Don’t say Boca’s back; he’s never been away. Scott “Boca 45” Hendy is the Bristol UK beatsmith who’s been at the forefront of funky breakbeat music for well over a decade.
With three solo artist albums in the bag, Pitch Sounds, Vertigo Sounds and Bombonera Sounds for labels Jalapeno, Grand Central and Unique, dancefloor devastating collabos with DJ Andy Smith as “Dynamo Productions”, and the “Beekeepers” project with rising star Parker, now has never been a better time to catch a Boca 45 fever.
“Return Of The Original Dance Freaks” parts 1 & 2 sees Boca’s debut on Jack To Phono Recordings.
Boca here pays homage to legendary Japaneese label Major Force (with artwork to match : ) and supplies a Disco/Hip Hop/Cut and Shut/Dancefloor monster which will keep floors shaking into 2012 and way beyond.
His love of disco, soul, funk and hip-hop jumps out of anything he touches, and it’s easy to make comparisons to fellow sample-slayers like Cut Chemist, RJD2, DJ Format and DJ Shadow.
