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 just 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 at the end. From the absence of knowledge, interest and, as a direct result, support of radio directors. 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’ would be his one and only release 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 enchanting female vocals along with 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?
Besides, quite weird to notice this version is no more available for download on Traxsource…
