Nowadays getting the nod from Diplo is like getting an electric touch from the DJ gods. Bosco Delrey, the lo-fi hi-buzz electronic artist, got just that when Diplo signed him to his label Mad Decent. Diplo’s description of Bosco’s music is the best out there: “[Bosco is] a sort of garbage can Elvis from New Jersey…teaspoon craziness, a pinch of rockabilly, and full cup of soul dressed in a leather jacket. He can’t be topped as far as song writing… he’s doin’ the music I wish I could if I had bought a guitar.”
Bosco Delrey recently finished recording his debut on Mad Decent called Everybody Wah and embodies that raucous electro-wreck Diplo described above. Working with Doug, Easley Bosco combined his love for old school country with a dancehall beat and somehow through black magic made it all sound fresh. It’s a product of living and working in Memphis while carrying a torch for the psychedelic and fuzzed-out. His strange sound in studio also nabbed the attention of the Beastie Boys’ Mike D and Ad Rock, who have vowed to offer fans remixes in 2011.
Everybody Wah is due out on Mad Decent/Downtown Music in early 2011. Bosco Delrey is closing up his stint with Magic Kids this week. Catch him before he blows up. Take a listen to his single “My My Racecar” below and download it for free via RCRD LBL.
