    Mystery Islands a.k.a. Jani Kervinen, Electronic dance music producer from Finland. Jani Kervinen started making electronic music in 1994. Therefore, you’ve hear some of the productions in all major trance channels across the internet, including: Trance Around The World, A State Of Trance etc etc. Also some commercial radio stations has been spinnin’ out Mystery Islands tunes.

    From those early days, there has been a lot stuff that happened: warming up Darude, when he came up with his ‘Sandstorm’ single back in the days, Spinnin’ at Wildchild birthday party at London, UK, Lived in UK by making music only etc etc.

    Jani kicked off with his first single ‘Jungle Breeze’ and it got rated with 5/5 starts in DJ MAG! Second single ‘Solace’ was written pretty soon after Jungle Breeze and it got some spice by vocals from a Finnish rock singer, “Keely” aka Juha Kiili. This vocal version didn’t get released as at it’s time, male vocals wasn’t the thing in Trance music.

    Also one of the most important break thru was a remix for Afterglow Records: “Arizona & Greg Murray – Daylight (Mystery Islands Remix)” After making music more and more, it was pretty obvious to collaborate with some others and soon Jani met Mika Savela and ‘Dyyni’ & ‘Kaste’ was born. Kaste – Desert Eagle got signed to Anjunabeats, and it was a huge success! Those were the golden trance-times I’d say.

    Then, some other stuff what is going on.. Jani is also known as a sound designer and plug-in developer. He has done a punch of soundsets for different synths, like Access Virus range, Waldorf synths, Roland JP-series and Apple Logic ES2 soundset! In development side, Jani has written AudioUnit & VST control, editor & librarian plug-ins for Access Virus, Roland JP-8000, Korg MS2000 and microKorg plugins. You need to check the plug-ins out, as they will ease your workflow with DAW – Hardware synthesizers environment.
