Swedish funk band member Jean-Louis "Tjångan" Huhta.

Jean-Louis Patrik Huhta (born 30 April 1965 in Gothenburg, Sweden) is a Swedish musician, drummer, producer and DJ.[1]

Huhta has a history in various Swedish bands going back through the mid 80s, ranging from punk and art-music to grindcore and funk.

Huhta started his musical career in the early eighties as a member of Freddie Wadling's post-punk band Cortex.[2] He later joined the Swedish hardcore band Anti Cimex, in which Jean-Louis played percussion between 1984 and 1987. Since then he has participated in various bands and more or less experimental (art-)projects. Together with Texas Instruments he created rhythm-based, industrial noise and as a member of the art collective Lucky People Center [2] he found his way to the contemporary dance music. He has also tried his hand at funk, hip hop and go-go music with The Stonefunkers.[3][4] With The Skull Defekts (with Daniel Fagerström, Joachim Nordwall, Henrik Rylander and Daniel Higgs) he toured the United States in 2009.[5]

Personal life[edit]

Huhta's father hails from Trinidad and has a large blues and soul music collection. His mother was from Tervola, Finland.[14][15][16] He moved to Stockholm from his Native Gothenburg in the 1990s and is living and working in Copenhagen, since 2018.[17] In his teens, Huhta became a fan of SPK, Einstürzende Neubauten and other electronica pioneers. He says this musical mixture can be heard in his music and drumming style.[2]

His younger brother is rapper ADL.[18]
