DJ / Producer / Engineer, Markku Arimo is currently based in Taichung, Taiwan and is founder of Mi Casa Taichung Studio in Xitun District. In the club and festival circuit, Markku has been DJing for nearly two decades and has traveled from North America, to Europe, and most recently into Asia to play club gigs and music festivals. To see the world through a record box is a childhood dream become real one continent, one country, and one city at a time. Today, Markku Arimo is host of the monthly ‘R U Receiving’ radio show on Proton Radio airing every 3rd Tuesday of the month at 12 EST.
On the production side, Markku has recorded for Tulipa Recordings under his PiP SquEEk moniker and he has worked with a wide range of artists on a variety of collaborations outside of house and techno scenes as well. Most notably, however, while still living in Toronto, Canada Markku founded the boutique record label Whose Haus in 2007 and the choon train is still rolling out the hits over a decade later.
During the formative years, doors began to open when Markku received steady DJ bookings at one of the ten biggest music festivals in Europe annually held in Finland called ‘Rauma Meren Juhannus’ aka RMJ. Performing DJ sets under his alter ego Mark Sense, Markku was a regular booking among a collective of local talent and international guests. There a united nation of artists were charged with keeping the Dance Factory stage dance floor movin’ and groovin’ rain or shine during summer solstice. Furthermore, these bookings were indeed brilliant and much needed ‘teeth cutting’ exposure for any young artist with stars in their eyes and suddenly being invited to play warm up sets for notable DJs and veteran performers who were key figures in cultivating Finland’s DJ culture (during the pioneering days when DJ culture in Finland was just getting started).
