TOBO TOBO


Read the TOBO TOBO Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


My name is TOBO TOBO, I've been messing around with music since early high school. I've released tracks with many producers and singers such as Madi, oceans, and JAYDOT, and I also started Orbitual Recordings a few years ago. I can never pick one genre to produce, so I explore different genres from experimental to tropical house. I would never consider myself as an artist because that's disrespect to the true artists out there.


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


I first started listening to mainstream EDM in the early 2010's, which were mainly progressive house and dubstep artists. That got me into soundcloud and pushed me further deeper into less known music and genres. One of my first huge obsessions was Soulection, and a lot of their hip hop + Electronic grooves stuck with me. When I started my record label Orbitual Recordings, their idea of pushing boundaries was a main focus for the structure of the label. Over the years, I discovered more artists while genres transitioned over time. I became less and less aware of popular EDM while the hipster side of me pushed deeper into the underground. At the end of the day, I think it's important to just listen to as much as you can from a variety of genres to understand how each artist and each song fits into the bigger picture of modern music culture.


What´s new right now?


Right now, I'm working on a few tracks with different singers, trying to step away from "future" and make a song that I can be proud of for its uniqueness. Orbitual Recordings will keep on doing its thing, releasing a variety of genres from smaller producers. Both my personal work, TOBO TOBO and my label, Orbitual Recordings will strive to stay organic, without trying to push for more plays, likes, etc. For me, I never plan to pursue music as a professional career. It's just a hobby and I want it to stay that way.
