Positive and energetic music from Finland since 2000!
Beats and Styles is a musical project founded by two producers/DJs DJ Alimo and DJ Control. The idea is to combine different styles with different styles thus creating some original sounding music packed with positive energy.
We're releasing music in different countries in different order. So usually the the latest videos/music introduced on this website won't be available in your territory with the same time as in our home territory in Finland. It would be great to have separate websites for different territories, but unfortunately we're doing the site by ourselves - so we have to make some compromises in order to have at least some good info.
Beats and Styles' claim to international fame started in 2003 with the the single Dynamite that featured among others the rapper from Bomfunk MC’s and Toni Wirtanen from the band Apulanta. In addition to the success in Finland, Dynamite was a hit in Germany, Sweden and Norway.
The single “Dance, Dance, Dance” has continued the international success with well received successful releases in Germany (top 60), Italy (top 10), Spain (radiochart #1) and South-Africa (radiochart #1). The track also got some good videoplay on the main French music tv-channels (M6 & MTV) and good responses through the release in Australia by Ministry Of Sound. There will be also a release of the single in England and Far-East soon!
The latest international succes has been with the single Take it Back featuring Papa Dee, that has done well in places like Italy, Russia, Poland and Spain.
Last year's You Got The Light did really well in Finland, Poland & Spain...
We're finally free from our commitments from past deals and can start to live up to today's music business. We're putting out the new stuff on our own label Tunne Recordings (originally started in 2000).
The new album is coming with some wicked new singles and videos. Check out the latest ones from the Music Videos section below. The new album will be available digitally worldwide late august. Physical distribution varies from country to country.

Beats and Styles is known for re-inventing themselves and their sound. The new album is probably the most radically different album so far. It’s a lot more organic and personal album than the predecessors.
They’re full of energy and ideas for the ESC. “A lot of times the songs on the Eurovision Song Contest are too calculated and manufactured. The songs we’re going to try with are just two hot tracks taken from the album it’s got to be real and something we’re going release anyway.”
