In May of the same year Tobax took to the stage in St Petersburg playing at ‘Griboedov’ where his mix was also featured on the radio and in 2013 Tobax released successful tracks under Fokuz and Citrus Recordings.
The arrival of 2015 saw releases of his VIP version of ‘Mezzanine’ under Titan Records followed by his VIP version of ‘Lockdown’ which was released on the ‘5 Years of Titan Records Compilation, and it was these releases which gave him the launch pad for international bookings DJ’ing at nights across Europe such as the award winning ‘Double Trouble’ in Prague.
