The story of the dj who named himself after the Egyptian crocodile god, does not fit any typical scheme. In the early 2000's, the raging drum'n'bass fever in Budapest was the first real electronic music experience for Sobek. Parallelly, digging in local record shops and some others within reach across Europe, the raw sound and sleepless nights were replaced by a deeper interest in current music trends. The repertoire ranged on a broad spectrum of hip-hop, electro, house, drum'n'bass, breakbeat, easy listening in the colorful, but still, black collection. lt became more and more clear that for his dj ambitions, he, has to forget mixing several sounds and narrow his musical spectrum, so he got rid of the abundant styles that were out of breath.
House music and its early roots led him to his destiny: the attention now is mostly on pumpin' four-to-the-floor rhythms. He adores positive message in house music, mostly when touched by different cultures and folk elements, but he is quite open to anything new that represents value.
The first release by Sobek called „Ubomi" landed straight on Stacey Pullen's Balance Mix Compilation distributed worldwide, as which was followed by „True Anomaly" strongly supported by andhim and many more heavyweight players across the industry. His remix for Kiko Navarro's Ohashia attracted Pete Tong's attention as well. Pete premiered the 3,1 remix pretty soon then, which has been produced for Super Flu's Musik 3+ album.
After dropping quality remixes on a regular basis and became one of Black Coffee's favorite, the year 2018 is the breakthrough for Sobek. A tour in East Africa, shows across Europe and a debut at Heart Ibiza followed by joining the Monaberry family gave confidence and opened a new chapter for the artist. While keeping up his residencies at the famous daytime event Citymatine and "Sobekin" in Aether Club, his tour schedule getting busier than ever.
