Pasborg was already behind the drums at the age of three. He received a present, a drumset it was, from a close friend of his parents who happened to be an acclaimed Danish drummer, namely Alex Riel which also became Pasborg's first drum teacher. In later years, while kept playing, he decided to attend prestigious Copenhagen Jazz Conservatory where the teachers were among others internationally respected Jazz performers such as Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen, Ed Thigpen, Horace Parlan and Atilla Engin to name few. During his studies at the conservatory, he met other young musicians, thirteen of them, which they together formed an independent record label called ILK Music.
