For the last 6 years, Bobina (aka Moscow-based DJ, producer & label impresario Dmitry Almazov) has formed the tip of Russia’s electronic dance spear. His globe-circumnavigating DJ adventures have taken him around the planet numerous times, playing tent-pole events like Gatecrasher Summer Soundsystem, Trance Energy, and the WMC. Through his label, World Club Music, Bobina has been the single greatest catalysing factor in the Federation-side careers of Armin, Tiësto & Above & Beyond, releasing their artist albums throughout her caucuses. On the production front he has released numerous singles, 3 critically acclaimed artist albums and along the way prompted Ferry Corsten to say that Bobina is: “one of the most talented music producers ever to come out of Russia”. Bobina is without question Russia’s first dance SuperTsar!
Spinning an evocative, floor-combusting combination of vocal & instrumental trance, he’s brought the Bobina sound to tent-pole events like The Winter Music Conference (2006), Trance Energy (2007) and Gatecrasher Summer Sound System (2008). He was one of only a few deck-practitioners to be hand-picked by Tiësto to support him on his ‘In Concert’ tour. In 2008 at the RDMA’s Bobina was recognized as The Audience’s Best DJ. In October of 2009 he took over Moscow’s legendary Gaudi Club for his first spotlight DJ concert. Bobina Extended saw him thrill a home city audience of over 3000 with a 4 hr set performance, making him the first DJ from the country to do so. Notably Bobina was also the first Russian DJ to appear in the DJ Mag Top 100 chart. In 2008 he debuted at no.28, only to shoot up inside the top 20 the following year (to the no.16 spot).
