While Bobina, or Dmitry Almazov, has had another busy year as part of the Russian DJing elite, with bookings and releases galore, his highlight of 2012 has a more personal tone.

"The number one thing that happened this year was that I got married," he says joyfully. Career-wise, 2012 has seen him release huge tunes like 'Diamond Hell', 'The Space Track' and 'Quattro 372', and collaborate with Richard Durand, plus there are at least two more singles in the pipeline before the year is out. He's still found time to squeeze in some huge sets, though.

"A State Of Trance 550 in the Netherlands was the highlight of the year," he says. "It was amazing because I don't really play Europe much." 2012 has also seen a shift in his musical direction. "I feel sad about it, but progressive house sounds much more interesting than trance now," he says. "Actually, the progressive house sound nowadays is just slower bpm trance."
