Santtu aka DJ Astro:

“When the Covid-19 pandemonia hit big time I, among other people, was forced to stay mostly indoors in a lockdown.

I realised that I had to do something creative to stay sane. It had been almost 13 years since I last was active making

music with my old band "Dark Sun", although I had joined in a couple of bands (UFO-tutkimuksia and Octopus Syng) last

year. I now decided that it was time to buy some new equipment and get into home-recording. Songs just started to pour

out of me like they were sent from another sphere. One finished song per day was very common. Most songs have been

pretty much written and recorded on the spot. Writing the lyrics was a bit harder so at first I used some of mine from the

Dark Sun days about 25 years ago…

I just had one problem: I didn’t have an electric guitar and ran out of money to get one. I also noticed that my own

pre-mixes were not good enough to be put out. Luckily my good old friend Scott Heller offered to mix some of my tracks

and he also had a solution for the guitar parts. His Doctors of Space colleague Martin Weaver would be interested to play

some guitar tracks to my songs. Wow! The stars were apparently aligned.

I want to thank these fine gentlemen from the bottom of my heart for making this album come true.

Thanks also to Don Falcone (Spirits Burning) for his constructive comments on my material, Sabine Pottien, Timo Peltola

and other friends who have supported me.

These nine tracks on Visions Of Infinity are the first ones to be finished ...."

‘Winds of Time’ dedicated to the memory of Sylvi Maria Laakso (23.12.1923 – 1.6.2020)

Dr Space (known from Øresund Space Collective / Black Moon Circle / Doctors Of Space...) says:

“The lockdown gave me an excuse to play music every day. The tracks on this album “lost in the space time

continuum” are the tracks that I produced mostly in March and April 2020, including one dedicated to Walter

(Roadburn) and another to a friend in California, Shane, who has been going through some rough times.

Hasse Horrigmoe (Tangle Edge, ØSC, ...) provided aural advice that was critical to the success of these track. Tusind Tak.

The music is often not so complex but generated to create emotion.

This album is dedicated to Magnus Hannibal, who first encouraged me to play music. He was a great friend.”
