20180702_153008 Kulturbloggen foto 180518Review of When Two Worlds Meet was published in Kulturbloggen (Culture Blog) on May 18th 2018, by Petter Stjernstedt. You can read the whole review in Swedish here:

Here are some quiotes, translated into English by Google and Maini:

“Uppsala and Brooklyn. Synth and metropolis rap. Two worlds meet when Finnish Swedish Maini Sorri and American Magneto Dayo beat their bags together. With 20 singles and 5 albums behind her, Uppsala-based Maini Sorri, 57 years old, was looking for something new. At the same time on the other side of the globe in the hipster neighborhood of Brooklyn, an enthusiastic Magneto Dayo is listening to Maini. He loves the music and contacts her immediately. Maini and Dayo decide to meet. And four years later, the duo has completed his first joint album…”

“Dayo is famous rapper and producer, who has written and produced for many great artists in the hip hop scene. With his quick jaw and big vocabulary, he gives weight to the production. And Maini with her unique voice adds an elegance. Magnetos rap and Mainis synth create exciting dynamics…”

“Blue Song was released in 2014 and quickly climbed up on the National Airplay Top Charts list. It’s a dance-like piece where the tough reggae is mixed with dance hall and electro. “Second Chance” puts a nice synth-breaks across the beats.”

“When Two Worlds Meet”, the great highlight of the album, is the modern Kendrik Lamar that hits perfectly.”

“Together, they explore conventions and clamps with resolute strides over established domains. “When Two Worlds Meet” is an album with a big courage. When two worlds meet, beautiful things can happen. In these times of tightened migration policy and xenophobia, it is a message we cannot hear too many times.”

Maini Sorri - Parting Of Our WaySome cuts from Maini‘s Parting Of Our Way reviews:  Jer at Sleeping Bag Studios writes: “Parting Of Our Way”ends up becoming quite the ride through a clever metal-melody that’s got a brilliant display of contrast between sweetness and the extreme. Orlando Mestre of the USA slays the guitar-parts completely, flexing much musical-muscle, style, chops & skills…”

“Orlando was a perfect choice to bring out the vibrant guitar-riffs and non-stop energy that fuels the music of “Parting Of Our Way” – and Maini is an equally-perfect choice to bring the lyrics/vocals to life through stunning contrast.”

“…it’s the magic in Maini’s performance that makes these words come alive.  Her sweetened tones sound innocent, yet bold in the mix of the music around her voice…”   Read the whole review here

A&R team at Got That Music LLC Records/All Purpose Music Group LLC writes: “The vocal performance has a soft angelic delivery with good melody range.”.. “The overall track sound is up to industry standards, good mix. Maini Sorri is a talented singer with a powerful produced musical composition!” “It’s a great song to be placed in movies and on television.” “Very marketable record!”

“Great overall sound, this team of producer, songwriter and singer have a lot of potential together!”

Rick Jamm at JamSphere writes: “The whole rock, ambient metal idea, is really cool, and blending it with Maini’s airy, high pitched vocals provides an interesting contrast.” “Her delivery is excellent, she has wonderful tone, and her harmonies sound absolutely beautiful.”

“When the music transitions from a heavier phase of the song to a dreamier, spacy feel, these transitions flow nicely. Guitars fade appropriately, percussion switches to a softer, electronic effect, and the vocals take the forefront, highlighting the strength and beauty of Maini’s voice.”

Brian Lanese & Orlando Mestre produced the track, and they did a fantastic job.”.. the two producers seemed to have clear ideas, without over producing. In conclusion, this is simply a fantastic track.” Read the whole review here:

Brett Stewart at Independent Spotlight writes: “The intensely prolific songwriter, who now has 25 albums in her discography, has proven to be a resilient and compellingly creative talent.” “Written by Gary Cornman with instrumentation by Orlando Mestre, the powerhouse track is arguably one of the more driving, bombastic efforts in Sorri’s catalog”

“Vocally, I’d perhaps align Sorri with a performer like Yoko Ono. She has a very expressive, unique voice, and it’s a good one, too.”…”I adore how Sorri harmonizes with herself; it’s a great sound.” “Parting Of Our Way’ is an excellent track. I love that Maini Sorri is continuing to experiment within her sound.” Read the whole review here

Andrea Caccese at The BandCamp Diaries writes: “Maini is a rare talent: she is great on melodies and on moody vibes, but her brand new single, “Parting of Our Way” is also proof that she can really rock when she wants to.”

“The song features really great overdriven guitar tones as well as some really powerful drums and some beautiful synth keys.”… “Maini particularly shines on this track by layering multiple vocal harmonies that truly constitute the vocal strength of this track.” “The song is fairly different from most of her previous work, and it is incredibly refreshing to see an artist that isn’t afraid to challenge her own boundaries and constantly experiment with new things and new takes on sound.”

Maini Sorri - I Fall To PiecesMaini‘s rock single I Fall To Pieces got excellent reviews. Rick Jamm from London writes in Jamsphere Magazine:

“Like all of Maini recordings, I Fall To Pieces proves to be an extremely rewarding listen as its internal complexities unfold…As usual Maini once again shows that she is at the top of her game vocally. The song’s musical and lyrical thoughts are delivered in the clearest manner they could ever be”. Read the whole review here

Brett Stewart, Chicago, Tilting Windmill Studios writes: “Sorri’s vocals are solid, as usual…I’d actually align her vocal style to that of Yoko Ono. I mean that as a compliment, too…Sorri’s typical pop sensibility is infused into ‘I Fall To Pieces’ as well, and it’s a catchy tune.”Read the whole review here

Bree Morcroft, freelance writer from Melbourne, Australia writes: “After a slow-building, atmospheric introduction, ‘I Fall To Pieces’ explodes into a slightly unexpected, but pleasing bright burst of pop goodness the moment the vocal kicks in.” Read the whole review here

Bradley Rust, freelance writer from Sydney, Australia writes: “Maini follows up the impressive collaboration single ‘Second Chance’ with a new single of her own. To start with, my first vibe is a little Nightwish style from the opening 30 seconds before the pace eases a little and her voice takes centre stage”. Read the whole review here

More more sound writes: “I Fall To Pieces” is a truly stunning track with a rock edge that feels emotional and fragile, yet uplifting and direct, highlighting Maini’s strong ability to turn touching personal stories into amazing melodies with a purpose”. Read the whole review here
