EDITORS’ NOTES

Subtlety is certainly not on the agenda for Jare Joakim Brand and Ville-Petteri Galle, who came together in 2009 as JVG. The hip-hop duo quickly became a household name in Finland as they blazed a trail through the genre, laying their forceful flow over blaring 808s and air-raid horns. More laidback, Eastern-tinged beats were also in evidence, but they've since expanded their palette to add a murkier edge of grime to their music, challenging their fanbase to follow them into darker territory. It's even harder now to ignore this upfront pair—something their sellout shows clearly attest.
