K-X-P is a drums, bass and synth trio from Helsinki, Finland, born out of the fire and ashes of the seminal Op:l Bastards and The Lefthanded, both of which were led by Timo Kaukolampi. The band is comprised of Timo Kaukolampi (electronics, vocals), Tuomo Puranen (bass and keyboards) and rotating drummers Anssi Nykänen and Tomi Leppanen. The band mixes electronics, krautrock, and even rockabilly into a hypnotic and minimal motorik groove.The musical background of K-X-P's members varies wildly, ranging from the disco-idiotism-turned-into-spiritual-hide-and-seek of Op:l Bastards, to the fusion and free jazz explorations of Pekka Pohjola, (of which Anssi Nykanen was a member and so was Jimi Tenor) to the East European soulscapes of Tomi Leppanen's former band, Aavikko.

K-X-P initially began to form in 2006 when Timo gave Smalltown Supersound Records some demos of a new project he was working on. Smalltown Supersound's Joakim Haugland was completely blown away and in an effort to convince the not-yet-formed band to become an official unit, he booked them a gig in Oslo in 2007. The self-titled album was finally delivered to Smalltown Supersound in December of 2009 and released.

Glasgow's Optimo has also been a strong supporter of the band from the beginning. Before K-X-P finished recording the new album, Optimo remixed their "18 Hours of Love" (the remix has already been featured on Mylo's compilation for Mixmag). They were also invited to be one of the final performers to play at the legendary Sunday club in Glasgow's Subclub, in late April 2010.
