COBZ (pronounced Cobes) passion for music started at an early age. First cassette tape purchased
at age 7, first rock concert at 12, commenced classical musical study at age 11, lead clarinet in the
high school band at 15, first underground rave at 16, purchased Technics 1200’s at 20 and has since
developed a self confessed vinyl addiction !
COBZ started his career as a bedroom DJ playing smooth French and Chicago house on his
lounge room coffee table, progressing to banging out Fingerlickin / TCR inspired breaks at his
Fremantle music studio - it was here that saw the creation of Club Cleo Productions. Over the
past few years COBZ has been mixing nu-funk and hip hop inspired tunes whilst maintaining
a healthy passion for all things breakbeat.
COBZ took out the inaugural Left Bank DJ Competition in 2010 with his nu funk / ghetto funk
style of tunes and has gone onto play with both local and national beat jockies such as Slynk,
Fdel, Philly Blunt, Tom Drummond and Mama Says Yes! (Waks Traks).
In addition to COBZ being one of the resident DJs at the Left Bank, he can also be found
playing soul, hip hop, funk, house and breaks a variety of venues across Perth including;
