Lost but not least! Bobby Magnifique – Be My Number One (Bobby’s Main Pass Mix) (Abicah Soul Records)
“Be My number one!” Incredible as to how many pieces of music seem to appear as shooting stars from a year to another. This despite some undeniable quality in the making and obvious appeal. The reasons for that are quite numerous. From the absence of knowledge, interest and, as a direct result, support of radio promoters. To the saturation of the market leading to too many solicitations at the same time. But also the lack of finances of the structures – most likely indie labels – in the said underground scene. Itself leading to a lack of necessary artist development.
This is pretty much where to find the transient Bobby Magnifique (whoever he is/was, and probably a pseudonym). Be my number one… This would be hos one and only one as a matter of fact. The man disappearing as quickly as he showed up back in 2007 with this uplifting atmospheric jam serving as the ideal environment to a positive message. Meanwhile brilliantly melting deep, jazzy, Latin and African vibes over a percussive rhythm part.
Initially backed with a Brazilian Soul Crew Dub Mix, it would receive soon after additional remixes by the latter and Rafael Moraes. The original remaining a must have along with time though, don’t you think?
