Rather than seeking out track after track or relying upon playlists that randomly mix, Bongo Boy Records make discovering new music easy with their new take on music television.
Every song is different. But usually one of us will come to the other with a riff, or a verse, or a chorus, or just some part of a song, or even just a weird synth sound or something, and then we’ll both work together on making it a whole cohesive song.
Fusing reggae & electronic rock among an often heavily atmospheric ambiance – all the while pouring ideas & reflections on life into the process by means of some simple yet fairly quick, rhythmic vocal melodies.
KL Noise Makerz bring through soulful, smooth vibes, organic & skillful, every element feeling perfectly fit & delicately included for the best possible mix. Somewhere between the likes of Jack Johnson & Sublime, but with an air of just a little something that’s crisp, clean, and brand new.
Jahmings Maccow brings something fresh to the scene – this fusion of genres, the reggae vocal style and the organic blues-rock ambiance, combined with writing of social depth and unwavering honesty, is a blessing to stumble upon.
Almost reaching the five minute mark, this single is one of the most well-crafted & considerate reggae releases of recent years. Yardie is something of a grower, for sure – those classic vibes generally either win you over from the offset or they don’t, but in this case the song grows more entrancing & enjoyable the further along you get.
Having toured with the likes of Beenie Man & Jimmy Cliff, Mullings’ experience & connection to the arts is unquestionable. On this track, his skills meet with the simple good vibes of the reggae genre, bringing together a free-flowing guitar solo & a lightly uplifting soundscape.
Rose has the addictive qualities of an alternative hit, complex in terms of the details & the thought that’s gone into it, but simple in terms of the melody & the overall vibe & sound you take away. Undoubtedly a top track from the whole of 2018 so far. Incredibly clever, catchy, stylish, and refreshingly unique right now.
The track is subtle but certain in its fusion of genres & in driving with an authentic approach to expression & a clear love for & connection to music. There’s something about a track like this that makes it need no real introduction
Walking the creative line somewhere between Jack Johnson & John Butler Trio, with an occasional, relevant dash of emotional turmoil.
A smooth & soulful piece that drives with the organic colour & carefree attitude of a simple bass line & some easy going vocals.
You get a sense this music comes naturally to the artist, which, combined with these folk-rock, acoustic ska rhythms & vibes, makes for a totally enjoyable EP.
