MORE INFO:

Headlining and following up ace releases on Inner Shift & Hobbes Music, JACKSONVILLE drops an unreleased mix of a killer cut from his FON EP (HM014), which dropped just as lockdown 1.0 scrambled everyone’s circuits in 2020…  The 12″ vinyl EP is a three-track BOMBA of heavy bass, space, broken techno and classic electro vibes.

The new mix has been in demand following his recent Chubby podcast:

Jacksonville has carpet-bombed a number of HM events at the Bongo with his live sets. With a pedigree spanning some 20 years plus via releases for the likes of 2020Vision, Hizou, Doppler, Thug, Plastic City, Leftroom, A.E.R, Shanti and Dan Curtin’s Metamorphic, he has a deep sound and knows exactly how to move the crowd.

LEONIDAS & HOBBES have been making music together for ten years now (and DJing for much longer), getting props across the board – particularly for their last two EPs.

Third EP Rags Of Time EP – featuring lead track Web Of Intrigue (below) – was voted Record Of The Year (2017) by international DJs on Bill Brewster’s DJ History podcasts.  The follow-up,  Aranath, pulled in daytime and evening play on BBC6 music (Mary Anne Hobbs, Lauren Laverne’s Breakfast Show w/Nemone & Gideon Coe), with high praise all round.

Among a slew of other DJ & critical plaudits, the pair has had enthusiastic features from Bandcamp, Electronic Sound, Ban Ban Ton Ton, DJ, Mixmag and Les Yeux Orange (below).  With a debut album now in production, expect ’nuff unreleased exclusives from these two.

Hobbes previously ran Edinburgh’s Trouble nights (Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide ‘Club Of The Year’, Runner Up), playing alongside the great and the good from across the soul/dance spectrum, including: Candi Staton, Marlena Shaw, Daddy G (Massive Attack), Fat Freddys Drop, Lone, Hudson Mohawke/LuckyMe, Eclair Fifi, Horse Meat Disco, Jazzanova, Linkwood, Mim Suleiman, Dego (4Hero), Crazy P and Bugz In The Attic (to name a few).

EXTERIOR released his vinyl debut (EP) on the label, to underground acclaim, in 2019 (check out the lead track below). His debut album is now in production at the plant (due in May) and starting to generate some hype.

With his infectious energy, he is one of the most exciting electronic live acts label boss Hobbes has ever seen.  The live show also features sleeve designer/illustrator/VJ Panos Baras on live visuals.

GAMING‘s debut album came out on vinyl via the label to broad underground acclaim, late ’19.

He’s working on a follow-up and now has a more uptempo dancefloor sound (as witnessed at the club in November).

MAASTRICHT RESEARCH is a new ambient/drone alias from Glasgow/Dublin artists Jonny Hunter, who is also one half of The Three Lives (whose debut EP came out on Glasgow’s Full Dose in December).  The MR album is not out until summer (but already turning heads among those in the know) so for the Bongo, Hunter will bring a more dancefloor-friendly set of UK steppers, roots reggae, dancehall and dub.  Irie.
