Our guest this week is Finland’s Tatu Metsätähti, better known for his solo work as Mesak, and as one half of electro dons Mr Velcro Fastener alongside Tatu Peltonen. He’s been a big part of the electro scene in Finland since the 90s and is a key contributor to Dutch electro and techno label Klakson – run by Dexter and Berghain’s Steffi.

With a career spanning over 2 decades, this Turku based musician has played just about everywhere in Finland. In and out of electro, including the ethno rap of Ya Tosiba, to the twisting downbeats of his label Harmönia.
