Biography of Koba
|Real name / ||Rüdiger Kober|
Born in January '79 in Stuttgart (Germany) he early developed his sense for electronic music. After several more innocent attempts he started his first own clubnight in '99 at club NACHTLEBEN in Frankfurt/Main. 2 years later he moved to Munich where he co-initiated one of the first webbased radioshows of the city. The elektronikZOO radio show presented once a week the newest records for Techno and House music.
Since year 2003 he runs together with Mirko Gresser the Munich based STOCK5 label on which you can find such great artists like HEARTTHROB, INXEC, CESARE VS. DISORDER, MAREK BOIS, JICHAEL MACKSON and AHMET SISMAN. Records from STOCK5 are licensed on MIX CDs from many big names like ELLEN ALLIEN or SVEN VÄTH recently for his IBIZA NINTH SEASON amongst others. STOCK5 stands for a unique sound between the three most important slots of electronic music that are Techno, House and Minimal and above this the label is always open for some surprises and young fresh artists that they help to develop and find a warm and familiar place for their music and ideas.
Furthermore STOCK5 initiated the very famous MONSTERS OF HOUSE Festival that took place for several times in big european cities like Munich, Zurich and Stuttgart.
In year 2006 he also realized one of his biggest dreams and released together with DARIO ZENKER his first two records on the swiss based label 60seconds. The so called project FELDAH & KOBA celebrated a great success and was foundable in many record cases of big DJs of the electronic scene.
From youngest years on he always moved a lot and thats why he can watch on a very big amount of gigs that he played in high quality clubs like Dachkantine (Zurich), Harry Klein, Ultraschall & Registratur (Munich), U60311 (Frankfurt), City Hall (Barcelona), Rocker33 & Climax (Stuttgart) beneath many others in Europe.
During that time he accompained an uncountable amount of big DJs that would be too much to write them down here and like this SMASH TV, ANDRE GALLUZI, NOZE, LOSOUL, FRANCO CINELLI, AKUFEN, KOZE, MATHIAS KADEN and ONUR ÖZER shall be the ones to be noted on this place.
Today he is located in Chile and working on his first solo EPs that will be released on STOCK5 soon, where else?
