during the years 1994 to 1997 a group called virta from the arctic plains of finland established a solid cult status.

two young friends, using amiga computers and the legendary protracker composition software along with a couple of vintage synthesizers, created monotonic, distorted beats that quickly spread around and even found their way into germany and australia.

it was only later that they found out their material had inspired many others.

now virta is back with a vengeance. michael diekmann, the original founder of virta, alongside new member perttu lindroos are the men responsible for these ass-kicking beats. supported by a crackhead called countryside bob (real name not known) and his microphone talents, this group has set up an incredibly solid set of irresistible pounding techno. pure mayhem and 100%-proof floorfilling beats that will make your body groove.
