Roisto - Apart in Love

Taking his name from the Finnish word for ‘villain’, Roisto hails from the deep, dark forests of northernmost Finland, where he inhabits a small studio, filled with old analog synths, tape machines, and 12” disco records. It is within the confines of this musical safe haven that he creates his own stylish brand of disco.

His new EP features three original disco tracks, kicking off with the title track ‘Apart In Love’; a suave, shimmering track, complete with catchy sampled vocals, slick guitars, and super funky basslines. Bright synth chords follow on the undeniably infectious ‘I’m Who You Need’, before the third track of the EP ‘Call The Sky’ (feat. Gavril) presents a haunting modular make up, featuring huge synth pads, vocoder vocals, and orchestral elements.
