Mikka Blank


Mikka Blank by Damian Richard

Growing up in a family of passionate music enthusiasts, Mikka Blank was exposed to a wide range of musical influences, including Hendrix, Kraftwerk, Doors, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, and Rare Earth. He experimented with various instruments before finally falling in love with a Roland SH1000 synthesizer, which he taught himself how to program. In addition to this, he also took drum lessons to enhance his musical skills. Using a makeshift crude mixing desk and his Roland SH1000, he created his first release at the age of 16: “The Terms Of Trade”, a cassette-only release that was limited to only 20 copies. The release consisted of three long pieces of layered patterns, reminiscent of the pioneers of industrial and minimal music. Unfortunately, these pieces have been lost over time.

At the same age, Mikka started organizing parties and DJing with friends, using two home-hi-fi setups due to the lack of proper equipment. In his mid-twenties, he began working in the music industry, where he learned about profound producing methods and eventually resumed his passion for producing music. His love for creating non-music eventually led to his second proper release, which was two abstract Christmas carols under the moniker of “Pointblank” on the short-lived Styrian label Mrs. Lee.

While producing sound design for websites, Mikka’s unused material became the foundation for another project, the “Kung Fu Divas,” together with fellow producer Supersultan, also known as Alec Bronski. This collaboration sparked Mikka’s ambition to produce original new material, which eventually led to the launch of his label blankTON recordings in 2013. Since then, a steady flow of material has emerged from this outlet, with a sound that encompasses IDM, Ambient Dub, Industrial, Krautrock, and more.

As of this writing, Mikka has released two albums under his name, and a third album is currently in the works.
