Biography

It was about 500 CE when a guy called Boddhidharma started a long and heavy journey from India over the Himalayas towards China. He carried with him a rare collection of Buddhist texts to get them there where people were still unaware of the Buddhist teaching of emptiness.

About 1500 years after this happened, sometimes in the late 1980´s, in the small and distant country of Finland young Kristo Tuomi a.k.a Roshi (1975-2009) started to experiment with a synthesizer and as he himself remarks, flipped out totally with the instrument.

The first love soon evolved into making trance and hard core sounds. As he grew up a bit the straight beat trance was left behind to be substituted with more interesting rhythms and soundscapes of drum ´n´bass, breakbeat and such. As he himself states, there was no other choice for him but to make music. And music happens in the audiences´ reaction on good tunes.

Roshi, formerly also known as Monk, has been a visible figure in the Finnish jungle over ten years. Around the millennium Roshi started with his friend Robin Grotenfelt the project Koe. They released one of the first drum n bass albums in Finland in the year 2002 on Exogenic Breaks Records. He has as well been involved in the Stealth Unit Sound Collective, Roshi and the Junkmen and The Jar. He has releases also on other labels besides Exogenic Breaks, such as Nine2Five Recordings and Botchit Breaks.
