Grown up in the heart of the West German Ruhr area, it was Hip-Hop that brought Zohki and his former brother-in-crime together in the nineties and led them to house music few years after. It didn’t take them long to gain international reputation. It was Matthias Tanzmann who first discovered their potential and gave them a platform on his stellar Moon Harbour label. The rest is history: From their high-flying „One Way Out“ debut EP with kick-start support from the likes of DJ Sneak and Radio Slave, following club strikes via their Leipzig moon base, Romania’s Natural Rhythm and Steve Lawler’s VIVa Music imprint alongside worldwide VIVa showcases and a residency for the VIVa Warriors Ibiza season 2014, to the duos break-up on behalf of their solo plans. While homeboy Roozlee fully returns to Hip-Hop, Zohki continues their strong house legacy.
On a solo tip since 2015, dj-wise he returns to his first love – vinyl – aroused by his first purchased record by Armand van Helden. He deliberately calms down, takes things deeper instead of pushing too hard, building up his very own music studio and giving his sound a more personal touch.
With gigs at Sonar festival, Amsterdam Dance Event, various Berlin hotspots such as Sisyphos, Watergate or Katerblau, Kiesgrube in Neuss and a residency at one of West Germany’s most renowned clubs – Studio in Essen – his plan bears fruit. But his residency is far more than just spreading house vibes on a constant level and playing next to the world’s best DJs. It’s also home to his very own event series ’Deep In You’ that welcomes artists like Shonky, Subb-an or Point G.
First solo production on labels such as Moon Harbour, Get Physical, Oblack and Monza Ibiza leave no doubt: Zohki goes deep, deep In you!
His course is set: Around the world, to the moon and back!
