DJ Tobias

Tobias is a musician, audio engineer, DJ and designer living in Portland, OR. who’s been DJing, producing and engineering music over 25 years. Tobias got his start spinning house music at Portland Raves and La Luna’s Queer Night in the 1990s, hugely inspired by the occasional performances by house music DJs from Chicago.

He finally found his way to Chicago via a recording program at the Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences where he worked at seminal deep house label Guidance Recordings and released a label based mix CD Midnight Express vol. II in 2003. With some of his regular collaborators he formed Synesthesia, an art and anti genre based series of dance parties incorporating house music, italo disco, new wave, no wave, protohouse, goth, ebm and other underground dance music.

Encompassing an ever expanding taste for genres, Tobias moved back to Portland in 2006, and began playing in bands playing country, garage rock, punk and synth pop. Most notably with Roselit Bone, Kassi Valazza and the Verner Pantons. He continues to DJ with records and can be most frequently found DJing at the Coffin Club.
