Like all classic partnerships in the vein of hornet and kato or riggs and murtaugh, Villa Nah is a combination of two opposites: Tomi & Juho. I met Tomi at an early age before elementary school, we quickly developed a friendship over tiny micro machines toys and macgyver episodes. After school I spent countless of hours at their house, hearing his big sister's beatles records in the background and dreaming of never having to do homework ever again.
We remained close through all these years, a small miracle considering how fleeting friendships can be. But even more so as we're still quite different from one another: Tomi keeps a calm and collected demeanour, i get silly mood swings. He listens to complex IDM, I like catchy pop. Tomi knows how to reroute a midi controller onto a 101 sequencer, I ask myself 'how do you turn this thing on again?'
Maybe it is my complete idiocy towards anything that requires a level of technical understanding, but i guess Tomi is like a real life macgyver to me. He just knows how machines work... at times he even talks to them. (I'm sure they reply with bleeps and blops.)
Villa Nah exists mostly because of this balance, Tomi knows the tech, I just work the pop.
