Phon.o

The boy with the dot in his name and the dubby background, started to play records with his buddy Apparat in the early 90s far in the darkest reaches of the ruff'n'tuff Harz mountains, in former East Germany. This little country bumpkin practiced dilingently every night by candlelight at his aunt's farm. 1994, Phon.o cites the hay in the barn, the dirt in the fields and the sheep form calling him from beyond the hills as strong early influences of his deep and dirty style. In these times he got his first turntables and used every free hour to practise in his hidden secret cottage.1997, seeking new and bright horizons, our boy moves to beautiful Berlin and is given the keys to his first apartment: a dingy shoebox which even the Russians had left unoccupied during their stint in Berlin.

Ah great decade of DJing followed with Phon.o getting deeper and deeper into the scene. With the beginning of the new decade Phon.o got back on his track and start working on new songs and put his hands on remixes for Modeselektor, Boys Noize, Schlachthofbronx, Juli, Leg-No&Emma and Robot Koch. He also became a resident DJ for Berlins best Club - the WMF. In 2011 Phon.o comes up with new releases on Modeselektor's label 50weapons / Monkeytown. In the dark cold winter of 2011/12 Phon.o locked down himself in the studio to finish his new album Black Boulder which got released on 50weapons in summer of 2012 followed by a bunch of strong EPs within the next years. In 2015 Phon.o releases his first EP on Ellen Alliens label Bpitch Control. So... the shit goes on…the downward spiral continues...
