Philipp Otterbach is a man who likes to collect, collate and construct sound, refracting experiences into deep pulsing resonances. One of the earliest residents of Düsseldorf's infamous Salon des Amateurs way back in 2004, Philipp ran the Substance parties with Vladimir Ivkovic for many years. His organic, idiosyncratic sound was subsequently found pressed to black plastic on Essen’s Grokenberger Records and, a little later, The Hague’s Tour Messier label with his latest release finding the light on DT fave Knekelhuis. These days Philipp might be found behind the decks of a party in Berlin, such as the Griessmuehle or ://about blank and will be joining the DT crew at DT Camp this August. We stole some time with Philipp to talk about his work, his sound and his upcoming projects and releases.
