British producer Ott got his start working as an engineer in several studios around North London. Working obsessively, 18 hours a day, seven days a week for almost 10 years, he began developing the skills that would eventually allow him to work with artists who inspired his foray into music in the first place – Brian Eno, The Orb, Youth, African Head Charge, Steve Hillage, and On-U-Sound.


After spending the '90s freelancing around London as a studio engineer and producer, Ott celebrated the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st by giving it all up and moving to a remote cottage in southwestern England to be alone with his cats and his studio. A period of intense creativity followed, during which he created a great many tracks and then stashed them away on tapes, hidden from the light of day. In the meantime, Ott hatched a plan to remix half a dozen or so classic Hallucinogen trance tracks and release them as dub mixes – slower, fatter, and more chill friendly. In 2002 he realized this plan, releasing the album Hallucinogen in Dub via Twisted Records to universal acclaim.


Buoyed by the success of this initial release, the following year Ott gathered together and released his earlier sonic experiments as the album Blumenkraft (2003), which was also very well received and attracted a great many listeners around the world. The next few years passed in a whirl of gigs, remixes, and collaborative projects. During this time, Ott travelled the world, got married, welcomed his daughter Daisy to the world, and released his third and fourth albums, Skylon (2008) and Mir (2011). He recently settled on the Mediterranean coast of Spain with his wife and daughter and is currently working on numerous projects.
