A breath of fresh air for Spanish rap
El Bobe started recording music in primary school, using Audacity and a second-hand microphone he bought online to record his very first songs. 10 years later he’ll take to the stage in his hometown. The young rapper (still just 19) mixes drill - the dark, murky sounds of “Ronaldinho” and “Aventador” - with lighter, afro-influenced productions - his breakthrough hit, the airy, heartfelt “Ella” - and a liquid, silver-tongued flow that spills over syllables and wraps around street metaphors. His set at Sónar 2022 should serve as notice to the Spanish rap scene: El Bobe is here to stay.
