One half of Deep Space Helsinki, an FM radio show he co-hosts with Juho Kusti. The show spawned a label offshoot of the same name, which so far has released two split 12-inches from Kemppi and Kusti. At last count, the Finnish techno producer had released material on 17 different labels. In 2006 Finnish label Pakkas-levyt released “Superkaapo” EP, Kemppi's first techno record. It was noticed abroad immediately. Marcel Dettmann was an early fan, he asked for music to release on his MDR label, but instead wound up using Kemppi’s track “Vangel” on his lauded Berghain 02 mix CD and also on a separate vinyl on Ostgut Ton in 2008. After being active for 10 years, dishing out spacey, hypnotic cuts for label like Prologue, Mote-Evolver and his own Deep Space Helsinki, Kemppi’s debut album “The Observer Effect” was just released last year Nov on M_REC. The album was made exclusively with hardware and arranged live, no doubt helped by Kemppi's experience as a live Techno performer.
