The story of GOBI begins in west Texas, in the border town of El Paso, where Justin Dillon and Phil Arciniega first met. The two would venture across the border every weekend spending countless nights dancing in the clubs and discotecas on "The Strip" in Ciudad Juarez. There the thriving dance grooves and uptempo beats would take them on many sleepless nights and instill an unstoppable curiosity and desire to create electronic dance music. A music and sound, that has led to the duo, to be compared to "RATATAT fronted by Zack De la Rocha", and has gained GOBI the reputation for turning any room into a dance party.
Their versatile style of electro hip-hop has landed them at Insominiacs 2011 Nocturnal Fest, 2011 Neon Desert Music Fest, 2012 Bacardi+ Fest, 2012 Shiner and Do512 present The Big One, and the 2012 Pachanga Music Festival.
GOBI's unique hybrid of EDM mixed with lyrically driven hooks has allowed them to open` for acts ranging from: The Cool Kids and Chiddy Bang, to Dj's such as MSTRKRFT, Treasure Fingers, Z- Trip, Paper Diamond, and new dance groups Big Gigantic, Future Rock, and Nobody Beats
