Discovery: Axel Thesleff

Experimental Finnish artist Axel Thesleff is determined to keep you guessing in his music.

By Graeme Smith

New track Akasha starts quiet before strains of Indian percussion has you filing the track under ‘world music’ before an electro beat kicks in and suddenly you’re in the club. I’ve not heard this kind of electronic craftsmanship since the late, great Robert Miles and I’m loving it.

Hailing from Helsinki, Axel is an artist for anyone who loves something a bit different. Check out Akasha below.
