Victoria 06:36
Cut This 06:19


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.
Igniting the EP with the driving, peak-time opener and title track Victoria, Joonas’ exquisite production credentials shine through for all to hear, as pounding kicks and industrial samples combine with techy leads to masterful effect. Switching things up for the middle order with the huge seven-minute cut, First Contact, pulsating acid basslines and arpeggiated synth lines provide the backbone of EP, before Joonas completes a remarkable final journey on Kuukou with the fitting, groove-filled closer, Cut This.
