WOB! is a Serbian/Irish musician, electronic music producer and DJ.
He plays drums, guitar, bass, keys and turntables.
WOB! joined the Irish music scene in 2008 as a session drummer and played around the country with many bands, including the legendary Jerry Fish.
Currently on a mission to bring chill out vibes, feature local singers, and showcase Ireland’s beautiful scenery, WOB! can be found behind the drums performing his liquid drum and bass music with a full band, featuring singer/guitar player Dubh Lee, and Stephen Kerr on analogue synths.
With relaxing visuals filmed in the West of Ireland, and hot Mediterranean, WOB! delivers summer vibes packed audio-visual combo that will place your mind in a chill out zone while your body goes wild.
While the music video for 2017 single ‘Higher’ was selected as ‘Video of the Week’ by The Irish Times, the song was No 1. on Spin 103.8 Irish Alternative’s top 3 chart for five weeks, and has been selected as official Vantastival 2017 aftermovie soundtrack, powered by Volkswagen Ireland.
WOB! closed 2017 with special guest live set at interactive show BYOBeat by Desperados/Heineken, and new material is set for release in late 2018.

Though they’ve been around since 2013, this is my first exposure to the onomatopoeic finery of Dublin drum-and-bass band Wob! (Exclamation mark theirs, though very much warranted.)
“WOB!” refers to the wobbly bassline that is a feature of this Dublin’ act’s sound.
The title track of the EP is a upbeat delight, a bright synth groove with vocals by Sheena Styles that showcases the kind of style that WOB! are able to embody.
An essential release, familiarise yourself with WOB! and get set to MOVE!
Their truly unique blend of drum ‘n’ bass and electronica impressed the pants off the GoldenPlec crew at festivals including Knockanstockan, Vantastival and Electric Picnic last year. WOB!’s unmissable set is guaranteed to get you dancing.
The ability to recycle and upcycle music appears to be the challenge for most acts these days, especially within Electronica. But Dublin-based WOB! are flying the flag for the scene here in Ireland.
