I am working on a tape re-issue of 2014 album ARKIVO for Satatuhatta label. Originally it was/still is available for free on my BC page, but the tape is comin out gorgeous, and also will sound better because of tape.
It is a “noise travelogue” from my trips around those times, street recordings from Denmark, Mexico, Finland + some homebrew junkstrument chaos. Despite the crazy amount of hours that went into this I think not too many people noticed this major work because of it’s “throwaway” format (free digi).
Insektio CD’s & tapes are finally here, from Russia with löve.
– Kartio “Sähkömusiikki” 2xTape (Satatuhatta)
– Kolari IV CD (Ei Armua) –> KSNK // MOOZZHEAD // MOGAO // TYHJÄ PÄÄ

Last batch of 2020 noise
available now gone.
Häkki: Eraser Of Language -C60 tape (NEKO-35)
Full album of creepy tape manipulations, twitchy elektronix and cavernous spaces. 2015-2020 closure. 50 made. Also on Bandcamp.
Umpio: Root Rot -tape (NEKO-33)
Umpio: Nahkajeesus -3″CDR (NEKO-34)
As a tribute to BLJ and Radiopuhelimet here is crude elektronix in semi-monolithic HNW style. VCVRack to tape, slightly edited in Reaper. No overdubs/layering.
The patch ran mostly unattended for a few days, during which the tapes were dubbed. Recycled tapes, length may vary. So each tape is different.
This is also on Bandcamp. The BC packet combines the “Root Rot” tape and “Nahkajeesus” 3″-CDR.
The tape and CDR version are not for sale, trades only.
Both are editions of 33 each.
Curtis Roads / Todd Barton –CD
Due to ongoing demand:
Expanded reissue of this cassette release from 2016. All the original material, of course, but also an exclusive Todd Barton remix/re-work of Roads’s source material.
The original cassette-only release featured a noisy and pontillistic version of a new piece by professor Roads, a spiraling train crash bordering on harsh noise… and Krell music by Barton: outerworldly space contemplations, with a touch of a distant future from a parallel past.
Both are legendary figures of electronic music and I’m super proud to present this release to the world.
SM/DP: Plasmasynthesis LP
(Huge Bass Records // HB020)
Second album, LP edition of 100 on Huge Bass Records.
Get it from hugebass.bandcamp.com
Electromicroscopic deconstruction of time-space.
The sonic trip is like falling backwards into dark waters, disintegrating into smaller parts and getting filtered through the bottom sands into the shifting seismic infralayers of a timeless earth.
Graphics are provided by Pink Twins, recycling outerworldly visions of
their video synthesis piece “Parametronomicon” (2016) and the
silkscreened cover prints are made at Primeval Vision in Oulu.
New album on Freak Animal records. Junk electronix evolved regression.
Already out in July 2020… Reissue CD of Taklamakan vs Umpio LP via Narcolepsia and White Centipede Noise. Original run of 100 x LP in 2014 via A Dear Girl Called Wendy records. No remaster, no bonus… Just classy noise junk archeology.
SUOMI NOISE KOLARI II
4 way CD of contemporary junk abuse, power electronics, doomsday drones, and tape noise.
APRAPAT // KOVANA // AHOLA & SILANDER // HÄKKI
Available from the artists, later from the usual suspects.
