In 1994, they began releasing on Sähkö Recordings, the experimental techno label of their friend Tommi Grönlund. On their first tour outside of Finland, while in London, they got a record deal with Blast First (the Mute sub-label). In 1995, their first release on Blast First was "Vakio" which received international recognition. In 1996, Sami Salo left Pan Sonic and the project continued as a duo until disbanding in 2009. The pair briefly reformed in 2015 to create the soundtrack for the documentary film Atomin Paluu ("Return of the Atom").
