Recommends: Sami Suova (Shine 2009) Best of 2013

"In year 2013 I released an album with Shine 2009, did a decent amount of touring/traveling and made some songs that i'm really excited about. But most importantly, in 2013 I was introduced to some excellent new artists and became friends with the best people in the world. This list is about my favorite people of 2013"

1. Elo Suova

My son was born in late August. He'll be the voice of generation alpha.

2. Daniel Palillo

In 2013 me and Daniel hit it off and started hanging out more. He's one of the people that keeps me sane in Helsinki, and his latest collection 'Me Against The World' is his best to date.


3. Eugene Kotlyarenko

Eugene directed the best music videos of 2013: Slava's 'Girl Like Me', Shine 2009's 'Older', Julia Holter's 'This Is A True Heart' and Samo Sound Boy's 'Your Love'. He's one of my favorite people and minds on this planet.

4. Daniel Lopatin

Oneohtrix Point Never's latest album 'R Plus Seven' caught me totally off guard. I really enjoyed his previous release, but this was something else. Listening to an album from start to finish had never been this rewarding. I really don't know how he does it, which is always a sign of something extraordinary.

5. A.G Cook

A.G Cook's original tracks and remixes represent the most interesting pop music of 2013. In addition he's also running the most interesting new label of 2013: Pc Music.
