Bristolian beatmangler Boca 45 and UK turntablist powerhouse DJ Woody make up the crack DJ/production team known as
BocaWoody. Following the success of their 2016 EP 'NW/SW' and instant sell out 7" release, the pair return with a killer debut LP!
Boca 45 aka Scott Hendy earned a mighty rep for his work with Andy Smith as “Dynamo Productions”, alongside
Gee Ealey as Malachai (Domino Records) plus other collaborative projects and his many solo records. Boasting a raft of A List fans
such as Serge from Kasabian and Huey Morgan (BBC 6 Music), Scott DJ'd the opening of Dismal Land for Banksy and took
mainstage at Boardmasters in 2016 for Roots Manuva.
DJ Woody aka Lee Woodvine is a twice World Champion DJ and described as 'The best DJ in the World' by Hudson Mohawke. His
musical approach to turntablism has led to his skills being sought for tours and recordings with the likes of Tim Simenon, Madlib, Oli
Teeba, DJ Vadim and Grammy Award winner Mala Rodriguez. 2016 saw the release of his solo album 'The Point Of Contact', which
received a unanimous 'thumbs up' from fans and the music press. Stand out live performances included showcasing the DMC World
Finals in London and a set for DJCity's MikiDz Show in LA.
BocaWoody bring a fresh take on a classic sound, informed by the pairs common musical roots, it draws on their individual expertise
and shared playful approach. 'Carousel' contains 12 brand new tracks squarely crafted to light up the dancefloor in a spectrum
of colours. Tracks range from heavy funk B-Boy breaks (Freeze, The Knowledge), neck snapping boombap (At It Again, Rap Cats
Taking It Back), sureshot primetime party hip hop (Jump, Rockin' Ya Block, Art Breaker), cut and paste scratch workouts (Carousel,
OneTwoThree, Forget The Rest), turntablised 60's soul (Good Girl) to anthemic disco stomper (Stand Up & Be Counted).
Joining them for 5 of the tracks is Woody's longtime One Self (NinjaTune) and Russian Percussion cohort BluRum13. The New York
born, DC raised and one time Montreal residing MC laces each track to perfection with his unmistakable voice and infectious
rhymes. Also featured on the album is highly respected British keys player Christian Madden of The Earlies, Cherry Ghost and King
