“His productions find a balance between slow, modular synthesis that gives them a pensive beauty and at times skittering, speedy percussion that flies underneath.” – Magnetic Magazine
Colloboh (a portmanteau of Collins Oboh) is a Nigerian-born, Los Angeles-based experimental producer and composer who has spent the past several years cultivating genre-spanning modular wizardry. A self-taught synthesist, Colloboh’s DIY recording diaries quickly amassed a dedicated online following, eventually catching the eye of Leaving Records founder Matthewdavid, who wasted no time tapping the then-twenty-six-year-old to perform at the monthly Leaving showcase, Listen to Music Outside In The Daylight Under a Tree. In 2021, Colloboh permanently relocated to Los Angeles from Baltimore, dedicating himself to music full-time, and quickly becoming a fixture of the city’s vibrant experimental scene. Whereas Colloboh’s debut EP Entity Relation (2021) dove headlong into club beats, Saana Sahel (2023) showcases the breadth of the fledgeling composer’s ambitions.
