“Polku“, a 4-track digital EP is out now on Lightless Recordings.
There’s no story behind it – other than a man coping with dark winter days, longing for a way out (“Polku” is Finnish – “a path”).
90–130 BPM beats – a mixture of downbeat, hip hop, footwork, and related styles.

It’s my birthday today, and birthdays involve gifts, right? Here’s one to ya’ll.
This track was recently sent to me a friend of mine from an encrypted hard drive that was almost forgotten, so big up to you, Mick “Muttley”, for going thru the trouble of salvaging this one…this one almost got lost forever.
This tune was made around 2003, and it definitely sounds like it in all its roughness…hardly any sub, the bass is quiet, levels are off, it’s distorting…yet it nicely displays the Fanu sound that was definitely forming strongly around that time. I made this one with a sampler and a bunch of floppies and a cheap mixer. Title is super deep, of course; it relates to a movie that I had watched prior to making the song.
Free download. Be easy on it…it’s old!
“Lumi” EP is out now.
I’m releasing all slower-tempo electronic productions that isn’t D&B as Janne Hatula (my real name) from now on. We’re talking about in bass music: there will be D&B as Fanu, too, as before, and there will be other styles and tempos, too, as this release shows you.

My new album, Polar, is out now.
It’s largely a return to Fanu roots with a little bit of modern spice thrown into the mix.
Wanted to get super busy with breaks once again, and the tone is deep, dark, and melancholic – just like the mindstate of those living up north.
It is only available through Bandcamp for now, but will show up in other main outlets some time in 2016. It’s a name-your-price release, as I believe that’s largely the way to go these days: you get to say what it’s worth. And if you want to grab it for free, feel free to; I’d only ask you to share it if you happen to like it.
Drum and bass for life!
