Aarktica is a way to “execute the soundtrack of life in mono… one of audio distortions, aural hallucinations and reliance on painkillers.” – Jon DeRosa

Aarktica, a solo project of New Jersey born guitarist Jon DeRosa was born out of a very unfortunate event – in the late 90s DeRosa suffered a permanent hearing loss in one of his ears and Aarktica became his way to demonstrate the peculiarity/pain of living in a mono mode. Much of Aarktica’s work came out on California-based label Darla Records, as well labels like Silber (US), Ochre (UK) and Moonbunny (Germany).
