Nebula Meltdown has been involved with music nearly all his life. As a child, he listened to a lot of classical music and played also the piano for several years. He got interested about electronic music when he was 12 years old, first listening to the Prodigy and the likes of it, until he found out about goa- and psytrance in early 2000 after which there was no turning back. Nebula started to spin the decks in 2002 and had his first psyparty gig in early 2003 at a finnish morning party. After that he has arranged parties, been playing both live- and dj-gigs at a steady flow mostly in Finland but a few times abroad as well. He has a large selection of oldschool goa-trance which is his biggest love midst the myriads of styles of electronic music and an ever-growing selection of delicate UK psytrance. He will also play ambient/chill-out sets if needed and darkpsy sets occasionally if in the mood for it. He has been composing many different styles of psychedelic trance, from morning goa to nightpsy and UK-style full-on, ambient, chill-out and some hybrid tracks blending nightpsy madness and goa in the same soup, and even something between full-on and suomisaundi, too. So, his live-sets can be a real rainbow of psychedelia. With utter devotion to music in his life, he is constantly working and fine-tuning his music with careful precision.
In 2009 he became a label-dj in Finland for a Belgian Goa-Trance label Suntrip Records which has a respectable list of talented psychedelic artists.
2010 was the time for his debut release on a CD compilation from Suntrip Records, Temple of Chaos (SUNCD19) which features Nebula Meltdown's track "Encrypted Illusion", an 11:32-long sunrise goatrack which got quite good feedback
