The Brazilian sensation Andre Sobota might just be one of the best kept secrets in electronic dance music. Releasing on labels like Anjunadeep and Perfecto, this classically trained producer seems to have gotten the tip of the hat from all of the people I consider important in dance music, including Mat Zo
who featured Andre Sobota in his BBC Radio 1 Essential mix
Andre's remix of Justin Oh's Find You
was released in September of 2013 on Perfecto (Paul Oakenfold's label) but just found its way to my ears last night in a random YouTube mix I stumbled across. I knew instantly I had to share it with you. This is the light mix of Justin Oh's track which I consider to be better than his Dark mix (yes there is a dark mix
!) but both are pretty amazing. Give it a listen below and let me know what you think in the comments section!

Below I've included Andre's bio from Soundcloud. I felt it's worth the read. And for any aspiring artists, this is what a great bio reads like.
Andre Sobota's Soundcloud Bio
In a musical environment flooded by accessible technology, not many artists have the notion and ability to connect distant areas of music in a distinctive way, and by doing it so well is why Andre Sobota has been conquering hearts and minds all over the globe.
The early background as a musician, composer and jazz improviser, plus the unique influence of growing up in a multicultural environment in Brazil, has given Andre’s music such unique ingredients. When he decided to explore modern electronic music, he constantly sought to master each sub-genre’s language and technique. Such a combination has brought the global market not only top class sounding records, sophisticated encompassing rhythms and breath-taking sound design, but also true musical compositions. Andre effortlessly expresses an endless new range of emotions and colour to modern electronic music.
All these ingredients together is why for many, his official remix for the hit Princess Of China by Coldplay & Rihanna, released in UK, is even more interesting than the original. Over the last decade, Andre has released more than a hundred records on the most prominent record labels in UK such as Pryda Friends, Anjuna
, Toolroom, Perfecto and has also contributed to shape the melodic side of Drum & Bass with the alias Bungle, having two albums released in UK. His brand new single ‘Aura’ was massively supported not only by all DJs within the genre but also outside, being featured on the trance music prodigy Mat Zo's BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix
. After all this, despite being prominent on different genres, Andre seems to be shaping his own
