Harmönia, the leading Finnish skweee label, is globally known for its unique and heavy-hitting funky sound.
Run by Scandinavian electro pioneers Mesak (Mr Velcro Fastener) and Randy Barracuda (Imatran Voima), the label has already released nine critically acclaimed albums and a pile of quickly sold out single releases. Despite the small pressings and strictly underground nature of the label, all Harmönia releases have been supported by high-profile DJs all over the globe such as Thom Yorke, Don Letts, Kode9, Mouse on Mars and Rob Da Bank. So far Harmönia's artists have taken their fresh basement funk to more than dozen countries and rocked audiences at clubs and festivals in Europe and North America. Bloc Weekend, Sónar Festival and Flow have already been done, let's see what's up next. Rolling Stone -magazine chose two Harmönia's artist on their hot list in 2010.
But anyway: Don't believe the hype, take a listen yourself. This music is definitely not for everybody, only for special people.
