Biography

“Wukimon’s gentle flowing electronica feels like drinking a delicious de-toxing smoothie. You feel it cleansing your insides, all completely natural and free-flowing.” That’s how the Brittish music magazine Playmusic Pickup described Wukimon in their April 2009 issue and it seems like quite a fitting description. The members of Wukimon have always used music as a way of dealing with their own emotions; as a terapeutical tool, so to speak. Releasing the music to an audience seemed secondary and many of Wukimons’ recordings had been lying around in a drawer for years before anyone thought of releasing them.

Wukimon was originally founded in 2002 by members Jonas Einarsson, David Jacobsson, Olof Sellgren and Jonas Borell. The project grew out of the psychedelic jam band Ronnie the Bull, formed by the same members some time right before the turn of the millenium. The first songs where recorded using a sony playstation with the fairly crude musicmaking program ‘Music 2000’. However, it’s a rare occasion when all the members of Wukimon are present at a recording session and much of the material released under the name ‘Wukimon’ is actually solo material by Jonas Einarsson.

In March 2008 Wukimons’ first release, the ‘Agni’ EP, saw the light of day. With a marketing budget of $0.00 the band did not expect much success, but through the internet the 6 track EP slowly started reaching listeners all around the world. The response from listeners and media was overwhelmingly positive, much to the delight of Wukimon. The song ‘Holy’ somehow found it’s way into a dutch radiostation and managed to reach the #1 spot on their toplist ‘Eigenwijze 30’, in competition with Radiohead, Metallica, Björk and many other well established stars.

    You can get the 'Complete Pack' with everything we've released from Bandcamp. No CD though. Can't really afford to print and distribute a CD at the moment.
