Biography

Põhja-Tallinn is a district of the capital city of Estonia, but it’s also more than that.

The eponymous group, which was created in 2007, has constantly strived to improve and find its own lane. Thus far, there have been three distinct line-ups.
The first consisted of twelve MC’s residing in Põhja-Tallinn, who joined forces to create a gargantuan, eight-minute long borough anthem. 100 copies of the single were printed.

The next line-up, consisting of five MC’s remaining from the aforementioned line-up, recorded an 8-track EP, which they uploaded to the internet for free.

Their first video - made on a non-existent budget - was also created and was subject to an impressive 100 000 views over the course of a few months.

The third act took place at the 2011 Eesti Hip Hop Festival, where a band of three MC’s, a female vocalist and a three-member instrumental band - originally intended to give only one performance - took to the stage.

Over the course of the first few rehearsals it became clear that the collective was in great harmony and team spirit was strong. The rest has been something of a long family trip in the Estonian music world.

Driven by the aforementioned team spirit, a debut single Lähen ja tulen with a youtube video was soon released and became an instant success.

All Estonian radio stations started spinning the record one after another, 40 successful live-shows throughout Estonia ensued.

A full-length album Per aspera Ad Astra (available in iTunes,Spotify, etc) was released and the premiere was conducted - with an extended line-up - as a part of the R2 Live recording.
