This year’s IHME Club programme has been devised by Jimi Tenor and Nicole Willis. The Club combines musical styles, rounds off the IHME Days’ Saturday evening on April 5, and momentarily turns the Great Hall at the Old Student House into a dance floor.
Arriving from Sheffield as the Club’s special guests are the US-born DJ Maurice Fulton and the Japanese electropunk singer Mutsumi Kanamori, alias MU. Fulton’s long career began in the 1980s with the Basement Boys production team from Baltimore, and he is particularly known as one of the 1990s most popular underground house producers and remixers. Now appearing in Finland for the first time, MU’s original, aggressive singing style has won her friends around the world. MU performs solo, and has released three albums, with her most famous fans including Björk and Peaches. The evening will be brought to a close by the new Helsinki band Haunted by Hallucinations, who released their debut album in February, and whose psychedelic sound has been compared to Earth and Electric Wizard. The band’s leading light, Pete Toikkanen, is also known from the original line-up of The Soul Investigators.
IHME Club, Saturday, April 5 at 22-02 at the Old Student House. Between acts in the Club, DJs Tenor and Willis will perform in Café Vanha. Minimum age: 18. Free entry!
