Jyri Hintikka, better known as Radical Effect, is an emerging DJ and a producer of electronic music from Finland. His journey as a DJ started from the new years eve of 2011, though his fascination for music has been with him for all his life. “I have always been surrounded by music and I do love all of it, but electronic has always been the type of music that inspires and moves me the most.”
In 2012 Radical Effect kickstarted his career by performing in clubs, festivals and shows throughout Finland. He teamed up with Evarist Lehtomäki (a.k.a. Dr Muzzku) to form the DJ duo ‘The Royalties of Sound’. Together they organise raves, produce music and aim to bring a new tide to the sound of electronic music. Radical Effect is set on his conquest of the Finnish nightlife.
Despite his short career he has already performed in some of the biggest clubs of Finland and has no intention of stopping his musical revolution!
The current sound of Radical Effect combines raw basslines, ground shaking beats and uplifting melodies that will blow your mind on the dance floor. In 2012 Radical Effect released his first bootleg EP ‘This Is Who I Am’. The next year, Radical released his first original EP titled ‘Rush’ with the Swedish Bored To Debt Records and a separate progressive single ‘Beyond’ on Tiger Tycoon Records! In 2014 Radical collaborated with up and coming producer 4xcent and the young vocalist Emma P. The collaboration ‘Afterlife’ was by Digital Insomnia. His newest collaboration ‘Unison’ with Tommy Baynen was featured in Paul Van Dyk’s Vonyc Sessions podcast and reached 48th spot in the Beatport Top 100 trance chart in January 2015. Supported by the trance legend Paul Van Dyk along with Alex M.O.R.P.H, Ben Gold, Giuseppe Ottaviani and the finnish top collective Heavyweight Djs to name a few, Radical Effect is one of the rising stars hailing from Finland!
While spinning records he is not afraid to mix different genres from different times to create a sound that is interesting and fresh. Radical Effect represents a new brand of electronic music coming from Finland. “For me making and playing music is all about intuition and what feels right. I need nothing else.”
