Mix & 10 Things About... Bosq
We've featured Medellín-based producer & DJ, Bosq once before. With his sound rooted in Disco & Funk heavily influenced by classic Afro-Latin music, his vibe is basically everything we're about here at Acuña. With a new EP out on Friday ft Pat Kalla and we thought it was a good opportunity to dive a little deeper...
Bosq & Pat Kalla have been traveling parallel paths from across the Atlantic ocean without ever intersecting for too long. They have both been deeply involved in the modern / retro Afro Disco scenes in their respective countries but it wasn’t until the legendary French producer & label head GUTS asked Bosq to remix Pat Kalla & Le Super Mojo “Canette” that they met musically. That remix was received so well by the public as well as the artists themselves that they decided to work on an original track together.
Anyway let's get into it, here's 10 Things About Bosq, a brand new mix he's put together for us and a linkto the new EP…
