It's not just been a big year for Bobina, aka Russian producer Dmitry Almazov, it's been a big year for his homeland too. The nation has been celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of launching Yuri Gagarin into the cosmos, winning the space race against the United States. So caught up in the national fervour was Bobina that he even named his last album 'Rocket Ride'.
“For us it was a really big deal,” he says of the set. “And it got a great reaction from the trance family.”

Some DJs, they're getting bored, but for me this is one of the best years of my career.
