Karri O has now been deejaying for about nine years. In 1996 he opened a record store called Mono Records in his former home city, Tampere. In the summer of 1997 he decided to call it a day and moved to Helsinki to study and move on with his life. However, the concept itself did not die - but moved into the internet to continue it's life as an online record store. In 1998 Karri founded a DJ booking agency alongside Mono Records, and in 1999 the next logical step for him was to start a label of his own. The first release saw daylight on July 3rd, 1999.
As a deejay, Karri smoothly mixes funky, deep techno and some fine electro tracks together. In addition to waxing in a few of the best events in Finland, he's performed in Germany, Sweden, Russia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Canada and the USA and gained recognition from both party people and promoters. Althought his music is rhythmic and catchy enough to move any booty, there's always an element of pure sonic experimentation that keeps the music sounding fresh and interesting each and every time he's behind the decks.
