Bobby Bovell dropped another killer single, ‘Nightwatch’ with a Kriswontwo remix earlier today. Once again it’s a tune. Bovell and Kriswontwo are a natural fit and both artists are flexing the best of musical form. The soul is turned up to 11 and the syncopated funk is dark and swinging while the whole thing oozes an infectiously natural balance and charm. We are giving first peek to the new video here. It was shot in one take at the Mill Factory Studios in Copenhagen and shows Bobby in full effect with his band Public Secret.
It’s another enticing taste of new material from Bobby Bovell. One of the highlights of last year was his magic single ‘Love Love‘ a first collaboration with his father, dub and reggae legend Dennis Bovell. It also sported a heavy Kriswontwo remix and the video had a run of popularity recently winning 3 awards at the JUMP MUSIC Video Awards and whetting the appetite for a new album from Bobby. His debut album ‘The Emergent EclecKtic’ earned him a MOBO nomination back then but these days its all about the new stuff coming through. If you can’t wait catch them live tonight. That is if you are in London tonight, it’s Bobby’s birthday and single launch party and apart from the live show he has invited DJ Femi Fem along to play some tunes too.
