Headphonics / Tommi Sirkiä & Markku Louhio (FI)

Active producers of electronic dance music, Markku Louhio and Tommi Sirkiä take key elements of funk music to arrange them in a new and updated form.


HEADPHONICS is a project by Producers Markku Louhio & Tommi Sirkiä in their search for the perfect mix of electronic and conventional music, taking inspiration from old movie soundtracks, comics, classic 70’s funk, house, breaks, drum’n bass and hip hop. It also features noted Finnish Artists such as DJ Mel-3, an established funk and hip hop DJ in Finland who does some co-producing in the band; Vesa Pasanen, a musical virtuose with the guitar, Moroccan-born MC Hosni, who has worked with such famous Finnish groups as Giant Robot, Cool Sheiks, Fat Beat Sound System and Brothomstates. Headphonics also co-operates with the highly respected brass section Baabelin Torvet, which has performed with many of the biggest Artists in Finland. Actress and Singer Katja Sirkiä’s vocal performance adds a female touch to Headphonics.

> Their debut album Evolution of Funk Opus 1&2 was released in March 2008 by Exogenic Breaks.
