Tobi, the set proved to be the most important that he ever played, and it amplified his career almost immediately. Soon after he returned to Europe the invites began pouring in: for his Cocoon debut in Ibiza, his still existing residency @ the Robert Johnson, to U60311, and to Anja Schneider’s annual 72-hour Love Parade broadcast in Berlin. Increasingly aware of his isolation in Munich, Tobi moved to Berlin in 2001, and he joined the Cocoon agency the following year, and launched into an ever growing schedule of DJ bookings in Germany, Europe, and further afield. Production work has been an vital creative outlet for Tobi, and has reinforced him as one of the driving forces of electronic music. He regards original productions, collaborations, remixes and DJ mixes with equal importance, and his raw talent and diversity have seen him at the controls for Chicks On Speed and Miss Kittin, shifting 60,000 goldcertified units with his hit “Meeting The Girls Mix” rework of 2Raumwohnung’s “Sexy Girl”, being licensed for John Digweed’s Transitions series, and recording celebrated sets for Cocoon, Secretsundaze and V Records.
In recent years, with his international commitments accelerating, Tobi has scaled back his production work to focus on his first love: being a DJ. He is a true veteran in the booth and continues to be invigorated by nightlife, relishing the give & take with the dancefloor, playing techno at house tempo, and house at techno tempo, throwing in unexpected selections, and mixing with his unique signature flair. From his defining fabric debut, to his recent epic 8- hour session for Panorama Bar, to the Terrace of Amnesia, and amongst the sweaty throng of Robert Johnson, Tobi is a master of the craft, working with and for the crowd, and driving them, willingly, to wild abandon.
