Henrik Kantola, aka Chantola journeyed into the world of electronic music at the start of the millennium. Inspired by some of the top jocks and a self-driving passion, this young Finnish talent began to produce in 2003.
Using Acid Pro and a hardware sequencer, Chantola played with basic loops and short tracks. As he refined his methods with a desire to do more, his hunger grew to buy newer equipment and software.
It was in 2007 that Chantola really had his break, teaming up with a Helsinki based producer Jussi Vuorivirta, he formed a duo and Spiritus & Asper was born with full tunes beginning to materialize.
In December 2008, their first completed production with the title Passion was snapped up by Oulu based Wavedata Records.
As the momentum flowed, so did the label signings. With tunes released on Spinnin’ Records, Black Hole Recordings, Baroque Records, Mistique Music, Bonzai Progressive and many more, this young Producer seems to be doing something right.
With several releases in 2009 Chantola really got things going. Having his tracks on several CD compilations and Vinyl. He gained airplay from the biggest stars on the globe like. Armin Van Buuren, Markus Schulz, Mr. Sam, Leon Bolier, M.I.K.E, Menno De Jong, Lange, Eddie Halliwell and many many more.
Chantola continues to impress and you will be sure to see his efforts praised on many turntables around the world.
His partnership with Banshee Worx aka Bonzai Progressive is flourishing with many successful releases and remixes under his belt including “If All That Glitter Is Gold” and a remix of the classic Airwave single “Above The Sky” which added a Balearic vibe to a club monster.
His latest work was released on Bonzai Progressive in 2012, “Make It Happen” is a cool summer vibe backed up with impressive remixes.
