“An ever-evolving, funk-laced voyage into a world marked by glowing sonics, impossibly punchy drums, and bass that just can’t seem to stand still”.
That’s what XLR8R had to say about Bobby’s latest cut Learn From You. Check it out yourself, read the full review and then download the track for free, exclusively via XLR8R. Big ups.
Phil Taggart has crowned Undone his Single of the Week.
Bobby Tank’s latest single Undone has been selected by longtime fan at Radio 1, Phil Taggart, as his Single of the Week. Phil Taggart is one half of Radio 1’s Monday – Thursday specialist music show which he co-hosts with the lovely Alice Levine (this week Phil steps into the breach and hosts the show alone). With a choice selection of upfront electronic, underground and rock & indie, the show’s quickly becoming an essential listen for us and for the next four evenings listeners are guaranteed to get the show with a bit of Bobby Tank colour. Tune in from 10pm.
Bobby was Phil and Alice’s guest in the studio back in 2013
It’s been nearly 12 months, but Bobby Tank is back and as upfront as ever with his new single ‘Undone’, released by MofoHifi on May 11th.
Spending this past year holed up in the studio, his time has been spent well – recording and readying a plethora of new music for the year ahead including what will be his debut album as well as working up a live show.
New track Undone – one part of the forthcoming three track EP – is an abstract whirlwind of beats and blimps, glowing neon synths and a mosaic of styles, or as Pitchfork best describe it, “like someone firing a cannon at a rainbow and shattering it into a trillion pieces”.
Check it and love it.. solid BT gold

Zane Lowe: “If you can create a signature sound in a world full of so many people striving to create music and create and be brilliant like Bobby Tank has done then you are onto it…. It has hints of the past all sorts of these great reference points be it Prince or Funkadelic all these amazing signposts, but it is so 100% Future”
Mixmag: “[Bobby Tank is] rising to take his place alongside trailblazing UK artists like Hudson Mohawke, Rustie and Slugabed, who all make phreaked-out future hip hop jams to make your head spin and your feet move. His love of fizzing boom bap, wild funk, cosmic synth rides and soundsystem-slaying bass frequencies come together on ‘The Way’, an explosive and highly imaginative EP that sees him in full flight. It’s only his second proper release, but the signs are clear: Bobby Tank has the power to do damage to a dancefloor near you.”
K Mag: ‘Maximalist synth wizard Bobby Tank returns to MofoHifi with the follow up to his widely acclaimed ‘Afterburn’, ‘The Way’. The six-track EP retains all the characteristics that made ‘Afterburn’ so exciting while showcasing a sharper and more refined sound. Here each nuance and inflection is brought into relief and new shades are revealed. From the future funk shuffle of the title-track to the 80s bombast of ‘Glass Moon’, it sounds like Bobby Tank has now got the reins on his sound and is channelling it brilliantly.’
The Way EP, released via MofoHifi will be coming shortly…
