Inspired by a pile of John Digweed, Sasha and Deep Dish mix CD's, Homegrove started his journey into deejaying in 2001. Through hard grafting, consistent networking and spending almost every penny on music, Homegrove has developed a record collection to die for. Labelled as one of Finland’s top class DJ talents, he has won the hearts of many bigger Finnish deejays and charmed dancefloors across the country.
In 1987 Ipe was just your typical long-haired Trash-metal listening skater and a local teenage hooligan in the west coast of Finland in Rauma. Somehow his musical interests changed totally about a year later. It was probably because of a certain DJ called Tapani Ripatti and his legendary Ocsid-radioshow which got him listening to acid house and disco.
In 1989 Ipe started deejaying and organising school parties. He quickly gained a reputation of being a kind of bold and unconventional DJ who is not afraid of mixing various genres in his sets.
Hexe lives deep in the metropol of Virrat, where he makes music, collects vinyl records and studies audio engineering. Besides techno, electro, deep house and dubbier stuff he loves acid, synth pop and red wine.
In addition to deejaying and making music under his own name, he's a part of dub techno/house project Toisvesi and explores the universe through analog synthesis with Syntetisaattoriorkesteri Galaksi.
Not only does he have bad taste in music, he also looks like one of the coneheads. But that will not slow down his mission and that mission is to spread out the music deep from the underground of techno. In his sets you´ll hear sounds from the 80´s into the present time, from acid house to detroit.
