The 14th of April 1961 and astronaut Yuri Gagarin steps inside Vostok 1 to achieve what no human before him had done. Undertaking the first manned spaceflight in history, he captured the world's attention and imagination in a heartbeat.
50 years on - as Russia and the rest of the planet, commemorate and celebrate that most incredible of human endeavour as Bobina prepares to release his own salute to Gagarin's extraordinary voyage….
In 2004, with his first album 'Catchy' and then 'Again' in 2008, Bobina - the Russian Federation's biggest DJ export - brought his electronic music vision to dancefloors. Now with his third studio album primed to launch, Dmitry Almazov's is about to soundtrack his own long-standing fascination with the night sky.
The album blasts off with 'Here Comes The Night' - the album's dynamic, dramatic piano-lined, orchestral-hit overture. Setting the tone for the audio that follows, 'Visible Touch' ups the atmospherics, using symphonic strings and rolling drums, before surfing into its epic, celestially tinged 3-minute breakdown.
To any self-respecting trance fan, 'You Belong To Me', which follows, should need little in the way of introduction. Featuring the smoldering, entrancing tones of American voxstress Betsie Larkin, in the short space of time since release it has become one of the biggest Bobina club hits to date. Last year's runaway radio hit 'Angel of the North' (which scored an incredible 30,000 plays on stations inside the Federation alone) is up next. Featuring Sabrina Altan's uplifting vocals it rocked floors from one end of 2010 to the other and appears in its new album mix form.
