Bobsan – 40×20
The first album by architect, DJ and electronic music producer Bobsan named 40X20 – read forty times twenty – was released right now, as slovak alternative music Radio_FM reports. The title, as Bobsan explains, represents his age and the number of years he devoted to composing electronic dance music. The album is released digitally on all streaming platforms and at the same time completely free on soundcloud.
On 40X20 you will listen to 9 songs, which are an eclectic multi-genre collection of singles. There are no fillers, and they are organized so that they are pleasant to listen to. Some of the songs are already released as singles – such as ì… tudo nosso,î which was released on Gergaz’s Beatgarden 7 compilation, or ìRinccaliî, which is quite a Shazamed track, according to Bobsan’s sources.
Back to the music: Bobsan’s album is hard put a genre on, for the general listener it is an alternative electronic dance music. For those more educated, it is an eclectic mix of housemusic, postdubstep, future bass, wonky, reggaeton and chillout music. Somewhere between the dance floor and nice listening music. The cherry on the cake is the last song, which is a remix of 80’s slovak sythpop classic of Tlakov· NÌû (pressure is low) by Richard M¸ller, which agreed to release it. This remix is only available on soudcloud: (soundcloud.com/bobsan) and bandcamp (bobsan.bandcamp.com/album/40×20)
