Ukrainian DJ/producer Skober is one of the fastest rising stars in electronic music right now, demolishing dancefloors worldwide with his signature sound that’s comprised of elements of bangin’ house and deep techno.
The friendly Ukrainian’s been on a roll over the last two years, remixing and producing tracks for labels like Drumcode, Phobiq, Analytictrail, Respekt, Trapez, Fone Audio, Remain, Rhythm Converted, Spark Musik, Code and Organism. His productions have garnered support from big names like Adam Beyer, Alan Fitzpatrick, Joseph Capriati, Nicole Moudaber and Slam, but it’s clearly only a matter of time until he’s one of the biggest names in techno himself. Not that his sound is pure techno, mind you. Skober’s got a sound of his own that’s hard to pin down. “I like to use tech house beats, synth parts that sound like they’re from the nineties, vocal parts and strong, powerful techno kicks and basslines.” It’s the sort of sound that works equally well in cosy clubs and giant festivals.
2014 was a great year for Skober, who played all over the world and joined Adam Beyer’s unstoppable Drumcode imprint, but 2015 promises to be even bigger. “I’m very proud to be on board of the biggest techno label in the world. It was the high point of my year. I’m now working on a remix for Monika Kruse, which will be a massive after hours techno remix, and I will also be releasing tracks on Analytictrail, Phobiq, Alleanza, Elevate and Toolroom. 2015 will be very productive.”
