MOOBEK (aka DJ Y.U.P.) is an award-winning South Korean EDM producer and international touring DJ. He is currently located in the United States. MOOBEK’s combined 22 years of experience playing hip-hop, EDM, and top-40 mainstream, makes him a true open format DJ.
Hailing from the underground club scene in South Korea, MOOBEK started his career showcasing his art at some of Korea’s original nightclubs. His talent landed him residencies at two of Seoul’s most prestigious clubs, and soon thereafter led him to perform at many of South Korea’s major global festivals including Ultra Music Festival, World DJ Festival, the Yeosu Expo, Pentaport Rock Festival, and Samsung’s Summer Wave Festival.
MOOBEK’s international bookings include global festivals and high-profile nightclubs in South Korea, Canada, Vietnam, Japan, Philippines, China, Taiwan, Macau, Thailand, Malaysia, and Cambodia. After spending many years touring Asia, Moobek permanently relocated from South Korea to the United States in 2015 to further his music career.
Since relocating to America, MOOBEK has found success DJing in major cities including Los Angeles, Seattle, Hawaii, New York, Boston, Washington DC, Atlanta, Houston, Phoenix, Denver, San Francisco and parts of Canada.
