BOBMO (real name Hugues Rey) is a young producer who moved to Paris from Bordeaux a couple of years ago. While in high school, with no musical training, he launched a short-lived rap career, making beats on his Playstation (no, really!), spitting awkward tales of murder and woe. Then he got himself a PC and found a new faith when he discovered legendary labels Dancemania and Trax. Promptly signed by Institubes on the strength of an early demo, he’s released four widely-played and playlisted singles-Let’s Go Bobmo!, To The Bobmobile, 3000% YES and Falling From The Crescent Moon -and toured extensively, from small Australian clubs to Dutch mega raves.
It’s always easier when people are living stereotypes, real-life equivalents of bad sitcom characters. Then you can just whip out the descriptors and tell the world how too-cool-for-school they are. The thing with Bobmo is that this doesn’t work: he’s a complex piece of work, a bunch of riddles wrapped in lots of contradictions. With his last EP, Bobmo moved to claim the throne: three new tracks and a bonus suite revisiting of one of the boy’s greatest tracks: «Rock The» from 3000% YES, reworked by Feadz, Goon & Koyote and Bobmo himself.
In addition to acclaim and nods from an ever-growing worldwide extended family and community of A-list Bobmo fans, as well as the UK and French dance press, singles from Falling From The Crescent Moon have been played countless times on Radio 1 night shows by the likes of Annie Mac (Essential Mix), Andy George & Jaymo, Rob Da Bank, Kissy Sell Out, Alex Metric…
BRING IT ep:
After three solo EPs paying respect to his favourite labels Dancemania and Trax, plus two with his accomplice Surkin as High Powered Boys – «Sounds of Cain» (2008) and «Songs for Abel» (2010), BOBMO returns, still drawing inspiration from the brute age of House music.
The «BRING IT» ep includes two new singles «Bring It» and «My House» infusing flavours and touches that should please Lil’Louis fans and young club heads alike and finally builds a very necessary bridge between a Giorgio Moroder approach to Disco production and Ghetto House, plus amazing reworks by Hot City (Moshi Moshi) and Douster (ZZK / Bebup / Sound Pellegrino).
