Bobby Tank is the new wunderkind of glitchy electrofunk, a producer and performer who makes music that sounds like a mosaic of every great electronic dance style of the past 30 years.
His music is steeped in dubstep and drum’n’bass, the epic pop constructions of Michael Jackson, glossy soul, hi-tech funk, dextrous jazz fusion, even prog.
A self-taught producer, drummer, bassist, guitarist, keyboard player and turntablist, Bobby Tank stumbled across a new kind of future-funk after entering the world of computer music. Over a series of releases he has established himself as a “mad maximalists” akin to Rustie and Hudson Mohawke.
In 2012, Bobby Tank has remixed AlunaGeorge, DJ Fresh, Niki & the Dove, Rudi Zygadlo and Neil Davidge’s Halo 4 OST.
Bobby Tank has DJ’d all over the world with the likes of DJ Fresh, Annie Mac, Skream and Madeon and won the support of the hippest blogs. His single Afterburn achieved over 60 spins between Radio 1 and XFM, helping it achieve hit the top 10 in the iTunes electronic chart. And now he’s moving ever forwards with his music for 2013, with his unique brand of melodic, synth-heavy, pop-conscious future garage.
"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"-- Rolling Stone
