aaamusic | On 08, Apr 2012
London-based “maximalist” producer, Bobby Tank, is a marked man, already counting the likes of Starkey, Pinboard Blog and Sonic Router as fans. His latest output, a neon-like 4-tracker, the ‘Afterburn EP’, will be released via MofoHifi Records and drops May 14th 2012.
Clearly influenced by UK dubstep, glitch-hop and 80s boogie, Bobby Tank’s sound is buzzing with nostalgic synths, soulful, blenderized cut-ups, woven leads and atmospherics, thick with heavy bass pressure.
The Afterburn EP will include three new tracks alongside a giveaway track, ‘Circles’. Released as a digital download, lead-track ‘Afterburn’, will also be pressed on a limited 12” label sampler, available from May 21st at select underground stores.
Prior to signing with MofoHifi, Bobby released tracks through Vermin Street, Aisuru, Project Mooncircle and Prime Dub. Johnphonics, John B and Memory 9 are just a few of the choice names to have commissioned remixes by Bobby Tank just this year.
