Boca 45 hits Sheffield


Sheffields Thirsty Ear crew have been well known for putting out records and putting on eclectic nights for the last 12 months or so, and in October they are to be graced by none other than Boca 45 at their regular Saturday night throwdown at Harleys.

Boca has made a name for himself releasing 12″s on Hombre, Illicit, Superslick Stereo Sounds and High Noon Records, as well as recording with Andy Smith (Portishead DJ) as Dynamo Productions. He has remixed Thunderball (aka Fort Knox Five), Chevy and The Bodybeard Brothers and toured extensively in Japan, Australia, Canada, USA, Russia, UK and the Philippines, averaging 150 gigs a year.

Boca’s second LP ‘Vertigo Sounds’ is stuffed with full-flavoured soul and funk, deftly coupled with crunchy, hip hop beats and b-boy breaks. musically ambitious and indulgent with real instrumentation, Bass from Jim Barr (Portishead) and Strings from Ben Salisbury (David Attenborough’s ‘Life Of Mammals’!) are seamlessly woven together by Boca’s signature cut and paste style with each track containing elements of 60’s and 70‘s rock, soundtracks and soul.
Boca’s debut LP ‘Pitch Sounds’ (released on Grand Central in 2004) received support from Steve Lamacq & XFM. ‘In The City’ featuring McKay was nominated for ‘Tune Of The Year’ on Gilles Peterson’s prestigeous Worldwide Awards, and was critically acclaimed, with Straight No Chaser describing it as “Expansion to the realms of Bossa and Cinematics” and Arena comparing it to “Massive Attack on a good day – produced by David Holmes!”
Boca has previosly recorded with Portisheads tour DJ Andy Smith as Dynamo Productions who released their album Analogue on Illicit recordings (UK), Unique records (Germany) and Invada Records in Australia.
