Bristol (UK) NativeBoca45 (Scott Hendy) immersed himself in all things Hip Hop from a young age and has been unleashing funky gemstone productions upon the world for years under his various guises. He formed Dynamo Productions with Portishead’s acclaimed resident DJ Andy Smith in the early 00’s & they found a new place musically, fusing the best elements of Hip Hop, funk and beats.
The duo quickly picked up a residency at Fabric live and took their new sound across the globe. Following hot on the heels of Dynamo Productions’ great success, the debut Boca45LpPitch Sounds(2004) was delivered on Manchester’s Grand Central records to huge acclaim.
Boca went on to record another2full LPS Vertigo Sounds(2006) & Dig Eat Beats Repeat(2015) Collaboration has always been an important factor of Boca’s DNA and along the way further Collaborative projects continued to develop “The Bee Keepers”(with Parker) on Jalapeno Records, “BocaWoody”(with2time world champion DJ Woody), “Malachai”(with singer Gee) on Domino Records-which was named Zane Lowes hottest record of the week & gained HUGE critical acclaim across their3LPs.There was also a string of vocal collaborations including with"The Heavy" (Ninja Tunes)lead singer Kelvin Swaby. Boca45 is also obviously a DJ of some renown having taken to the stage across the world's clubs and festivals.
Banksy personally requested him to Dj at the opening party for Dismal Landin2015and he can also include Serge from Kasabian, Geoff Barrow (Portishead),Huey Morgan & Craig Charles at BBC Radio6as part of his large group of fans. “Bombs From The Vaults ”was released late in2017viaBomb Strikes. An Anthology of all things Boca spanning the many years he has been delivering the musical goods!
The compilation was packed with classics, forgotten gems and also some new exclusive music in the form of the amazing ‘Hand Of God’ and ‘The Bear Pit’(a Collaboration with Bristol Funk outfit-Mohawkestra) which is named after an underpass in Scott’s native Bristol where men would fight with Bears as a form of entertainment! The LP was #1in the Juno sales chart. Scott Boca also heads up the hugely successful45Livemovement with partner Pete Isaac which consolidates a crew of 45 Vinyl slingers such as DJ Format, DJ Food (Ninja), John More (Coldcut) & many more to host club nights & festival areas all over the Globe (Board masters, Masked Ball etc) where only45RPM singles are played. Onto 2018 and Boca is showing no signs of slowing down, none whatsoever!
This year he’s releasing his Bocas Club Donuts series which is a7’’/45vinyl single every other month aimed squarely at the the Dance floor. BCD01 was released in Feb this year & quickly disappeared in under a week. They sold like HOT Donuts (excuse the pun)! It also had countless plays on Radio Worldwide including BBC Radio6where“Fat Back Boys ”was made single of the week..
