Since I grew up listening to electronic music and Jean Michael Jarre, Trance was a logical continuation.

Yes, I am coming from a family of musicians, my grandma was a piano player, my uncle music professor and the majority of my family members are playing some instruments so that significantly influenced my growing up.

I am dobermann (dobie) owner and dobermann lover. So, it was very easy and simple to choose name Dobie.

My latest single name is “Bambola”, official relase was on December 16th, so it is still fresh. You can listen to the song on YouTube or SoundCloud. In next ten days song will be available on most popular music online services: iTunes, Spotify, Amazon MP3, Google Play, Pandora, 8tracks, Shazam, Apple Music, etc.

Not really, but you never really know what life might bring you.

There is a huge difference, in mentality, style and taste. The Irish are still more open than Croats.

I am working on the new remix of song “My Everything”, a new song “Love Ssstory” and the new project of Dobie Records called Spell Code, quite busy.
