Mika Vainio’s quiet influence on electronic music was deafening – The Guardian (blog)

Posted: Tuesday, April 18, 2017

As one half of Pan Sonic with Ilpo Väisänen, Mika Vainio had a transformative effect on the deconstructed techno that lurks around the fringes of dance and electronic music. In fact, when news of his death last week, at just 53 years of age, was announced, I could think of few artists of his generation who had such a large influence in their field. Vainio’s influence on ambient and industrial…

Or Classical Music for Elevators? Seriously?) But I do appreciate the breadth of music available on Apple Music. While I listen much more to my own large music library, I often want to sample…

Pexels.com Streaming services are now the majority source of recorded music revenue, bigger than downloads, CDs and vinyl combined.

And did he…
