BOCA 45

to Apr 13

BOCA 45

Heavy Funky Hip Hop Beats and Dance floor treats

Funky Bristolian Boca 45 has been droppin’ his Beat Bombs for many years.. With styles upon styles the best way to soak up the Boca 45 Experience is to catch one of his blistering live DJ / PA sets using strictly 7’’ vinyl records... and now you can - at the Mesmerist - for free!

Forty Five is the soundtrack of a life. A revolution in sound played out in stacks of 7” singles; a long player that cuts and pastes together numerous disparate musical strands.

Each track is constructed all the beautiful brevity of that most perfectly realised no-flab art form - the 7” single. And, like any great selection of 7s pumping out of a jukebox, Forty Five shifts styles, grooves and ideas with each new selection - from concrete jungle orchestrations to midnight funk grooves, bumping roller dis- co sounds to discomfiting paranoid beats. It’s the sound of a life spent spinning and flipping.


FREE ENTRY ALL NIGHT.
