Ercola and Heikki L - Sax (Original Mix)

While Norway and Sweden have been given plenty of attention by the dance music community, they’re not the only Scandinavian countries producing hot electronic beats. Over in Finland, Heikki L has steadily built himself a career as one of the most exciting names in dance music, and over the last couple of years his energy-packed, feel-good take on peak-time house music has begun to find him big fans across the world. Heikki started DJing at the prodigious age of 13, and beginning his career at such an early age meant that by the age of 19 he was already several years into producing, and some of his earliest work signed to Sony in Finland. From there onwards, he found success in numerous different projects, spanning the full spectrum from underground club bangers to big mainstream success. Thumping trance tracks under the name Modulation found their way on to Above & Beyond’s now-defunct Hard On label, Paul van Dyk’s Vandit, and Ferry Corsten’s Purple Eye – while his successful Dallas Superstars project saw him co-produce the album Rush with Darude, one of Finland’s biggest musical exports of all time.
