Konik polny means grasshopper in Polish, and it’s a very appropriate name for the nature of kp’s music. If you ask him what it means, he looks at you and smiles, and starts telling you about Dutch teknival back in the year 2000, of repeated police controls.. of trucks and vans... of people and friends, travelling the Dutch highways looking for a place to make a party and meeting on their road.....
He moved to the German capital in 2000 where the underground electronic scene was flourishing and Berlin became his house and city. Since then he’s been playing in numerous clubs pulsating with life: The Köpi(historical squat), the Love parade, Suppamolli, Maria am Ostbahnhof  and the Fishladen, to mention a few. These are all places of cult status in the techno music scene.
It is here that its sonorities purchase consistence, shot through the speakers like bullets piercing through the dancing bodies, an artistic expression of music in continuous evolution. It is music which is visceral, vibrating, a fusion of underground techno: dark and repetitive with soft sonorities neighbouring culture drum and bass, and break-beat.
Konik Polny’s ideal place for expression are electronic music festival, in the last four years he has participated as spectator and musician in almost all the festivals in Europe. His particular favourite is the CEKTEK in the Czech republic where one is transported into a fantastic fascinating atmosphere. The live sets seem to transmit states of animo, transforming from acid music lines, to dark and even playful sonority. In the last years he has been playing at the Cinema of Barcelona, the Wagon Club, Wroclaw in Poland, the nation that has entertained him on so many occasions. 2005 was an important year for Konik, together with his Polish friend Dj Pala, he founded “Joint Operation Records”, short JopRec, a label born with the idea to create an international network for artists from the world of commercial music.
