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.”

When 2 Worlds meet article scanned 800Maini and Magneto Dayo were interviewed by Daily Press, Virginia, Samantha Camilletti in Summer 2017. The interview was published on July 17th, 2017.

‘When 2 Worlds Meet’ set to release this Summer

“Swedish Finnish singer Maini Sorri and hip-hop artist Magneto Dayo say they hope their new album “When 2 Worlds Meet” will shake up the stigma of genres and change lives after its release later this summer.

Maini Sorri Hongslo and Magneto Dayo, born Dashawn Williams, are two solo artists who came together purely by chance to create this album.

“It was a wonderful surprise that he found me on the internet and told me that he likes my songs and wanted to collaborate and record with me,” Sorri said. “It was really exciting. Two worlds definitely met.”

The album will be a mixture of hip hop and electronica pop.

Dayo was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., but moved to Newport News when he was 14, he said.

“This will sound like nothing you’ve ever heard. This album is really for the people that love good music,” Dayo said. “When I say that, I’m talking about the people that are not locked into one genre, but people that love the sound of great music, regardless of the genre.”

Although from different genres, Dayo and Sorri seemed to agree that their music is about bringing people together and binding them over a common cause.

“I hope that our songs will be many people’s favorites. I always hope that as many as possible will hear my music, enjoy it and share it, and I hope that we will spread peace, love and understanding to the world,” Sorri said. “Let’s appreciate our differences and treat each other as we want to be treated, with love and respect. We don’t want to build walls, we want to build bridges.”
