TUNE Method Music - Bobby Tank - The Way
Bobby Tank is the new wunderkind of glitchy electrofunk, a producer and performer who makes music that sounds like a mosaic of every great electronic dance style of the past 30 years.
On his new EP ‘The Way’ – due for release on February 25th through MofoHifi – Bobby blends dubstep, garage and trap music with a cacophony of samples and sounds resulting in 6 tracks of sublime electronic music.
Bobby grew up in London and whilst teaching himself how to become a turntablist and scratch DJ, he stumbled across a new kind of future-funk. Over a series of releases this year, he has established himself as a “mad maximalist” to rival Rustie and Hudson Mohawke.
Having DJ’d all over the world with the likes of Annie Mac, Skream, Justice and Madeon, Bobby Tank won the support of the bloggers as well as national radio on last single ‘Afterburn’ - Radio 1 and XFM spun it over 60 times between them and it made the iTunes Top 10.
With remixes under his belt for Niki and the Dove, DJ Fresh, AlunaGeorge and Rudi Zygadlo already, 2013 will no doubt see Bobby captivate even more of his peers, the tastemakers and the public with ‘The Way’ EP.
