Bobby Tank, a fast rising star on the dubstep scene, quietly emerged from the ether a little over a year ago. He is now evolving the genre as a face of the post-dubstep movement. His music, an aggressive mix of grooving 80’s funk and glitch heavy beats, escapes simple definition. Tank, a Harrow boy, has perhaps described his music best, likening it to, “Rick James riding a flying unicorn along Orion’s belt whilst smoking a crack pipe.” His greatest inspiration is Michael Jackson, whose dance moves he sought to imitate when he was 5. He firmly believes music’s greatest era was the 80’s.
Hell yeah, keep an ear out for a guest mix from Bobby Tank in the very near future, and check out more glitched out 80s funk loveliness here:
