Finnish rider Antti Autti has come a long way since defeating the likes of Danny Kass and Shaun White in the 2005 X Games Superpipe. With a mean streak of podium finishes in his back pocket, Autti stepped away from the contest scene and began to pursue snowboarding on his own terms. Autti now spends his days crushing powder in the backcountry, filming back to back films like Relate to It and AntiOut. The latest and greatest from Antti comes in Approach & Attack, a two year project set to drop next fall.

Here, for your listening/downloading/snowboarding pleasure, are two playlists from the legend himself:

A-SIDE B-SIDE

 

“I usually ride with music everyday. A-Side is all about riding fast in powder and getting lost in the trees  — especially songs from Death Hawks and Jolly Jumpers are the best examples for this. I usually listen to this playlist before hitting tree line powder fields in Japan or BC. B-Side is when I really need to crank myself up a bit before hitting a jump or riding a line! Or trying a new trick..I need some 80’s tunes or serious stoner heavy for this! Probably the new Witchcraft song – Deconstruction – describes the meaning of this playlist the best!” — Antti Autti
