Bob Leistra, known as doo-bop, is a 24-year-old DJ based in Rotterdam. He started collecting records at the age of 13 and has since built quite a collection of World, Electronics, Boogie, and Synth-pop. He is the co-founder of the projects The Low G Court (duo with DJ Klapsalon) and of Cub Bizarre (series of events and parties at Mono).
Last Tuesday we sat down with Bob to discuss his favorite Synth-pop records. From the Japanese Jazz-funk track Marilyn by Ryo Kawasaki to the late hours dance track Tristana (Wolf Remix) by French artist Mylène Farmer. We hope you enjoy his selection.
