Jääportit – frostbitten music and atmospheric sounds from Northern Finland since 1997.
“Music based on dark desolate forests and frosty dreamlike realms — something that has always been, but forgotten by many.”
Jääportit was originally formed by Tuomas M. Mäkelä in Northern Finland at the autumn of 1997.
This one man music project works somewhere in between genres like frosty ambient, darkwave, experimental electronica and post-rock using both synthetic and natural sounds to create cold melancholic atmospheres. Tuomas solely deals with the guitars, keyboards and synthesizers to compose and produce the music. He also creates the visual side for the project.
During the years five full-length albums and various single tracks on different compilation albums has been released. New album Jääportit was released at February 8th, 2018!
The name Jääportit is written in Finnish language and could be translated in English as The Gates of Ice or The Frostportals. All album and track titles are written in Finnish too.
