Tobrock on Bandcamp
Tobrock is the latest talent emerging from the bubbling Cologne beatmaker scene and we are proud to announce his first official 7? on MPM - pressed on kryptonite green vinyl and limited to 500 copies.
Only in his early 20ties, Tobrock has been making some noise for a while now. He first came up under the UpMyAlley crew and is one half of R/O/C/K/A/F/E/L/L/A, together with MPM?s Fella Vaughn (who also designed the label here). He has been featured on the ?Puzzles? comp, laced a chopped and screwed remix for Fracture (Sepalot & Frank Nitt) and created a little YouTube frenzy with his Big Baby Jesus duett ?Love Me?.
Tobrock?s music is a far cry from the neo-boom bap, that some people associate Cologne with. Tobrock got a bag of his own: wobbly b-lines meet incredible strange beats and even weirder synth riffs. His current playlist consists of jazz, g-funk and dubstep. Influences that can be traced down to the futuristic arcade funk of ?Forrest Gump? as well as to the drug-infested ?Mon?y? on the flipside.
