Jaakko Eino Kalevi

In 2014 Jaakko Eino Kalevi was one of the must-see talents at Eurosonic. The following year the Finnish multi-instrumentalist released an excellent eponymous album via the Domino imprint Weird World, once again proving he is a master at combining synth-pop, folk, funk and psych-rock into trippy experimental pop. Growing up in central Finland, Kalevi discovered Dream Theater's prog-metal and hip-hop and taught himself how to play guitar and use beat-making software before exploring reggae, disco, techno, and more. After a string of releases reflecting his omnivorous musical taste, his 2015 debut album has gained more and more attention, and now the single Deeper Shadows wins him an EBBA Award.
