Fanu, the Finnish breakbeat field agent, started making music in 1992. He has always stuck by his long standing passion for erratic and evolving rhythms, and he had his first releases in the early 2000s. From his energetic breakbeat workouts in stand out drum and bass tracks such as the critically acclaimed Siren Song, through his crunchy hip hop productions as FatGyver, up to his modern day D&B experiments blending breaks and 808s inspired in part by the fresh influx of new rhythms such as footwork, his productions exude funk, a veritable mishmash of styles that have always stayed true to style and shied far away from standardisation.
Always a busy man in the lab, Fanu's had his music released on Subtitles, Ninja Tune, Commercial Suicide, Offshore, Darkestral, and several other labels. He's collaborated with Bill Laswell, remixed Amon Tobin, and even had his beats on a Nine Inch Nails record, making sure his breakbeat workouts go all global. His breaks and DJing expertise has taken him around the world. When Fanu is not busy with the beats, he's teaching others how to make some or audio engineering for other producers.â€‹
