We could never imagine the reception of Gulf Stream Riders’ first single, “Love Struck Holiday”. Since the release in January this year it has played on radiostations in the UK, US, Holland and Scandinavia.
We are now proud to introduce single no. 2 : “Not that Someone”. Give it a listen :)! We hope you like it!

For the third year in a row, D8 Music released a Christmas song. This year it is called “Tuhlaajapojan joulu”, performed by Jore Marjaranta. A beautiful Finnish ballad with that perfect Christmas touch, just begging to be listened to during the holiday season.
We are also very excited to announce a new collaboration between Suvi Hiltunen and Jani Forsman (known from the Finnish band Jani & Jetsetters). Their newly released duet “Ota musta kiinni lujaa” has been no 1 on the most wanted list almost every night for several weeks in a row on Radio Iskelmä. New material from this dynamic duo is coming up soon!
We are thrilled about all new exciting projects starting already in January 2018 :)! We will keep you posted ;)! For weekly news: follow us on Facebook and Instagram. Stay tuned :)!
We have been busy, as always… For recent updates, please follow us on Instagram and Facebook.
Sean Smith ‘s new single “Magic” was released in May. Co-written and produced by Nalle. Released in Finland, Sweden and Norway through D8 Music. Co-writers Petri Somer, Paul Oxley and Sebastian Rejman. More singles and even an album will be released in 2018.
Zühlke released her single “Closer” in April and in August came the latest single “Die Again”.
We have had busy days at D8 in the past few months. Zühlke did an amazing performance finishing second in the Finnish Eurovision final UMK in January 2017. This is certainly a lady you will hear more from in the future!
The D8 Music song “Hetket kuvina” by our own artist Jore Marjaranta (eng. Moments in Pictures/ Moments captured) found a perfect place to call home in the tv-commercial for the photo company ifolor. We are truly thrilled about this collaboration!
So far we have released the following songs during 2017 (including the different versions of Zühlke’s Perfect Villain):
A lot more coming up, eg new stuff from Zühlke, Sean Smith and Rebecka Karlsson. Stay tuned!
D8 Music’s own artist Zühlke is one of the ten Finnish candidates competing for a ticket to Kyiv and the eurovision song contest 2017.
The national competition is called UMK (Uuden musiikin kilpailu: the competition for new music) and the spectacular show is taking place on Saturday the 28th of January at Espoo Metro Areena.
Zühlke’s song, Perfect Villain is written by Nalle Ahlstedt, Christian Ingebrigtsen and Silya Nymoen.

Those of you who have wished for some national updates are now in for a treat :). We have a lot of interesting stuff going on in that department at the moment. Finland’s answer to Justin Bieber: teenage pop-icon and multi-platinum selling artist Robin just released a new album including the song “Tatuoitu” (Ahlstedt, Paalanen, Constantine, Robin). Another piece of good news is an album release from the very belowed and legendary Finnish artist Vicky Rosti, now celebrating 40 years as an artist. Track no.7: Susilapsi (Ahlstedt, Svärd) got the best review (in Finnish) possible! Helsingin Sanomat, Finland’s biggest newspaper called it a real jewel. Another Finnish interesting release is “Mä meen” (Ahlstedt, Finnish lyrics by Nomi, English lyrics by Fuentes) by young and up-coming artist Nomi. This one also produced by N. It will reach out to you on airplay by the end of next week: Stay tuned! I&N
Sweet as candy and a sight for sore eyes: Chinese pop-star Jane Zhang’s record samples arrived a couple of days ago. The lovely chocolate box look-alike contained a cd, posters and bonus tracks. Something for the European market to copy when record sales are dropping! Who could resist this kind of package?
Song no.10: on the album “The seventh sence” newly released is by Nalle Ahlstedt, Petri Somer and Herbie Crichlow. Although the dolphin princess of c-pop still is quite unknown in our part of the world, the situation is quite different in China. This Oprah Winfrey clip says it all :)!
A lot of other stuff and releases going on as well. Promise to keep you all posted asap!
