Finland's Jori Hulkkonen has never been the one to paint himself in the corner.
With releases over the 25 years exploring 360 degrees on the musical radar, he's been hailed as "the most underrated producer in the world", "living legend of electronic composition" and "music's best kept secret".
Since his debut 12" in 1993, Jori has released over 20 artist albums, while singles, EP’s and remixes tick in well over 200 mark. Collaborators include people as diverse as John Foxx, José Gonzales, Chris Lowe of the Pet Shop Boys and Jesper Dahlbäck.
Jori has also co-written and produced number of tracks for the Canadian superstar Tiga, such as “Sunglasses at Night”, “Bugatti” and “Woke.”
As a DJ Jori has travelled across the globe ever since the mid 90's and played hundreds of clubs and festivals from Australia to Zurich – and every alphabet in between – spreading the vibe with his unique blend of house and techno, fueled by insatiable curiosity about the music's future and profound understanding of its past.
In addition, projects such as the Acid Symphony Orchestra, his synth-pop band Sin Cos Tan, and NUNTIUS, a film project with Jimi Tenor, have kept him busy in the last few years.
