about

"If you have heard the previous full-length Bocuma album Summer Pylon, you at least have an idea what to expect with Protect & Survive. Bocuma produces music filled with colourful reversed synth washes, hip-hop flavoured beats, and downright creepy sampling of vocals (particularly children) and sounds from nature. Bocuma fits somewhere into the Intelligent Dance Music (IDM) sub-genre of electronica, but it's impossible to nail them down into anything but their very own category.

Protect & Survive is a multi textured sonic masterpiece. From the opening discordant melody of 'Protect & Survive (intro),' you know that the band are about to take you on a strange and wonderful journey. All of the elements that made Summer Pylon so special are present on Protect & Survive, oscillating synths from old documentaries, textures so deep and mysterious you could swim in them, tiny intricate sounds that only reveal themself on the 17th or 32nd listen, all tacked on to hazy, scratchy beats. In a word, magic!!!

'Different Me Different You’ features a shuffling beat, recorded loops, and multiplying synthesizers which culminate in a child's voice. The context of this sample makes one's skin crawl. It is utterly weird, yet tuneful and, somehow (after a few listens), accessible.

Other reviewers have noted other standout tracks, such as 'Global Spark', 'Clear Head', 'Bit Addict', 'Active Spite.'

Dark and provocative. This brings me to my last point. Protect & Survive is not the album you'll burn for everyone of your friends or throw on at a party. Chances are only a couple of your friends can really appreciate music like this. I personally like to listen to the album alone or in a car on a long drive. This music is strange, dark, powerful, hypnotic, beautiful, and, at times, disturbing." - From Soundcloud
