The first album by architect, DJ and electronic music producer Bobsan named 40X20 - read forty times twenty - was released right now, as slovak alternative music Radio_FM reports. The title Bobsan explains by the double jubilees - his age and the number of years he devoted to composing electronic dance music. The album is released digitally on all streaming platforms and at the same time completely free on soundcloud.
On album 40X20 you will listen to 9 songs, which are an eclectic multi-genre collection of singles. There are no fillers, and they are organized so that they are pleasant to listen to. Some of the songs are already released as singles - such as “É tudo nosso,” which was released on Gergaz's Beatgarden 7 compilation, or “Rinccali”, which is quite a Shazamed track, according to Bobsan's sources.
Back to the music: Bobsan's album is hard put a genre in, for the general listener it is an alternative electronic dance music. For those more educated, it is an eclectic mix of housemusic, postdubstep, future bass, wonky, reggaeton and chillout music. Somewhere between the dance floor and nice listening music. The cherry on the cake is the last song, which is a remix 80's slovak sythpop classic of Tlaková Níž (pressure is low) by Richard Müller, which agreed to release it. This remix is only available on soudcloud: (soundcloud.com/bobsan
) and bandcamp (bobsan.bandcamp.com/album/40x20
40X20 is a solo piece of music, but to create graphics, Bobsan invited illustrator and innovative tattoo artist Quaid from Holman.tattoo, who is behind the artwork and visual concept of the cover. Talented photographer Lenka Kandravá photographed Bobsan as a underlay for hand-drawed album cover. Guide for music-compositional, sound and visual aspects - the producer of the album is fashion designer Veronika Kostková.
Bobsan vydáva svoj prvý album 40x20, na svoje 40. narodeniny a po 20 rokoch pôsobenia na elektronickej hudobnej scéne ako Dj a producent. Album tvorí 9 skladieb, ktoré eklekticky spájajú rôzne elektronické štýly, ako house-music, chillout, future bass, wonky alebo funk, a svojou náladou a zvukom sa tak pohybujú niekde medzi tanečným parketom a príjemnou hudbou na počúvanie. Sú to žánre, ktoré silne ovplyvňujú samotného autora.
Bobsan v skladbách neustále kompozične napreduje, radí za seba aj nečakané zvuky a motívy, pridáva a uberá vrstvy a tým vytvára príbeh pre poslucháča, ktorý ho baví počúvať. Práve preto zas DJs ťažšie nájdu miesto, kde zo skladby odísť.
