Bob Morane is already a well-known character in the underground scene. Since 1997 he has been working on his musical career with an immovable commitment – behind the decks as well as a producer and a radio and tour host. Everything started with a residency at legendary Fusion Club in Münster (Germany). Bob constantly redefined his own sound – fascinated and inspired by the variety of electronic music. In his sets he skillfully combines the best from various genres. With the right feeling for the sound which represents him he is booked all over Germany and internationally. He was billed for clubs and festivals like WMC in Miama, Nature One, Ruhr in Love, Suicide Circus (Berlin), Studio (Essen), Hotel Shanghai (Essen), Butan (Wuppertal) and many more. Through his collaboration with Spedro many EPs and remixes came up on notable labels like Supdub, Elevation Ltd, Momentum and Cimelde. Bob’s Spaced Out EP, released on Broombeck’s label Yes We Can in November 2014, is also available on vinyl and received a huge amount of positive feedback. The result of a successful cooperation with John Lagora is the label Seoul Community. The imprint can look back at an impressive catalogue of artists like Kolombo, Kevin Over, MSMS, Spedro, Kasbah Zoo and Yooj.
Viva la Electronica is Bob’s second passion. This radio show broadcasted weekly hosts sets and label specials from Moon Harbour, Upon You, Avotre and Mindshake amongst others. The worldwide recognised radio show is broadcasted on more than 20 global channels. Viva la Electronica Magazine and Viva la Electronica Club Tour are also part of the project. International tour stops in the whole of Europe and South America testify the respectable range of the brand. Since 2013 Bob has been the host and resident of a series of parties called Frohnatur in Essen (Germany), where he also runs Viva la Electronica Techno Edition parties.
Bob offers artists and hosts an all around service in the fields of promotion and graphic design through his agency Boxx Group. Bob Morane’s caliber is impressive. He ensured himself a place in the first rows thanks to his quality and profundity. Either on the dance floor, in the radio or in his productions – Bob’s absolute commitment to House and Techno is currently noticeable in everything he does.
