Heiki (Hey-Key) is a veteran of the Toronto electronic music scene. Since 1987, Heiki Sillaste has released an impressive catalogue of well over 45 synthesizer-based records and made over 150 compilation appearances.

Heiki began his musical career fronting the internationally acclaimed industrial-tekno group DIGITAL POODLE in the late 80’s and early 90’s while running the now famous Shadow Canada label.

In 1995, he went on to co-found nice+smooth ultramedia, an independent electronic music label that has produced great records by fellow musicians such as Roy Davis Jr., Jordan Fields, Teknostep, as well as Heiki’s own groups KINDER ATOM, LAZER CAPS and LES FONTAINES.

Heiki’s collaborative and remix work has been wide reaching, including work with the likes of dreamSTATE, Teknostep, Visionary, seminal ambient composers Rapoon and Zoviet France, Dead Voices on Air, as well reggae superstars Michael Rose and Musical Sniper.

Heiki currently works as a graphic designer and he owns and operates the Toronto based paper+sound record label.
