Markku is the founder of electronic music boutique label Whose Haus and currently based in Taichung, Taiwan. In the club and festival circuit, he has been DJing for nearly two decades and has traveled from North America, to Europe, and most recently into Asia to play the top clubs and electronic music festivals. Currently, 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. In the local scene, Markku Arimo is a regular guest DJ at club 18TC as well as a multitude of other notable and eclectic underground dance music events throughout the great nation of Taiwan most notably Eden Hill Festival.
On the production side, Markku is the studio owner of ‘Mi Casa Taichung Studio’ in Xitun District and he has recorded for the mighty underground label Tulipa Recordings under his ‘PiP SquEEk’ moniker having worked with a wide range of artists on a variety of collaborations outside of the traditional house and techno scenes. Most notably, however, while still living in Toronto, Markku Arimo founded the boutique record label Whose Haus in 2007 and the choon train is still rolling out the hits over a decade later representing more than 50 artists worldwide and contributing over 60 releases to date for the scene he loves so much. Making dance music is a labor of love and Markku is inspired by music.
During the formative years, doors began to open for Markku after receiving 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 as his alter ego Mark Sense, he was a regular booking at the festival charged with keeping the Dance Factory stage dance floor movin’ and groovin’ both rain and/or shine during summer solstice.
