Finnish techno DJ and producer Joonas L didn’t earn his reputation as a leading figure in Helsinki’s underground by chance.
His residencies at Shanghai’s ‘M2’ and Hangzou’s ‘SOS’ saw him sharing the booth with the world’s elite and picking up new tricks every week. Warming up for international artists like ‘Jay Lumen’, ‘Coyu’, ‘Len Faki’, ‘Moe Danger’, ‘Ellen Allien’… taught him how to get the dance floor moving and never to peak too early. And it’s also here where he won the respect of these artists and gained some high profile fans.
You can now find him lighting up the dance floor at Helsinki’s clubbing institution ‘Clinic’, where he helps curate the line-ups and continues to open for the world’s biggest movers and shakers.
His most recent productions came out on Simina Grigoriu’s ‘Kuukou Records’ and DJ YENI’s up and coming ‘Cyborgs in Love’, a label that has won many fans in the DJ ‘A-list’, including Adam Beyer.
After 20 years of delivering as DJ and 10 years as a producer, the Finn finally looks set to take his career to the next level. His forthcoming remix for Tube & Berger on ‘Kitball Records’ is finally set to define him as an artist.
Whilst his unique sound continues making waves across dance floors of Europe and beyond, Joonas is carefully planning his next moves. There’s one thing for certain, the Finn is ready to tour.
