Intimate hyperpop confession, but also dance rhythms and heavy absorbing beats.
Experimental Irish producer and versatile artist Sega Bodega arrives at the Prague club Underdogs’ in January. His innovative work mixes elements of trip hop, experimental electronics or UK bass.
On the London scene, Bodega pays for a creator who can connect the influences of all the environments in which he moves. The co-founder of the Nuxxe label, in which he works with Couca Chloe, Okla and the rising star of the hyperpop Shygirl, in recent years, in addition to his solo work, has also tried music production for rapper Brooke Candy and film soundtracks.
The debut album, named after its creator Salvador, was released by Sega Bodega in 2020, seven years after the start of his career. Compared to previous singles or EP self*care, his first album surprised with its introspective theme and openness, which also adapted to music production – hard beats and neurotic rhythms were replaced by a veiled and strongly distorted voice or piano sounds.
“It works great on the record that one can identify with it, but only based on the requirements of Bodega herself: ambition, loneliness and a desire for closeness,” says the Pitchfork server.
The producer will bring his unreleased album Romeo to his Prague premiere on Friday, January 28th, featuring both Arca and Charlotte Gainsbourg.
