Biography

Lost Weight is the moniker under which Jukka Vallisto releases sound works, made both by himself and with collaborators. On previous releases, pieces have taken the forms of sample-built 4/4 stomps, snaky rhythm excursions in time signatures like 15/8, and abstract contours navigating a space which harshness and smoothness cohabit.

Immune To Jewels (Some Place Else 2012) collects plunderphonic pieces made between 1995 and 2011, from a miniaturized Finnish lullaby, via several pieces made while working for (and broadcast on) London’s Resonance FM, to a stamping on, or succumbing to, a cornucopia of sins. Sometimes source material has been manipulated a lot, edited, resampled, layered, effected or otherwise treated. In other pieces, large chunks of works have been placed in each others’ majestic presence, bringing about a result that is yet greater than the hum of its already sublime parts.

Vallisto also plays with Helsinki freedom fighters Boris Morgana.
