Sampo Ikonen celebrates two years of indie production that saw him involved in collaborations with various artists and rappers, bringing a “Renaissance” spirit to the hip-hop board.
Ikonen started making music around the age of sixteen, after attending a DJ course in Finland. Since then, he has connected with artists and rappers from around the world, writing music and creating tunes with Kieran Atticus, James Joyce, and Mandella Eskia, just to name a few.
So, after two years spent in some kind of research and development work, Ikonen arrives today to give us an impeccable, organic, and substantial release, which stands out for the style and elegance of its musical delivery.
A year is passed by, since I launched Nova Music blog, and quite a few things have happened.
Started in one of the saddest and darkest moments for the global music industry, and beyond, the blog saved gave me a (new) perspective on life, allowing me to remain close to that creative world that I love so much: that of music.
Behind me I leave a 3-year recording project, with 12 releases ready to be released only in the first year, dead on the vine. The result of collaboration with a young singer-songwriter, with the arrival of Covid-19 she disappeared … taking with her the result of months of analysis, study, composition, and recordings.
