Experimental electronic music producer Mika Vainio has died aged 53, it has been confirmed by family and friends. No further details are yet known.

Hailing originally from Finland, Vainio formed Pan Sonic (originally known as Panasonic) in 1993, alongside Ilpo Väisänen and Sami Salo. Salo left the project in 1996. From 1994, they released music with the Sähkö label, which Vainio founded in 1993 alongside Tommi Grönlund. Vainio and Väisänen continued to work together as Pan Sonic until the present day, having released a film soundtrack last year.

Vainio also produced a vast collection of solo material under his own name as well as other guises, including most famously Ø and Philus. His work explored various aspects of techno, industrial music, noise and other experimental corners of electronic music. Through his career, he collaborated with the likes of Charlemagne Palestine, Fennesz, Merbow, Franck Vigroux and many more.

You've brought joy to so many people, doing what you love. And hopefully made some decent coin in the process.  You win!

Dylan guitarist Bruce Langhorne
wow...quite a storied history including...
He and Odetta performed Aug. 28, 1963, at the March on Washington, just before the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his ?I Have a Dream? speech.

I do love his exit
Mr. Langhorne moved to Hawaii in 1980 to farm macadamia nuts.

definitely one of MANY people in the Village folk scene that Dylan collaborated with and some might say cannily utilized in the early stages of his career.... some might argue that he got the better of his collaborations, interactions and personal relationships with so many of these people be it Langhorne, Carolyn Hester, Eric Von Schmitt, Dave Van Ronk and most notably of course Joan Baez... We will never know the true story although I suspect John Hammond (son not father) could give us the most honest account about what happened and how a nobody from Minnesota could conquer the world in a period of just a couple of years going from performing initially crummy versions of the folk canon to creating an entirely new folk canon then quickly leaving it in the dust- some would say in an almost unseemly manner- and moving on to creating something entirely new in that thin wild mercury sound... Was Bob talented and did he develop his talent mightily and rapidly.. yes, but a lot more than just having "it' had to fall into place to create "Bob Dylan".. a confluence of a large list of developments, factors, history etc etc...


In fact I find it notable how much of Bob Dylan's early years seems to run through John Hammond be it from getting a contract with Columbia- the number one label at the time- as a nothing 19 year old from legendary Columbia A&R man John Hammond Sr... to getting involved with the Band - initially John Hammond's band... The fact Hammond (son) and Dylan were roommates at least for a little while in Bob's early NYC days must have something to do with it all..It must be said that John Hammond (son) was by all accounts not very close to his father as his parents had divorced or separated..still...


funnily enough I was walking around Bleeker St in the Village exactly this time last night thinking about Bob....

I always figured Bruce Langhorne with that name was some Irish or English bloke.. ha ha...boy was I  wrong!  ;D
