everything
Sampo Tiittanen – Double upright bass on track 1.
Thomas Törnroos Drums on tracks 1. and 2.
Lasse Rantanen – Bass on tracks 2. and 3.

Produced by Mika Tyyskä.
Mastered by Henkka Niemistö / Chartmakers East.

Mountain Tone – new album getting together

The recordings of the new album is now complited and Mika has started mixing the whole thing.  You could say this album is sort of mixture of Spirit Rising and Night Overdrive vibes. Plenty of 80′s synth tones but the whole production is on another level with live drums and bass. There’s depth and dimension in every possible way. Basically this is a collection of best tunes Mika has composed during the last 3 years. Some of the best tunes Mika has ever written on board. Like all previous Mr. Fastfinger recordings, this is an adventure for your ears and imagination. The title of the album is “Mountain Tone”, hope you’re up for more music. Stay tuned for more details!

New album out + Mika Tyyskä with Troy Grady – Live stream

Night Overdrive, Mika Tyyskä’s debut solo album is here! Pure musical joy with melodic guitars, 80’s style synth and odd machine beats. Kind of like Synthwave with heavy guitar, but different! Inspired by John Carpenter, Schwarzenegger, Van Damme, Seagul… action movies! From hard rocking bad ass tracks to soothing night time atmospheres. Incredibly crunchy sound. All music was recorded on 4-track and 8-track tape. That’s right, c-cassettes!!!
