Biography

Mika Vainio = aka Ø, tekonivel, Kentolevi, Philus = half of Pan Sonic, Finnish electronic overlords. Ø released a number of cutting-edge minimal techno records during the early 1990s on the Sähkö Recordings label, prefiguring a great deal of today’s minimal scene (Vainio is a huge influence on Richie Hawtin, Sleeparchive etc). Ø shares Pan Sonic’s analogue sound and experimental approach, but is oriented more towards the dancefloor. All of Ø’s early records have been re-released recently, along with a new album, Kantamoinen.

    probably. album has a real isolationist, cavernous and glassy tone all over it. Vainio is on a roll lately. Kilo and Monstrance were both ace as well

    To those who are successfully scrobbling the new album to this page: how are you doing it? Is it just from having the auto correction thing on?

    won't submitting corrections on the artist name eventually fix it? I've submitted on artist and individual tracks. all for ø -> Ø

    re. "always": I checked your library and you have only been listening to Ø since November -- a mere two months. So much for your attempt to come off as some kind of super fan, upset that we're not talking about the new album. For those of us who have been scrobbling Ø for years, this is going to be more of an issue to suddenly find problems with the task. And the idea that no one should care about where the scrobbles end up is hysterical, considering that scrobbling is the entire point of this website. Anyway, to those who aren't interested in pointless arguments: I left a post on the forum and hopefully last.fm will fix the issue.

    oh, even that isn't working either.

    I didn't have auto-correction on, so I was getting my scrobbles go to the other one, even though this is the one they've always been tagged as! I put on my auto-correction in order to get them to scrobble here. Ridiculous.

    my scrobbles get "auto-corrected" to this Ø from that other ø, even though this Ø already is the one I tagged them with... how odd. [2] ughh, very annoying

    At least they get corrected. Mine don't. And I have it all tagged right (Ø).
