DT700 – HOBBS (UK)
Matt Hobin is Manchester-based DJ/Producer HOBBS (UK).
After a music career spanning several years, Matt has played a number of venues in the UK and Europe (including an event in Ibiza with the maestro that is Doorly and several appearances at ADE). His crowd-pleasing performances of rolling tech-house, expertly woven with melodic, tribal elements create a truly unique sound.
Since making the natural transition from being a DJ to the studio Matt has seen some considerable success and support. His work released on labels such as Reptile Dysfunction, Whartone Records, Shanghaied, Purple Music, Freakin’ 909 and In the Loop. These quickly led to the continued support of the likes of Roger Sanchez, D Ramirez, Billy Kenny, Vanilla Ace, Sonny Wharton and many more…Hobbs (UK) is also no stranger to DJ and download charts with two ‘Traxsource top 10’s’.
An artist that is not afraid to push boundaries in and out of the studio that leads to captivating grooves, keeping people on the Underground scene moving via more heartfelt productions and immersive live performances. A true breath of fresh air.
Today, he takes on our 700th Podcast! Where has the time gone? It seems like only yesterday we were prepping our inaugural podcast from Ed Banger founder Busy P for your listening delights and here we are today at edition number 700.
