Infekto has been the broken beats pioneer in Finland since 1994. Co-founder of the first Finnish breakbeat label Pyssy and half of the chart topping hip hop/beats producer duo Skillsters. Skillsters is responsible for producing the first ever finnish hip hop album (2000) and was also hired to produce and be a part of the live act of Finlands biggest dance music export Bomfunk Mc's on their 3rd album. Many Finnish hip hop acts have also hired Infekto's avantgarde scratching skills and his fierce breaks and drum&bass dj sets have been heard from Tampere (Where his eclectic breakbeat club "beatformers" is running its 9th year!) to New Delhi.
Infekto's tunes combine the whole spectrum of broken beats from funk to hip hop to nu-breaks to drum& bass not forgetting the raw ol' skool hardcore sound of 92' and a touch of jazz. His first release on nine2five "Left hand Jazz" got rave reviews from some of the biggest names in the business: appeared on a Gilles Peterson comp
on the cover of MUZIK magazine etc. That opened the flood gates. What followed was wide variety of breakbeat mayhem and critical acclaim on such UK labels as Passenger, Hospital, Menu Music and Heavy Disco. His debut album "Occam's Razor" (2005) pulled together all the biggest 12" hits and sprinkled some real goodies on top. Brand new tracks including Flash Lighter("One of the biggest tunes this summer"-IDJ/"Single of the month" - TTR) and "Miami Treble" got support from all the A league breaks DJs. Occam's Razor made it to the top 15 on breakspoll albums 2006 as well.
Infekto was voted for the best electronic music dj and artist in Finland @bassogaala 2006 and again best electronic music dj 2007.The poll had over 40 000 individual votes! On top of all this he also has a radio show on national FM channel "Ylex" - so keep them promos posted! ;)
