Dig, eat, beats, repeat – four words that sum up the life of Boca 45. Known as somewhat of a Bristol institution from his early days selling hip hop from behind the counter of the seminal purple penguin record shop. With so many releases over the years on labels such as Island, Domino, Grand Central Illicit, Jalapeno, Unique and Jack to Phono, under a slew of aliases, it’s sometimes tricky to pin the man down. As he says himself, the best way to soak up the Boca 45 experience is to catch one of his blistering live DJ sets.
