GOBI w/ Syne Wav
February 2, 2013 @ 9:00 pm - 2:00 am
The story of GOBI begins in west Texas, in the far border town of El Paso, where Justin Dillon and Phil Arciniega first met. The two would venture across the border every weekend spending countless nights dancing in the clubs and Discotecas on “The Strip” in Ciudad Juarez. There the thriving grooves and uptempo beats would take them on many sleepless nights and instill an unstoppable curiosity and desire to create electronic dance music. GOBI’s hybrid of EDM mixed with lyrically driven hooks, has been compared to “RATATAT fronted by Zack De la Rocha”, and has gained GOBI the reputation for turning any room into a dance party. The band’s highly anticipated debut LP is set to be released in the fall of 2012.
Tony Stewart a.k.a. Syne Wav comes from a very diverse musical background, which is apparent from both is work and his live performances. Raised on country legends and classic rock and role while being totally immersed in the electronic age of music is the result of such a diverse spectrum of musical styles and taste. Syne Wav first made his entrance into the B/CS music scene in the summer of 2011 after teaming up with the Drasco for his first show and since then has been performing on a regular basis in the area, as well as a handful of shows in Houston and Austin. His combination of live instrumentation alongside his critical mixing skills he blurs the lines between live musician and DJ, which is what truly separates him from the rest of the pack. Anyone that attends one of these performances is always in for a real treat, with addictive groove’s and melodies the whole way through it’s impossible not to get sucked into the music. Be sure to keep on the lookout for this rising star!
