Hi everybody! We've been on a hiatus... the band is still alive, but the focus is somewhere else right now. I just wanted to get all our Beats and Styles people to support our great friend and collaborator Slarta John, because he need all the love we can get him. He's in the hospital right now and we need your support... To refresh your memory... here's some great records with him, some by us, some by artists like Basement Jaxx and Dj Zinc...
Slarta has been with Beats and Styles since the beginning and I want to underline the fact of how important he's been to us! Big up SLARTA JOHN! Check his page!
Here's some links to great videos and tracks he's done! I'm going to upload some other great songs he's made with us very soon as well!
Basement Jaxx: Jump & Shout
Slarta playing live with Beats and Styles (incl Jump and Shout)
Beats and Styles: Smilin' (our second single EVER!)
Beats and Styles: Allstars
Beats and Styles: Straight Up
DJ Zinc: Film
Hatiras: Spaced Invader

Hyvä meininki Italian keikalla viime viikolla! Näyttää lupaavalta meininki sielläpäin! Suomessa valmistaudun parhaillaan uuden musavideon kuvauksiin. Tiedossa ehkä yksi hauskimmista B&S videoista ikinä... Lisää infoa lähiaikoina! Lisäksi olen työstänyt uusia biisejä kansainvälistä julkaisua varten.
Julkisuudessa on viimeaikoina ollut kaikennäköistä keskustelua Alimoon liittyen. Muistutan vielä kerran että Alimo ei ole ollut kahteen vuoteen missään tekemisissä Beats and Stylesin kanssa eikä hänellä ole enää osaa eikä arpaa Beats and Stylesin musiikin, keikkojen tai minkään muun kanssa.

Here's a little something we did live on the air today on Radio NRJ in Finland. We asked the listeners to give us a subject matter (which was wool socks!) and a musical style combination (this time it was euro-dance with reggae)... We kicked it with Max'C on the music and hooked the video up with my brother Kusti Manninen! Just a little fun stuff for you!

This website is still a bit under construction, but it's got the basic stuff here: gigs, latest little updates from twitter, the latest videos, link to merchandise sales, promo pics + a little guestbook.
Check out the latest crazy ass music videos from below! Just got back from L.A. with the 3rd video from the new album. I'll release that one alongside the album late August. For our international fans: the digital version of the album will be released worldwide on iTunes etc. I'm working on the international distribution of the physical album too!

Kiitos kaikille jotka jaksoitte bailata kanssamme sateesta huolimatta Kuopion torilla. Ikävä kyllä meille ei kerrottu, että musiikki katkaistaan tasan klo 23:15.
Jäi tosi paljon harmittamaan, että emme ehtineet vetää You Got the Ligh biisiä! se olisi ollut seuraava biisi juuri ennen kuin Poliisit tulivat katkaisemaan musiikin. Se tuli meille täytenä yllätyksenä...
Olisivat antaneet edes kolme minuuttia enemmän!!!
Kuitenkin Kuopio: YOU GOT THE LIGHT! Mahtava meno!!!
Monday, August 11, 2008

Nice vibes yesterday in Hyvinkää, although I fell in the studio right before the gig and hit my head really bad... But after I got the vibes from the crowd I was up and going again. So thank you all!

We have the best of-compilation coming up strong and we've got two great new tracks made for it. They're called "You got the light" feat. Elastinen and "Straight up" feat. Cee-Rock the Fury, Slarta John, Jus Red & Max'C.
We've been pushing "You got the light" at the gigs lately, but yesterday was the first time we performed "Straight up". And it felt really good! Here's the proof. For practical/financial reasons we won't be abled to have all the featuring vocalists on the gigs, so here me and Max'C are doing the raps. The sound is quite rough because we just used the mics on the cameras, but it should give you a vibe about the energy onstage on that track! I'm so excited about the track that I wanted to share it with you!
Tuesday, March 18, 2008
We're celebrating the new best of -album on this weeks gigs... Be sure to check us out as we're performing both the new tracks: "Straight up" and "You got the light!"
Now working on the artwork for the album. Here's some tasters of the look:

Yesterday we were at the Eurovision prequalifications where people voted for which of the two of our songs we'll perform at the Finnish finals. Click from above to see the performance of "See the Signs" feat. Anorah – this is the song you voted for...
The performances in the Finnish Eurovision Qualifications have always lacked of presence and that's what we wanted to bring to the performance. We had some problems with monitoring, but we'll work hard to get them fixed for next saturday's finals.
Don't forget the album release party on Valentine's Day (14.2.2007) at Virgin Oil Company, Helsinki. The album's out on the same day.

In the beginning of the month we had our first gig in France. It was at the Le Reservoir - a great athmospheric place with a lot of history. Many big artists like U2 and the Cure have performed there in the past.
Then we went to play at the G! Festival in the Faroe Islands, although it was quite a catastrophy. We eventually ended up playing just 15 minutes at 4:15 in the MORNING! Anyway, Alimo finished the gig that was held on a beach by going to swim in the Atlantic - and the whole audience followed! So it was all good.
Some nice shows were also held in Finland, Rovaniemi Rock was one of the highlights.
Yesterday we came back from Poland where we participated in the legendary Sopot Song Contest! We didn't win though, but definitely made an impact! That was one hell of an experience.
This month we'll be going back to Poland on the 20th and we're also working on the release of our next single in Finland. It's callede "Tonite" and it's already been banging in selected clubs around Helsinki.
Monday, July 03, 2006
Tytti sent us some nice pictures from the show in Oulu. Thanks Tytti!
If you have photos from the shows, please send them over and we'll put them up here!
Also, don't forget the vote at radio NRJ's website!
