‘Io - is name of our solar systems fourth largest moon which orbits Jupiter. In ancient Greek religion, Io, was known as one of the lovers of Zeus, king of the gods of Mt. Olympus. Moon, full of volcanic plumes and seriously hostile habitat with crazy molten lava geysires where life, atleast as we know it, is not going to happen. Not really a place for human beings. Dont know what the -na is about tbh..
Finnish 27 yo, Dj/Newbie producer, Mikko Juustonen alias iONA/Trickster, mainly playing psychedelic trance and drum and bass. iONA alias stays on dnb/neurofunk/jungle music since Trickster go to the deepend, playing progressive, slighlty dark and creepy soundscapes from subgenres such as darkprog/psygressive/zenonesque/psybreaks/psytech. Twilight, groovy forest and occasionally techno and minimal can also be heard from this rare, Fuck’d up being’s selection.
Jungle and liquid dnb were first branches of electronic music that truly got him hooked as a teenager. Once he got in to the underground psychedelic music scene about seven, eight years ago, there was no looking back. Down in the rabbits hole, iONA started DJ’ing mixing mostly techno and house on friend’s 2-channel controller and sometimes got chance to try Technichs and see how it’s done with vinyls. As a big fan of dnb and jungle music, it was obviously going to be the main genre soonish after he invested some time and practiced now on his own setup. Getting more deeper in to the scene, iONA ended up around like-minded people and networks, mentors and friends, who teached about DJ'ing and music in general. Uplifting impact on his musical knowledge and understanding gave his Dj -career a nice bump forward!
Intentions to create and let you hear soundscapes and selection of music that you could describe with words such as deep, groovy, weird and intellect. No matter if it is drum and bass or psytrance, or maybe techno who knows, you can expect oddly groovy, psychedelic atmosphere, embodied with chunky basslines and funky vibes!
Last two years have been more active regarding live Dj-sets and iONA has played just about anything from UG gigs in addition to live streams on net radios such as Soar.FM and Kaaosradio, as well as official events and gatherings. He is also an active member of fresh party organising group, Hybrid Jkl -collective and b2b project, Neurolink.
