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!!!

I’m doing a live stream with the amazing Troy Grady tonight. It’s at 21:00 Helsinki time. Live with Mika Tyyskä, Tuesday August 21st, 2PM NYC / 6PM UTC

Mr. Fastfinger’s new single ”Secrets & Magic” is out. A gift from us to you!

Hope you enjoy your package for the holiday season 2017. Thanks for the great year! We recorded this tune together in my small studio. This is the first time we’re actually cutting a tune together at the same time. Just a few takes and that was it. Feeling very proud of the smooth flow in this recording. It amazes me that we even got all the lead guitars captured all at once. Music is real magic!
