Based in Billings, USA, J. Michael Kober debuts on Green Martian with the fantastic tow tracker entitled A Brief Infinity. J. Michael Kober is a relative newcomer to the scene, over the years he has familiarized himself with the technology and techniques that would eventually allow him to develop his sound, a blend of Progressive, Tech and Psy Trance with a focus on deep, dark, aggressive rhythms. A demo sent to JOOF Recordings in early 2010 caught the attention of John 00 Fleming, who featured it as the track of the month on his radio show and promptly signed it to his label, enlisting Magnus for the remix. Subsequent releases performed very well indeed as many top artists began to take notice. His DJ career began in 2009 with a residency on Sense.FM. The Essential Edge aired for over a year before he cancelled it due to creative differences. J. Michael has been very supportive in developing the local scene, working with promoters, using different events and club nights to explore other electronic styles. Much more to come from this guy in the future, well worth keeping an eye on.
