The Romanian artist ‘Florin Gabor’ acts usually as a dance-music composer (GABBO). His special musical trip deep into the world of hypnotic trance and chillout is called ‘sofatronik’. And it’s impressive so far.

The six tracks on ‘Sofatronik’ creates a feeling like to loll comfortable on a leopard fur or lying on a beach with sand between the fingers to sprinkle.

‘Florin Gabor’ presents us a really relaxed piece of music and let us stay in a dreamy mood to the leaving summertime.

The tracks ‘DEEA’ and ‘The Realm’ break a little bit the atmosphere but in a refreshing way. Tight beats in combination with smooth harmonies emphasize the talent of ‘Florin Gabor’ leaving the shores of the dancefloor and let his creativity free for a flow.


Eigentlich ist der rumänische Künstler „Florin Gabor“ unter dem Alias „GABBO“ mehr in der Welt der Tanzmusik zu finden.

Auf seinem neuen Album taucht er allerdings tief in die Bereiche Chillout und Hypnotic-Trance ein. Und das wirklich beeindruckend.

Sechs Kompositionen die einem direkt das Gefühl geben, sich kuschelig auf einem Leopardenfell zu rekeln oder an einem Strand den Sand zwischen seinen Fingern rieseln zu lassen.

„Florin Gabor“ ist hier ein ganz besonders entspannendes Stück Musik gelungen, das einem leicht träumend den ausklingenden Sommer versüßt.

Die etwas vertrackteren Stücke „DEEA“ und „The Realm“ mit ihren komplexen Rhythmem setzen noch neue Akzente in Richtung Electronica und unterstreichen das ungewöhnliche Talent von „Florin Gabor“ auch abseits der Tanzfläche seiner Kreativität freien Lauf zu lassen.

biography: Florin Gabor discography:

Seeing the light for the first time on a sunny day of March in 1983, in one of the most beautiful cities in the region of Transylvania, Brasov, in GABBO was born a music lover. The attraction for electronic sounds comes around 1995, when he’d discovered the very popular German TV channel VIVA.

In 2000 he purchased his first hardware and get in touch with music-software (Dance eJay) the first time. He was very amazed about the handling and the features of this program.

He spent a lot of time by playing the eJay, finally he got bored with it and began searching for alternatives. In 2003 new hardware, new programs and at least the first real songs come along.

One year later, a friend of him, who loved the new GABBO sound, helped him to get those tracks played on a local TV station. Since then, he got a lot of appreciation for the work he did and people encouraged him to go on creating music.

He continuously upgrade his hardware environment and his musical horizon. His music starts to sound better while he recently started to think about things in a more logical way. He taking a bite out of the Apple (you know what that means, don't you?), and, at the same time started studying at the popular school of arts learning keyboards.

Yeah, he is seeking to achieve perfection... or something close to it… whatever that means...
