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” EP and subsequently on his 2013 debut LP “Frames of Reference“.
His tracks have become constants in the DJ sets and Podcasts of Marcel Dettmann, James Ruskin, Robert Hood, Ben Klock, Rødhåd, Dave Clarke and many more. So did his remixes for Luke Slater, Robert Hood, Jeroen Search, Scuba, Daniel Avery and Woo York to name a few. After releasing his 2nd album “Alone In Time?“ in 2015 he consolidated his position as one of the most important representatives and developers of the current London Techno sound.Regular appearances at renowned venues like Berghain in Berlin, Concrete (Paris), Fuse Club (Brussels), D-Edge (São Paulo), Lux (Lisbon), Melkweg (Amsterdam), Fabric (London), Contact (Tokyo) and The Block (Tel Aviv) confirmed Ø [Phase] as a relevant voice within the genre.Today his schedule is busier than ever. Over the last years he played an average of 70 gigs per year. He’s performing all over the world in mid-size to big clubs and at festivals with up to 10.000 visitors. His tour schedule has taken him to places in Europe, Asia, Australia, South America and Canada.
Daniel Miller is the founder of Mute, launched in 1978 with his own 7” single – ‘Warm Leatherette’ under the name The Normal.
Since then, Mute has grown from Miller’s one-man operation into a global group of companies and today, as ever, Miller remains heavily focussed on Mute’s creative output.
Although he DJed many years ago, Daniel Miller’s recent DJing was inspired by an invitation from Karl O’Connor aka Regis who invited him to perform at a Sandwell District event at Berlin’s Berghain. There he caught the bug to play again and since has been playing regular techno sets worldwide including Sonar, ENTER at Space in Ibiza, ADE in Amsterdam, IMS at Ibiza, Electron festival, LEAF festival in London as well as at Culture Box in Copenhagen, Bootleg in Tel Aviv and, of course, a legendary performance at M-Nus’ Christmas Boiler Room in Berlin.
Forthcoming appearances include sets at ENTER. in Ibiza , Nuit Sonores in Lyon and Sonar in Barcelona.
