Boca 45 - Return Of The Original Dancefreaks 45 - out on Jack To Phono Records

Boca 45 - Return Of The Original Dancefreaks 45
(7"/Digital) Jack To Phono JTP027/JTP027D, 2011-10-17

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.

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.

Boca 45 will this year continue hitting the clubs, armed with a heaving box of 7" vinyl. Already in 2011 he's Rocked Dancefloors around his native UK plus France, Germany, Romania, festivals such as Glastonbury and Balaton in Hungary plus a 3 date summer residency in Dubai?!? His aim? As it has been on all his global travels and international DJ shows for the past decade, to whip crowds into a frenzy with his crazy collection of vintage vinyl gems.

The 7 inch vinyl is off to manufacture and we should have it back for all you vinyl freaks in October!
