Thanks to a recommendation I’ve been reading online from the great Burnt Toast Radio Show, I have discovered the delights of Bristol’s BocaWoody today.
Consisting of beats-merchant, Scott Hendy (aka Boca 45) and UK turntablist Lee Woodvine, (aka DJ Woody), BocaWoody make the perfect the DJ/production team, with both artists already making a name for themselves in prior solo projects.
Boca 45 has already earned himself a good reputation for his work with Andy Smith as Dynamo Productions as well as from his many other solo records, attracting an array of fans such as Serge from Kasabian and Huey Morgan from BBC 6Music, as well DJ’ing for Banksy and Roots Manuva!
DJ Woody is a twice World Champion DJ and has been described as ‘The best DJ in the World’ by Hudson Mohawke, with his skills being sought for tours and recordings with the likes of Tim Simenon, Madlib, Oli Teeba, DJ Vadim and Grammy Award winner Mala Rodriguez.
Joining the duo for five of the tracks with his unmistakable voice and infectious rhymes is Woody’s longtime One Self (NinjaTune) and Russian Percussion cohort, BluRum13. Listen to him at work on today’s song choice, Artbreaker.
I’m definitely impressed with this album so far and can highly recommend this to anyone who appreciates big beats infused with great samples, this is the funky kind of hip hop that I just love! Listen to the fantastic Artbreaker above.
