Obscure 016 – Ø [Phase]
Obscure invites a massive Techno personality from England for their 16th installment. The full lineup will be announced on Friday, January 26th.
Since the late 1990’s Ø [Phase] has been part of the UK Techno scene. The London based producer whose style ranges from gritty Minimal Techno to Detroit influenced material is best known by his work on Token Records. Originally a mastering engineer, he began producing as a sideline, releasing his debut “Module Overload” on Steve Bicknell’s Lost/Cosmic records in 2000. This was followed by a string of productions for London’s Surface/Inceptive Records and Ben Sims’ Ingoma imprint, all of which saw consistent support throughout the techno community.
He started working with Token in 2007, and his music progressively earned more and more worldwide recognition – significantly on 2012′s much acclaimed “Binary Opposition” single and subsequently on his 2013 debut LP ‘Frames of Reference’. Regular appearances at the world renowned Berghain in Berlin, REX (Paris), FUSE club (Brussels) and Lux (Lisbon) (amongst others) along with remixes for the likes of Planetary Assault Systems, Robert Hood and Marcel Dettmann confirmed Ø [Phase]’s music beyond doubt as an essential voice within the genre.
Today his schedule is busier than ever. After producing his 2nd album ‘Alone In Time?’ in 2015, he continues to perform all over the world with many forthcoming dates in Europe, Asia, Australia and the Americas during 2016.
