BOCA 45 - 2020 DONUTS
Our old mate Bristol beat maestro BOCA 45 has released 5 limited edition (300 stamped & numbered) coloured vinyl 45s this year and has now joined them together alongside 2 brand new tracks as a full LP.
Delving deep within the world of soul, breakbeat, hip-hop and everything in between. Flexing his studio muscle as of late, the Bristol multi-instrumentalist and producer is demonstrating his unique ability to blend song writing and production in some of freshest sounds around.
Featuring gnarly horn lines, percussive stabs and overflowing with groove, the foundations are perfectly laid for guests such MCs such as Craig G, Ash The Author, vocalists such as Swaby from The Heavy, Alison Garner from TheFauns, Hannah Williams’ undeniably explosive vocals take charge on the track “Powerful”.
It’s no surprise Hannah’s work has been sampled by Jay Z on the Grammy-nominated track ‘4:44,’ or the fact that she’s also worked alongside Tyler The Creator amongst others. Hot Wheels (The Chase)’ sounds like something straight out of a Tarantino movie. A cover of Badder Than Evil’s 1973 track, this revamp is a real grooving, upbeat, cheeky record with plenty of guitar hooks and disco drumming.
