Born in Rostock Carlo Rütz was fascinated by the sound of music at an early stage. He was often in clubs until the early hours of the morning and found his way to electronic music. In 2001 he bought his first turntables and mixer. In the attic of his parents he built a small studio and recorded his first set with a tape recorder.

He devoted himself to the minimalist bar, which is still reflected in his subbasspressenden tracks. He started off with small performances and 2 years later performed as DJ-synonym “Jason”Wawn” in Rostock, Neubrandenburg clubs and open airs in Pütnitz. His first major highlight in his career was the Open Air “Pütnitz wakes up” in line up with known International and National artists such is Troy Pierce, Dapayk, Heartthrob and Tommy Gun. 5 years ago, Carlo started producing his own tracks, inspired by artists such as Heinrichs & Hirtenfellner, Daniel Steinberg and Magda. Since 2010 “Jason Wawn” has been perfoming under his real name Carlo Ruetz.
Driven by his ambition to produce successful tracks he already had his first debut success with” I`m Fucking Famous”.
With the “Handmade ep” supported by Alfred Heinrichs he released the first time on his homebase-label „Supdub“. More releases followed till march 2013 where Carlo Ruetz has released his first album, called „Breakthrough“ on „Supdub Digitales“. The name was also its attention: Though within 24hrs after release the album crashed into the minimal beatportcharts and asserted itself on the pole-position for more than three weeks. Amongst other great productions this was the reason for an invitation for playing at Richie Hawtins ENTER. parties in Rummelsburg/Berlin and the legendary Space-Club in Ibiza last summer. Since this happenings Carlo Ruetz already played at several Minus-Showcases. Richie Hawtin himself counts Carlo Ruetz to the new minus-generation. His first EP for Minus will be released in the end of july. With the positive feedbacks he is building on his success, and we sure will be hearing more from him.
