A decade is a long time in the dance music industry. A decade spent in the very epicentre of clubbing, exploring the fine art of production and the magic of DJing, can give you can give you a truly instinctive feel for the next big thing.
That’s exactly what a decade in the music business has done for Finnish DJ and producer Ville Lope.
As a DJ, he’s crafted a style which is both sophisticated and dancefloor-friendly; as a producer, his original tracks and remixes have graced world-famous labels like Armada, Bonzai and Solaris. His productions have been spun to death by the likes of Andy Moor, Airwave, Sied van Riel, Miika Kuisma and Mr. Sam. He recently cemented his status as an A-list knob-twiddler with a classy remix of trance maestro Airwave.
In his role at A&R for Finnish label Finity, Ville developed a keen ear for upcoming talent. His skills didn’t go unnoticed, and in early 2009 he was hired by Miika Kuisma to head up the A&R side of Bonzai’s Subtraxx label.
Ville Lope’s sound blends different flavours of progressive trance: from deeper tracks through to full-on melodic scorchers. You’ll find driving, solid basslines throughout his sets and productions.
Over the past 10 years, Ville has DJed all over Finland, establishing himself as a connoisseur of progressive who never fails to ignite the dancefloor. It’ll come as no surprise to hear that he’s often been booked alongside international superstars like Marcus Schössow, Ronski Speed, and John O´Callaghan.
Ville’s set to unleash numerous original productions over the next few months through the legendary Bonzai label group. This, coupled with his recent signing to Bonzai Entertainment, means that things are better than ever for this talented young artist.
Like we said, a decade is a long time, but you’ll be sure to see much more of Ville Lope before this year is out…
