The show took place in Geneva almost four years ago just months before the Finnish artist's death

Editions Mego has released an edited recording of the late Mika Vainio's last ever live performance.

Split across four movements, Last Live captures a show at Geneva's Cave12 which took place on February 2, 2017, just two months before the Finnish artist's death. Carl Michael von Hausswolff (mixing), Stephen O'Malley (pre-editing) and Denis Blackham (mastering) were all involved in editing the recording for release. You can listen to an excerpt of 'Movement 2' from the album above.

Last Live is out now on Editions Mego and Cave12.
