History starts from the 1992 with Amiga 500, 8-bit sampler and MIDI-keyboard. There was some success in 4-track MOD competitions but goal was to make tracks for Amiga multimedia-productions with his coder-friend.

During 1991 - 1996 Panu did some DJ gigs and played more aggressive and also faster stuff when his friend played more euro-stuff. In those times he started to buy keyboards, synths and samplers and started to learn how to program them.

End of the 90's studio was moved from Amiga to PC and sound was more professional. There was some analog synths (Roland Juno-106, Jupiter-6, Waldorf Pulse) and many VA's.

Mp3.com was successful and after it was closed Panu uploaded tracks to download.com. He started to get mails mostly from USA since D'n'B was going to be popular in the beginning of the millenium. Panu was making atmospheric d'n'b and managed top10 in the d'n'b charts and top3 in the atmorpheric d'n'b charts. Those times top name were Pendulum and Roni Size to name few.

Nowadays tracks are used in many video-productions but now there is different projects for different ambitions. DeadZone, the main project, has been waiting for new inspiration. Since success of dnb-times music has developed to more experimental with guitar and bass. During making album "Silently" Panu finally managed to make few ambien-tracks and played in his long time (since 90's) favourite radio-program "Space Junk" (Avaruusromua). Later he finally managed to make more ambient-type music with his analog-synths with help of software. Many of them played in "Space Junk".
