Behind the artist name Luomuhappo is Jere Häkkinen (b. 1982), one of the original founders of Freakdance ecords. He started his musical creations in the mid-90's using a tracker software and the legendary Roland MC-505 groovebox. He released his first self-made CDR demo, titled "Juotsen Kutsu" in 2001 under the artist name 'Espoon happo ja luomu'. Mainly created with the MC-505, Juotsen Kutsu had songs ranging from the combination of psy-trance, breakbeat and electro into ambient downtempo. Distributed also on the Internet, the cross-genre promo release caught the attention of many. Häkkinen then changed his artist name into Luomuhappo, which roughly translated means 'organic acid' in Finnish. In 2002 he released another promotional CDR, the tracker-made "Eurogorilla 2002 Transmutation Kit". On this second CDR release were also included two of Luomuhappo's remixes of Finnish underground psy-trance artists, Huopatossu Mononen and Omituisten Otusten Kerho (O.O.K.). Luomuhappo's Eurogorilla 2002 Transmutation Kit was also the first release under Freakdance Records label name and the album has later become somewhat a cult classic and a true collector's item due to the ridiculously small print of about 50 copies. The unique sounds that formed the musical dentity of Luomuhappo on Eurogorilla 2002 Transmutation Kit gained Häkkinen a steadily growing fan base of weird music-loving freaks all around the world, thanks to the age of Internet and MP3's. Some might describe Luomuhappo's psy-trance/breakbeat/jungle tracks as "The Prodigy vs. Finnish Schizo-Disco on a nearly lethal dose of mushrooms" whereas his mellow downtempo tracks are equally as blissful in their timelessness and serenity.

Continuing where he left off in 2002 with his previous release, Luomuhappo has surely used his Eurogorilla 2002 Transmutation Kit to metamorphose into the brand new Pog-o-matic Pogómen 3000000 (patent pending). His track and album names might be getting constantly weirder, but it has to be admitted that the unique sound of Luomuhappo has now truly evolved to the next level of terrestial consciousness. The aural range of this album varies from the wild, over 150BPM-paced breakbeat psy-jungle-trance-full power-psychedelia to synthesizzling dub and shamanistic ambient themes at the end of the album. Briefly said with no extra pompousness included: Pog-o-matic Pogómen 3000000 is an electronic round-trip through all the different moods of a human existence. It is the culmination point where the echoes of our ancient ancestors' songs blend perfectly with the present - and the far future as well.

This album was originally released on Finland's Freakdance Records as a limited edition in late 2004, and is now made available worldwide by Fearie Dragon Records as a digipak plus artwork booklet insert.

'Most civilized people are out of touch with reality because they confuse the world as it is, with the world as they think about it, talk about it and describe it.'
