Genelec had the honour of presenting the ‘Producer Of The Year’ award at the recent Emma Gaala in Helsinki, Finland. The winner - Jurek - will receive a pair of Genelec 8351 SAM Series monitors.
Established in 1983, Emma Gaala is Finland’s most prominent music business event, and has been the annual showcase for the country’s most successful artists and music professionals. Organised by Musiikintuottajat – IFPI Finland, who select the nominees in the various categories, the final winners are voted for by a board of independent music reviewers, journalists and other music experts. The selection criteria include interesting musical merit, musical and commercial success in the recording industry, and the artist's popularity measured in a number of different ways.
A musician, songwriter and producer, Jurek has already notched up an impressive number of gold and platinum singles and is also one of the few writers to have written and produced a triple platinum single in Finland (Antti Tuisku’s ‘Keinutaan’).
We’re honoured to have participated in this year’s Emma Gaala, and offer our warmest congratulations to Jurek and all the other award winners!
