Introducing Jääportit

Evoking the Winter Spirit

Jääportit conceived by artist Tuomas M. Mäkelä amidst Northern Finland’s remote landscapes, spans a musical journey from ’97 dungeon synth to contemporary frost-rock, meticulously crafting compositions that summon cold and dark atmospheres.

Navigating the realms of frosty ambient, darkwave, experimental electronica, and post-rock, Jääportit expertly weaves synthetic and natural sounds, creating melancholic atmospheres for desolate forests and dark dreamlike realms.

Tuomas, the creative force behind the project, handles guitars, bass, keyboards, synthesizers, and drum sequencers, occasionally collaborating with guest musicians in the process.

Embarking on an exploration of cold soundscapes, Jääportit boasts a discography of five full-length albums and contributions to various compilation albums. The latest self-titled release, unveiled on February 8th, 2018, marks a significant milestone in the artist’s musical journey.

With each release, Jääportit extends an invitation to listeners, guiding them on an introspective journey immersed in haunting melodies and evocative soundscapes.

Explore the enchanting musical world of Jääportit, where the fusion of icy atmospheres and musical mystery unfolds into a captivating tapestry of evocative beauty.

The meaning of the name


The name “Jääportit” is derived from the Finnish language, where “Jää” means “Ice” and “Portit” translates to “Gates” in English. It can also be interpreted as “The Gates of Ice” or more freely as “The Frostportals.”

This name perfectly encapsulates the essence of the frostbitten music created by Jääportit, serving as a constant source of inspiration.

The word “Jää” signifies the freezing coldness, while “Portit” conveys a sense of grandeur, representing a portal or gateway between the realms of dreams and reality, adorned with a layer of frost.

In keeping with the Finnish roots, all album and track titles are also written in Finnish. However English translations for these titles can be found on the website.
