Elliott Perkins (aka Phonem) hails from Southwest England, but now resides in Leipzig, Germany. Inspired by his studies in linguistics at university, Perkins named Phonem after "phoneme," the smallest unit of speech. (Perkins is known to use incredibly short vocal samples in his works.) He's released two full-lengths on Morr Music following his debut on Jetlag Recordings. Although Phonem draws influence from Spacemen 3 and Main, it would be impossible to write about him without a tip of the hat to Autechre, whose Tri Repetae Phonem cites as the album which initially drew him to electronic music."

"Data Control," which features shifting and skittery beats over soothing synths, is one of Phonem's contributions to BiP-HOp Generation v.1, a collection featuring exclusive tracks from Marumari, Scheider TM, Massimo, Goem, and Ultra Milkmaids.
