K-X-P are a Finnish electro-pop trio fronted by Timo Kaukolampi (of Op:l Bastards and the Lefthanded) and also featuring bassist/keyboardist Tuomo Puranen and alternating drummers Anssi Nykanen and Tomi Leppänen. Joakim Haugland, a record executive at Smalltown Supersound, knew of Kaukolampi from his production work with Norwegian pop sensation Annie, and encouraged him to form a band after hearing some of his Krautrock-inspired solo beats. K-X-P started rehearsing as a group soon thereafter, in 2006, and by the following year they were playing shows. In July of 2010, Smalltown Supersound released their self-titled debut, K-X-P.
