Part of the All Ears takeover
Phon.o is a veteran of the modern dance music scene. From his early beginnings spinning records with Apparat in their home of the Harz mountains in former East Germany, Carsten Aermes has come a long way.
His music has morphed over the years, changing with the times and taking a myriad of influences from Hip Hop, Dub, Baltimore, House, Dubstep and Techno. In 2000 Phon.o made the move to Berlin, and the years that followed saw him releasing on some highly interesting dance music labels including Cytrax, Shitkatapult, Boysnoize Records and Bpitch Control. In recent years his range and versatility has found him on Pinch‘s Tectonic and Modeselektor’s 50WEAPONS (on which he released his full length Black Boulder).
Most recently, Phon.o has found himself on another of Pinch’s labels – the vinyl-only Cold Recordings. Here, Aermes releases a three track record of rolling, thunderous basslines and cavernous space, morphing the realms of UK Bass and techno. Head here to listen to and buy Schutt Und Asche.
With two decades experience, Phon.o has no doubt taken his ears through a lot. Here, he supports our All Ears campaign with four downtempo cuts that help him relax in times of stress & tiredness.
