Kobosil‘s first vinyl release, his remix for Barker & Baumecker‘s "Silo", released on Ostgut Ton at the beginning of 2013, impressed with it‘s punishing drive, subtle, hypnotic synth sounds, escalating hi-hats and crystal clear production and spawned all kinds of speculation who might be behind the previously unknown Kobosil name. Then his debut 12“ emerged just a few months after the "Silo" remix. With influences ranging from stark, raw machine techno, dark, purist, pumping acid, noise and distortion, the 4 bold tracks on this EP made a whole range of djs pick and play different titles from the 12“ and stand out productions "Emil" and "Think & Think" made their mark on techno dance floors way beyond Berlin. Another 4-track 12" on Ostgut Ton's sister label Unterton soon followed and the track "Osmium" from this EP was licensed for the FABRICLIVE 73 CD mixed by Panagea.
Simultaneously Kobosil introduced his dj sets as clubs started booking him on the strength of his first two releases alone and reports of fresh, no bars techno, informed by a whole range of electronic music styles, skilled mixing and well constructed sets followed. Kobosil had arrived and it wasn't long before he made his debut on the Berghain Klubnacht floor. Hailing from Neukölln, Berlin, the only 22 year old Kobosil combines his talent with trained instruction, just about to finish a BA in audio production, which he studies since 2010, this young producer knows his stuff. An avid vinyl collector, he has an almost nostalgic, passionate approach to music, combined with a truly futuristic outlook on where techno is heading. Deeply rooted in classic origins but reinvigorated and pushing sound frontiers and limits.
Next for Kobosil is an EP for Marcel Dettmann's MDR Label to be released early next year, a live set, which he intends to premier before the end of this year and a second release on his own -no label- which will undoubtedly further his trademark sound and will be done in the own particular way of this charming but headstrong dj/producer.
