Jean-Louis Patrik Huhta (born 30 April 1965) is a Swedish musician.[8] He has played in various bands going back through the mid 1980s, ranging from punk and art music to grindcore and funk.

Career[edit]

Huhta began his musical career in the early 1980s as a member of Freddie Wadling's post-punk band Cortex.[6] He later joined the hardcore band Anti Cimex, in which he played percussion between 1984 and 1987. Since then, he has participated in various groups and experimental art projects. Together with Texas Instruments, he created rhythm-based industrial noise and as a member of the art collective Lucky People Center,[9][6] he found his way to contemporary dance music. He has also dabbled in funk, hip hop, and go-go music with Stonefunkers.[10][11] With The Skull Defekts, he toured the United States in 2009.[12]

Personal life[edit]

Huhta's father hails from Trinidad,[citation needed] and his mother was from Tervola, Finland.[13][14][15] He moved to Stockholm from Gothenburg in the 1990s and lives in Copenhagen, Denmark since 2018.[16]
