Infekto (Riku Pentti) has been the broken beats pioneer in Finland since 1994. Co-founder of the first Finnish breakbeat label Pyssy and half of the chart topping hip hop/beats producer duo Skillsters. Skillsters is responsible for producing the first ever finnish hip hop album and was also hired to produce and be a part of the live act of Finlands biggest dance music export Bomfunk Mc's on their 3rd album.
Many Finnish hip hop acts have also hired Infekto's avantgarde scratching skills and his fierce breaks and drum&bass dj sets have been heard from Tampere (Where his eclectic breakbeat club "beatformers" is running 7th year!) to New Delhi.
Infekto's tunes combine the whole spectrum of broken beats from funk to hip hop to nu-breaks to drum& bass not forgetting the raw ol' skool hardcore sound of 92' and a touch of jazz.
His first release on nine2five "Left hand Jazz" got rave reviews from some of the biggest names in the business: appeared on a Gilles Peterson comp on the cover of MUZIK magazine etc. That opened the flood gates. What followed was wide variety of breakbeat mayhem and critical acclaim on such UK labels as Passenger, Hospital, Menu Music and Heavy Disco.
Infekto's dare we say it, 'infectious', breakbeat bootlegs on the unofficial "medcab" label ("Me Myself and I"&"Infekto's Message") have been among the most creative and enjoyable unofficial breaks mixes of the past years. His freshly released debut album "Occam's Razor" pulls together all the biggest 12" hits and sprinkles some real goodies on top. Brand new tracks including Flash Lighter("One of the biggest tunes this summer"-IDJ/"Single of the month" - TTR) and Sexy dancer have been gaining support from all the A league breaks DJs.
