Ralf Schmidt aka AERA was born in 1984 near harbor city Kiel in Germany. Inspired by his early love for all kinds of electronic sounds, he got his first synthesizer when he was about 12 years old. From that point on the machines ruled his life. He started to dive headfirst into all sorts of music, from early Jungle to Hip Hop to House and Techno, never being satisfied with serving only one particular style, always searching for something fresh and exciting. Fast forward to 2010, he launches his own Label ALEPH MUSIC to release his own music exclusively. The label is a true DIY adventure, as he is taking care of everything himself: the music, the artwork, the press, the accounting and every little thing in between. Only his girlfriend is allowed to help with the A&Ring - as sometimes it can be quite difficult to decide what to release among the mounts of music he creates. Aera has developed a unique and distinctive style, both colourful and playful, with a lot of room for improvisation and experiments, while still having the dancefloor focussed. As most reviewers notice, the whole UK / Hardcore continuum is a big part of his sound, though inspiration comes from all over the place, as his eclectic dj-mixes show. The first two releases were received enthusiastically by the press and music lovers worldwide: "Forcefully vital tracks in a world filled with so much impotent house music, pretty much guaranteed to demolish a set for any DJ brave and adventurous enough to play them." Resident Advisor "We’ve probably played this record more than anything else in the FACT office of late." FACT Magazine "For me, this is definitely one of the Labels of the year out of Berlin." De:Bug Aleph03 is just about to hit the shelves - recieving praise all over the board already. When he is not busy doing remixes for labels such as Buzzin' Fly, Future Classic or Fauxpas, he is collaborating with guys like Till Von Sein, Frank Martiniq and Marc Schneider, on labels as diverse as Curle Records, Jolly Jams (DJ Kaos) or Suol. With his good friend Henry Behring he is producing as Goldwill, having released numberous House records on Liebe*Detail, Wandering // Mojuba, Musik Gewinnt Freunde and Dessous, for example. Aera loves to play out live and as most of his compositions are the result of long and extensive jams, he surely knows how to push the right buttons at the right time. In 2011, he moved to Ayacucho // Peru, where he is looking forward to bringing the Aleph sound to South America. Last but not least, he is working on his album right now, which will see the light of day in 2012.
