Rodriguez Jr. returns to Mobilee with his evocative album Baobab. Resident Advisor named the French artist in their Best Live Acts of 2016, and in between his famed live shows, he has created a ten track masterpiece that elicits powerful emotions through music. When reflecting on the album he has said, “Baobab is about roots. It has mainly been written whilst traveling and I needed to re-connect to my roots: the music I used to listen to as a teenager from South Of France, my first parties, this fantastic sense of freshness, enthusiasm and innocence. This is why I decided to call it Baobab: a big tree proud to grow up in a lush surrounding, with it’s roots deep in the floor”.
The French artist builds up an atmospheric presence through the use of silences, breaks ad perfectly timed beats. This creates an overwhelmingly visceral experience for his attendees. It’s not just about the basslines for him though, the artist uses his own vocals and collaborates with Liset Aleaon the track ‘Heal Me’ to create music that is spontaneous and emotive.
He’ll be supported by Kevin Over, who released Mobilee Back to Back Volume 11 in March. The German-born artist has been billed as one of the scene’s hottest new talents winning over the approval of Maya Jane Coles, Adam Beyer and many more. He is definitely one to watch.
Ralf Kollmann himself will also be there, founder of Mobilee and established DJ with access to the labels unique back catalogue of incredible music. With his label in the running for Mixmag’s Label of the Decade, he brings his own personal touch to proceedings.

Finally, the team will be joined by Egg residents The Willers Brothers at London’s legendary venue, who are currently signed to the What Came First Label.
