After lock down has finally eased and life in the UK has slowly gone back to normal, live shows are coming back and so are we! Having performed @litclapham, Roce40 Records are now due to come back harder and stronger than ever with their brand new concept “BORABORA” dropping on Friday 20th of August 2021.
BoraBora was Produced and Mastered by DJ JOGA. The artists on this Production consists of 5 Afro and Latino Urban artists who were raised and live in different corners of London.
The Artists are as follows left to right: Don Jaga (Chorus – Angola and Portugal), Guala (1st Verse – Ecuador), Jonan (hook and 3rd Verse – Colombia), and P.Man (2nd Verse – Colombia) (Not shown in the above photo) Gotti (Visual Production and Graphic Design – Ecuador) and DJ JOGA (Producer – Colombia)
The chorus, which is the main part that everybody likes to sing, was created by Don Jaga in Just 15 minutes, it was simply meant to be. The beat was actually created in Milton Keynes and recorded at the Roce40 studios in Brixton. Jonan made the hook very interesting and catchy, while P.Man added that Colombian taste that we enjoy. P.Man decided to contact Don Jaga to come to the studio, DJ JOGA asked him if he could make the chorus to the song and he started writing immediately, DJ JOGA then calls Guala and lets him know that Don Jaga was at the Studio, while he could hear the track over the phone, he said “what is that”?, he then told DJ JOGA “I’m on my way now”. He arrived at the studio and heard the song, loved it, started helping the boys to correct some parts, then DJ JOGA asked Guala “are you Jumping on It” to which he replied with a massive grin on his face “of course I’m jumping on it” The rest history.
Inspired by the sounds of Baile Funk and Reggaeton, the track has a real feel of Brazil and the entire Latino Gang Music Movement with a touch of the UK Afro and Latino Culture. Unique Vocals on the Hook and Chorus with great delivery brings great Joy while singing, a different sound never really explored or heard in the UK. The team that came together on this project consists of artists who have set themselves apart and are a breath of fresh air, in the UK Music scene. A bold new statement in the UK Reggaeton Culture.
