In June 2011 DJ Phono will release his first Album on Hamburg’s record label Diynamic. “Welcome To Wherever You’re Not” is a work of heart, of emotions of awakened, flourishing, and unrequited feelings. It’s something of a kind that could neither be accomplished within a nights work nor even in a cycle of nights, but only in good time. DJ Phono and his producer Jimi Siebels (A DIFFERENT JIMI / EGOEXPRESS / IT’S RECORDS) allowed themselves to take this time, two years, to be precise. “I didn’t work consistently on this album, but waited for those moments, that enabled me to work out of a certain emotion.
