The 7” is arguably one of the 20th century’s greatest art forms. What should have been a disposable format, either as the herald for the altogether more serious LP or the truncated version of the extended 12”, ended up a the perfect expression of modern music - tightened up, fat free and to the point. At some point during a DJ career that’s lasted pretty much the entirety of his adult life, Boca 45 (aka Bristolian Scott Hendy) eschewed all other formats to choose the 7” as his weapon of choice. Embracing and celebrating the limitations of the format (both in terms of record length and the type of music showcased on discs of that size), Hendy set out on a truly singular path for soundtracking parties the world over. In 2015 Banksy personally requested him to DJ with his 45s at the opening night at his Dismal Land Show, now, in his forty fifth year on Planet Earth, he’s made an album that reflects a life well spent flipping through the racks the world over.

Boca 45 says "My 4th Long Player "Forty Five" it's an album to musically document my Forty Five years on planet earth in 2019.

On this album i've collaborated with lots of the people i've previously worked with over the past 20 plus years recording music.

Vocal collaborations come courtesy of Louis Baker (Soul On Top / Move A Mountain) Emskee (Energy Boost / The Roxy) Sergio Pizzorno from Kasabian (White, Blue & Red) & Gee Ealey who i worked with on Malachai (Lonely)

Musically i've locked horns with many familiar friends such as DJ Woody, Geoff Barrow, Billy Fuller, Ben Salisbury & many more across the 12 tracks.

The album is a very personal statement. I made the inner collage & wrote the comprehensive sleeve notes breaking down the back ground of each track whilst my teenage twin Sons designed the front Forty Five logo."
