An instrumental space-disco adventure from Helsinki, Finland? Why not, I say. Behind the moniker Lumeet is Väinö Ala-Härkönen, whom earlier was better known for his Aleksi Virta Meets Torsti At The Space Lounge LP that was released in 2004. ”Do you hear the ghosts of Yellow Magic Orchestra and Kano having fun with Lindstrøm and Prins Thomas in a makeshift spaceship?”, Väinö asked me in his e-mail, and I assume a better description of his sound couldn’t be more fitting. Funky, galactic and a tiny bit mysterious.
