Kebu is an artist who creates new instrumental, melodic synthesizer
music using analogue synthesizers only. His music is distinguished
not only by a skillful treatment of analogue synthesis but also of an
audience- captivating live performance – his YouTube channel has
attracted over five million views and a lot of appraisal.
Kebu's debut album from 2012, To Jupiter and Back, was a tribute to
the great synthesizer music that he grew up with. The album was well
received – it went straight to Top 30 on the Finnish Album Chart and it
was nominated for "Best International Album" in the German Schallwelle
With his latest release, Perplexagon, Kebu has honed his craft and
produced a two-sided album, which mixes influences from both 70’s
and 80’s music as well as from modern electro in a distinct manner.
The album debuted as number 6 on the Finnish Album Chart and was
supported by a tour in Northern Europe, including concerts in Germany,
the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Estonia and Finland.
Kebu’s concerts are surrounded by warmth and joy, as well as a huge
arsenal of analogue synths. In 2012 he was nominated as "Best
International Artist" by the German Schallwelle Music Awards.
Kebu also does soundtracks. His latest work was for the
program Kvanthopp, airing each week on YLE Radio Vega. Kebu also
plays keyboards with Kouzin Bedlam, a prog metal band whose debut
album was released in 2014.
