Hi there, my name is Martin Meyer alias BOBBY from Savva Records|Namasteria Booking & Events.
In 2011 started my career as a dj in the german psytrance scene. 2013 i had my first open air experience at the “Magnolia Open Air” near Hamburg and 2014 i presented my first live set at the “Alles ist vergeben und vergessen Birthday Bash”(Alte Raeucherei/Kiel).
Your life-story and relationship with your work
Tell us a little about you and your work:
In 2011 i met Marcel Neetz (aka. ConnexX/Prog On Syndicate Rec.), he inspired me the most, introduced me into the scene and also helped me a lot with my career. I’m a progressive trance dj & live act, my style is a reaches from simple offbeat progressive trance to very funky and sunny dirty progressive (135 – 145BPM).
Currently what projects are you working on? And what future plans have you chalked out for yourself?:
Right now I’m working on my first EP, i allready got a big range of tracks, but i only want to release high quality and fresh new sound. I don’t got plans for the future, cause i never thought, that i’ll make it this far, so I just let myself drift with the wind and see what will happen.
What influenced you to get into your field?:
Befor psytrance, i worked in many other genre’s, like hip hop, metal & reggea for example. I can play a lot of instruments and also, i listen to very much music, so it is realy hard for me, to specify it.
