A Night With... Tobi Neumann photo gallery
For November’s installment of A Night With...we’re reaching out to one of Germany's most talented DJs and Cocoon mainstay Tobi Neumann. Neumann will be making pulses rise on the dance floor with his slick and impeccable mixing fused with his renowned track selection all night long.
A driving force on the German electronic scene for ten years and signed to Cocoon’s impressive DJ roster, Tobi’s career has emanated from a background that took him from classical music and the piano to playing guitar in several bands in Munich. Tobi then went into the studio as a student and the love affair with all sounds electronic began. After making a name for himself as a producer of commercial jingles and movie soundtracks, he got infected with electronic music at the '95 Berlin Love Parade where he rapidly turned initial dance music intrigue into a residency at Munich's Ultraschall II where he’s hosted the legendary Flokati House Club since 1998.
In 2008, Tobi returned to the studio to focus on ‘Sensitiva‘, collaboration with Onur Özer. Their first tracks, the “mimosa”-EP were released on the Dutch label 100% Pure, the second EP ‘Viola Tricolor’ on Secretsundaze-Music and along with Matthew Styles, Tobi produced the opener track “xtra lunch” for Cocoon‘s 2009 i-compilation. Tobi and Matthew also had a big club hit with the new-interpretation of “transform”.
Influenced and inspired by the intensity and immediacy of playing and mixing live, Tobi has played the Berlin Love Parade, Time Warp and May Day festivals in Germany, Cocoon in Ibiza and all the clubs that count world-wide. Now we welcome him to a secret East London location to be taken on a magical journey for eights hours, with just Tobi and his music.
