Fusing together electro house, trance and techno into his own unique brand of dance music, Jyri Hintikka aka MK8 has become one of the most intriguing electronic artists hailing from the Nordics. He is influenced by the hard hitting hooks of Will Sparks, Droplex & Mark Dekoda, which are integrated seamlessly into his cinematic breakdowns, reminiscent of the movie scores of Hans Zimmer and Vangelis.
Even at a young age it was clear that he had a passion for dance music. Through his closest friends, he quickly became embedded in the world of DJing. Having used the earlier years of his career in perfecting his sound and skill set as well as organizing underground raves, the budding talent was primed for something great.
