His clubbing 'career' began as a go-go dancer / club kid / photographer in the infamous Disco 2000 in New York in 1989. During his university years in Rovaniemi he organised parties and started DJing.
He lived many years in London and played and hosted in clubs such as WetYourself, Egg, Area, Nag Nag Nag, Crash, The Cock, Horse Meat Disco, Kaos and Actart. He even appeared on the Radio1 stage atLondon Pride with Mikko Karhu for hundred thousand people. His DJing style has varied from chilled minimal house at London's fashion week opening party to banging tech-house at afterhours clubs in Milan. In Helsinki he has played in venues such as Redrum, Kuudes Linja, Playground, and Jenny Woo. He has also played in Athens, Rome, Valencia, Paris, Zurich and Sao Paulo. Tatu has played alongside Ellen Allien, Dave Clarke and Boy George to name a few. His recent club project was Drag Attack!, a weekly club in Helsinki where all the guest DJs were dressed up too, including the best and most popular DJs of Finland and guests from abroad.
Tatu's music has been been played by DJs such as Severino and Stereogamous and his track "Place" was used as a theme tune for Basso TV's Cultivate series. He has collaborated with musicians Yogurinha Borova and Prestige mixing their voices into Tatu's alien bimbo house beats. Tatu has created soundtracks for fashion shows for Mert Otsamo and Patrik Prusak. Latest musical project was to create a deep techno track for artist Jenni Hiltunen's video called Mirage.
In addition to playing and producing music he is still, after all these years, enthusiastic to dress up in all possible colours and shapes and documents the nightlife with his camera. His unique looks have been seen on the pages of Interview, The Face, I-D, Sunday Times Style, Boyz, QX, Vogue(Japan), Vision(China) and on the pages of webzine KCTV which he co-produces with Kenny Campbell. Recently he was featured in Helsinki's Metro paper as the Geisha of the Clubland.
