Aera

When you send out the first demo of your life, to only a handful of people, and the demo is immediately signed by one of them, and the name of the label is Innervisions, you know you must have done something right.

Aera alias Ralf Schmidt was born in northern Germany in the mid 80's, in a small, grey town just in between the Baltic and the North Sea. In the early 90's, when one of the first waves of house and techno swept the suburbs, young Aera was right there in the middle of it.

Fast forward some years, skip past the hours and hours spent in record shops and working for a record distribution, past countless days and days hidden away in the studio.. and arrive in 2010, when Aera started his own label Aleph Music.

The records immediately made big waves, leading to remixes for labels such as Future Classic, Buzzin' Fly or Circus Company and gigs all over Europe.

Apart from his releases, Aera has made a name for himself with his intense and versatile live sets. But he is also a knowledgeable and versatile DJ, with a deep record collection and skills to match.

There is also his side project Goldwill, a production and sometimes dj duo with releases on Wandering // Mojuba and their own imprint Socalled, among others.

Late 2011, Aera went on the road to travel through South America and write his first long player "Offseason Traveller", which was released on Aleph Music early 2013 and received rave reviews from all over the board.

He spent the winter of 2013 on La Gomera (Canary Islands), locked away in a studio overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, to work on new tracks.

This time, he didn't release them on Aleph Music, but instead decided to send out the first demo of his life, to only a handful of peopleā€¦
