Kuukou Records to release posthumous Joonas L EP


In May 2019, the electronic music community mourned the heart-breaking loss of one of its brightest young stars, when Finnish DJ and producer Joonas L tragically passed away in his home city of Helsinki.

One of the most exciting emerging talents on the European techno circuit, with huge releases clocked on the likes of Kuukou Records, Gorilla Recordings, LS City Records and Tube & Berger’s Kittball, Joonas’ trademark output also enjoyed heavy support from some of the biggest names in the industry, including Adam Beyer, Coyu, Ilario Alicante, Len Faki and Anna, to name just a few. 

Now, just over a year since his passing, Joonas’ family and friends honour both his life and his sadly abbreviated musical career with a posthumous EP release, complete with three of the finest, previously unreleased tracks from Joonas’ white label catalogue.

Due for worldwide release on October 2 via Simina Grigoriu’s Kuukou Records, Joonas L’s ‘Victoria’ EP marks the late producer’s sophomore outing on the Berlin-based imprint, following the critically acclaimed, internationally celebrated release of his Kinky Panda EP back in March 2019.

Our premiere via NUDE Techno completes a remarkable final journey on Kuukou. The fitting, groove-filled closer, ‘Cut This’. Joonas L’s posthumous Victoria EP will be released on October 2 via Kuukou Records.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
