Posted in Mixes with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 17, 2011 by Boka Records

It’s time for a long-overdue installment of the Boka HQ mix series. Stepping up is mr Squarewave, upcoming London producer whos single ‘Snitch / Dirty Game’ is out now on Boka Records’ digital series [TANK] BUY HERE.

Boka HQ did a brief interview with the man Squarewave as an introduction to this producer/DJ:

BOKA: So, Introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about how you started out in music?
SW: Im born and bred in East London. Been into music from an early age as my dad was a Punjabi singer songwriter and put out a few records. I also used to hear my older cousins playing Dreamscape tape packs in their cars all the time so thats how I got into Jungle. From there I just immersed myself into collecting records, listening to the pirates and going out to raves. It was after going to a night called Eastern Drum and Breaks at Herbal in Shoreditch, that I hooked up with Nasha Records and started producing with them. We put out a few dubstep and dnb records as Nasha Experience over the past couple years. Now I’m working more on my own productions.

BOKA: You started up your own label ‘New World Audio’ tell us a little bit about the label and your motivation behind starting it up…
SW: The label has its second release in July, a 4 track ep. I started it to put out music by myself, my brother Sukh Knight and my friend Shandy. I felt that we had a lot of quality music that needed to get out there for people to hear.

BOKA: What’s the London scene like right now from your perspective, what sort of vibe are you really feeling at the moment?
SW: I am very proud to be born and living in East London. The creativity levels are very high, be it music, art, design or fashion. I’m enjoying the nightlife as these days you can hear a range of tempos and flavas all in one room. One of my favourite parties is a promotion called Ergh, who do monthly nights at Cable.
Musically, at the moment I’m really into the hip hop kinda stuff that Kromestar and Jay 5ive are releasing, and also the tribal flavas that Morphy and Raiden are coming out with. But I still listen to a lot of classic US Hip hop and a lot of dnb jungle – Calibre, Dillinja and Full Cycle.

BOKA: What are your Top 5 tracks right now?
SW:
1. Kromestar & The Real McKoy – Let Go – dub
2. Marc Rapson – The Kalimba – Futuristica Music
3. Morphy – Black Velvet – Voodoo Music
4. Kromestar – Don’t Make Sense – dub
5. Squarewave, Sukh Knight and Mr. K – Tribesman – New World Audio

BOKA: What are you Top 5 tracks of all time?
SW:
1. Digital – Deadline
2. Bad Company – The Nine
3. Three Six Mafia – Sippin on some Syrup
4. Bill Withers – Lovely Day
5. Wu Tang Clan – Uzi

BOKA: Obviously glad to have you release a record on Boka, what else have you got lined up in the future?
SW: I’m working on more of my own dubstep productions for both Boka and New World Audio. There’s a vocal track completed with Doctor, and collabs with Shandy and Nuphlo from Studio Rockers on the go. Also, I’ve completed two dnb tracks that will be out on Hazardous Muzik. Besides that, I’m looking forward to Outlook Festival in September and then I’ll be in India early 2012.

Coming soon – BOKA022 DJ Madd / Akira Kiteshi

Posted in developments, release news with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 17, 2009 by Boka Records

Boka are on a roll, the plan being to have one release a month to round off 2009, lots of treats currently sitting in the BOKA-DJ bag are about to be flung into consumers-ville to the delight of your murky ears….

BOKA022 – DJ Madd – Better With You (Akira Kiteshi Remix) / I Know It’s You

The highly anticipated Akira Kiteshi remix is nearly upon us, being a big fan of the original it was only natural that we asked the jolly Scotsman to jump on remix duties. The results are pretty mind-blowing, proper rave music of the relentless variety…..just wait for the second-drop.

DJ Madd having moved from Budapest, Hungary and now residing in Bristol, UK is about to make some big moves and the track ‘I Know It’s You’ again proves his versatility to the dubstep sound, support on this one has already come from the likes of Rob Da Bank and TRG, expect more wicked beats to emerge from man like Madd soon…..

But lets not get too far ahead of ourselves…..Marlow‘s release is out next week (28th September). Yee!
