Mono Junk Presents Suomen Moroderit | Vortex Traks

And yet another release from Vegboy Vertical's label Vortex Traks. This time from a real classic producer Mono Junk aka. Kimmo Rapatti.

Kimmo Rapatti aka Mono Junk is a true underground techno pioneer. In 1992 he started the label Dum Re- cords, creating a platform for his own output and a way to express himself on his own terms.

Kimmo is responsible for some of the earliest techno productions ever emanating from this very special region of Europe, known for its remarkably high quality music scene. Ever since then, Kimmo Rapatti continued producing and (re)-defining the sound of electronic music as a dedicated pioneer, being responsible for many renowned and beloved classics. His most famous track “Melody Boy 2000 – Monotonous Fantastique” is considered by experts and tastemakers as one of the best Finnish techno tracks ever made.

Up until present times, Kimmo never used any software programs for his productions, and he swears he never will – which is why he’s known to be called “Analogue Junkie”.

After a small hiatus, Mono Junk is back, making credible appearances on the labels Forbidden Planet and Skudge Records, while also intensely working on his live performance. In both his dynamic performances and productions, his signature sound is a deep, dense mix of notice- able influences from Detroit, Chicago and as in one of his most known tracks “Channel B” a little bit of Basic Channel with a twist of the seemingly endless winters of Finland.
