Passionate DJ.
Avid music lover.
Breakbeat-o-holic.

Those are some of the descriptions that fit Fanu.
While living in the rather dark and cold North of Finland, he got into the jungle thing in the mid-nineties – soon after hearing some electronic music during the earlier years of the decade. Around that time, he also started experimenting with electronic music and sampling for the first time.

“I lived in a small countryside town, where I didn’t really have anything better to do. My friends exposed me to some early electronic stuff and I was blown away immediately. Soon I found myself trying to emulate the tracks I heard, sampling, layering and combining all kinds of different sounds.”

But it wasn’t until he heard jungle that he knew there’d be no turning back:

“It was so different! The beats, the BREAKS! The flow of that music was so different from all other types of electronic music I had heard. Every time I heard a breakbeat, I felt different. It sounded so much better than the average four-to-the-floor beat.
Well, fast forward to today: I’m creating modern jungle and breakbeat music with aesthetics that come from the past,” he says. “More often than not, in the music that I write, there has to be some of that same breakbeat action that I used to hear because what blew me away in old drum and bass and jungle was the mind-blowing syncopation. For me, the breaks were what made jungle what they were back then, and I’m after the same elements today. The drums are the backbone for sure!”
