Since he was a kid Alexander (aka Sobamonk, Deep Horizons, Elephant moozik, Seven sins) was fascinated by new sounds and began experimenting by making music with anything he could lay his hands on, from cassette players to synthesizers and computers. Alongside his musical training in piano as he was growing up, he was influenced by a variety of genres from Rock to Soul and from Hip-Hop to House.
His djing career kicked off in the mid-90s, playing in various clubs and radio stations in Cyprus, Greece and later on in Australia, UK and Germany. Performed in famous venues such as QBH and Metro (Melbourne) Cream UK , the Gallery @ Turnmills in London, Club der Visionnaire in berlin.
Using Deep Horizons as alias, Alexander gained support from djs around the globe. Most notable was his remix for Sweet Lullaby by the two-time Grammy award winners Deep Forest, which was released under the Canadian label Existence Records and reached Top 10 in iTunes and Beatport charts.
After a 2 year break from music production, he diverted his skills into Sound Design for Multimedia, TV and Theatre. In 2008 he moved to London and later on in 2010 in berlin where he returned back to electronic music production, this time under the name Sobamonk aiming to achieve a more minimalistic, deeper and refined form of house and techno, quite different to the Deep Horizons releases. At the same time attended a Master’s degree in Sound Arts at London’s University of the Arts.
Since then he has released music with Archipel musique, Doma, Lora, Loob, kalimari musique, Littlebus, Terror Clicks, Shufflemood, fach and Kreativa Records under Sobamonk alias.
