Bobby Hanzo, (hip-hop/alternative), live at Minefest, Miners Community Arts and Music Centre, Moston, Manchester, UK, 24/05/2015.
Bobby Hanzo started writing in 2003, the days when Dizzee Rascal was standing up tall to accept his Mercury Music Prize.
Being heavily inspired by, and taking ‘Underground Music’ in literal terms, Bobby started spending time writing to Hip Hop and Grime instrumentals he played loud in a dark and dingy basement. He quickly developed a potent mix of energetic flows and head-scratching metaphors. Realising the route of writing and being a musician was something he was destined for.
He had spells studying music production at Manchester Midi School & Manchester Music Base. He would then go on to be a co-founder of EDM group “EightyNineGeeks”, Who rocked ravers numerous times at venues like DJ Magazines 2010 “Best Club In The World”, Sankey’s Soaps, at a Just Skank event alongside regulars; Compa, Just Jack and cult loving Apes, Black Josh and Truthos Mufasa.
He has had his music featured in the British independent film “Brothers Day” working alongside cousin and fellow musician “Reminiss”.
Bobby Hanzo has recently released his debut EP “Feel Fire Fall Down” on popular streaming networks and it is due to be released on digital stores in the coming weeks. Working along side creative partner and good friend Kai Ohio for the majority of the project, they both started genre bending, mixing EDM elements and Hip Hop drums to develop atmospheric synths that compliment lo-fi drums and angelic, phasing melodies.
Vibrations Magazine had this to say about the title track; “Hanzo raps with an intent to inspire….His lyricism is propelled with a confidence that is intriguing enough for you to listen to more of his debut EP!”.
He is currently working on a new project and is also featuring at the next “Creative Rebellion” event in Manchester.
“Purple Passions”, released 25 February 2015 .
