The german producer & DJ Carlo Ruetz, has been a part of the minimal techno scene since a decade but it wasn’t till 2013 (when his debut album ‘Breakthrough’ on Subdub went straight to top of the Beatport charts) that he got international attention. Since then he has released acclaimed EP’s on M_nus, Moonplay, Deeperfect, KD Music and now he’s back with his RUKUS-debut ‘Dimensions’ which is out since May 4th, 2018 (order here). Find out more about him in our LSD FAZE TIME feature and listen to his new EP below!


My name is Carlo Ruetz. I was born in 1985 and grew up in a small village near Rostock called Ribnitz-Damgarten. When I was 14, I started listening electronic music because my brother. It was then when I realised that I loved electronic music and decided to make my own stuff and DJ sets. Since then I tried a lot of things.

One of my best gigs I played was the opening on the Terrace floor at Space Ibiza for Richies ENTER. party. It was so much fun because from the beginning it was packed and a huge atmosphere.
One of the best gigs I have been to was the Awakenings Festival. I loved the areas with all the well named DJs from all over the world.


Now I live in Ribnitz-Damgarten with my wife. In my house you can find calmness, my PS4 :) and my refrigerator is usually full with non-vegan food. I enjoy every day when I am not traveling or in the studio and listing to music (no Techno) a lot. I can spend hours in the Studio or playing PS4. I am not addicted but it distracts me sometimes. One of my favorite places to visit is Norway, because I love fishing as well and it is so quiet.

On weekdays I go to the studio. and on weekends I usually play music or relax with my wife.
My favorite song at the moment is Liss C. – Modulation (Truncate Remix). A film I watched lately and really liked was Red Planet from 2000. The last series I watched and loved was The Orville.
I am very inspired by the electronic music scene. My dream is to be a well known artist. My worst nightmare is to loose somebody.
I love fishing, producing, DJing and hate unfriendly people.
I am addicted to Minimal-Techno and Techno music, I just cannot stop eating chips :)
I get totally fucked up, when I have to wake up earlier then a bird. The next day I need to drink a good coffee.


Tomorrow I‘m going to be productive in the studio. Next month I will release my new EP on Rukus. Next year I will be just as successful as this one. In 10 years I hope that I am just as healthy as today.


If I wasn’t a DJ or Producer, I would be an astronaut. If I was a car, I would be a Chevrolet Caprice. If I was an animal, I would be a bird. If I was a drug I would be LSD. If I was an invention, I would be a legendary synthesizer. If I was an object, I would be a painting.
If I could play with anyone it would be a B2b with Richie Hawtin. I would like to collaborate with Maceo Plex. If I had only one wish, it would be to stay healthy until the end of my life.
I would never stop music, because it’s a very important part of my life.


My word of advice to the reader would be to do what you love most without compromise.
