20180728_135537 Tunedloud reviewpic 800Review of When Two Worlds Meet was published in Tunedloud on May 21st 2018. You can read the whole review “Maini Sorri & Magneto Dayo – When Two Worlds Meet – A Global Sound” here.

Here are some quiotes:

“After having listened to her songs, Magneto Dayo contacted Maini Sorri on Twitter, with the desire to do a track together. They ended up putting together a 10 track album, “When Two Worlds Meet”, released via the Reya Music Label, and winning the Arzuk Music Award 2017 in the Best Hip-Hop/Freestyle category.”

“Some artists or albums can hit you so hard on a personal level that you can’t help but fall for them at first listen. Such is my liaison with Maini Sorri. Maini’s voice is such that it blends perfectly with the many varied instrumentation of her compositions.”

“With her breathtaking synthesis of Pop, Rock, and Electronic music, she has enthralled many, and now on “When Two Worlds Meet”, she takes her airy angelic voice deep into urban music territory.”

“He’s hard, she’s soft. He’s tough, she’s gentle. He gets down, she moves up. He’s the earth, she’s the sky. Together they represent the Yin and Yang in every song, completely confirming the theory of how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another.”

” Maini sings sweet melody lines with the elegance of a sea nymph, while Magneto releases a stream of consciousness with his streetwise wordplay, attractive rhyme schemes and smooth vocal flow.”

“This is an album built to be consumed with as many speakers as your room can hold – the beats, the voices, the atmosphere and overall beauty overwhelming your senses and painting lush rhythmic landscapes in your mind.”

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.”
