By Ben Goodbye

The early hours of Saturday morning while dancing to Das Glow at Fabric London, Institubes new boy Bobmo landed on me after a failed stage dive. The state I was in I didn’t know what to do when he came flying at me.
This moment is probably my second favourite moment of this year so far. The first being the best sex I’ve ever had a month back, but that’s now for now.

Bobmo is a young producer hailing from the hyperactive city of Paris via the even more hyper city of Bordeaux. While in high school he launched a short-lived rap career, spitting awkward tales of murder and woe. Bordeaux is a pretty cool place and, hanging out with the right crowd, going to the right club, and listening to the right radio show, Bobmo got into Detroit techno, Miami bass, electro and, most importantly, Chicago house. Taking influence from such legendry labels Dancemania and Trax, the result LET'S GO BOBMO! Played by such luminaries as Sinden, Justice, MSTRKRFT, Diplo, Busy P, etc.

With this success he went on re-release the stand-out track "To the Bobmobile". Now he's back with his second 12" “3000% YES”.
"Rock The" speaks a fluent percussive House, "Legally Dead for 4'31" delivers 4 minutes and 31 seconds of jacking electro and "Get ‘Em, Junior" wraps things up on a techno tip. Cheap-sounding synths blossoming into ecstatic fuzziness...You get a lot more than you bargained for.
