Robaco Bossa, winner of Defected’s Best Producer Competition, is a twenty-two year old DJ/Producer from Amersfoort, Holland. Robaco’s love for music started at the early age of 11 as a drummer, however, having discovered house music in his teens, the young man started to combine and create his own beats with other instruments. Robaco’s early DJ sets saw him mix up deep, progressive, tech and minimal house, stirred up with a lot of groovy and funky elements. He got the recognition he deserved when he was chosen to perform at some major clubs in The Netherlands..
Things got even better for Robaco in the beginning of 2009 when he got his first record deal, with his first release ‘Bounce It Up’ appearing on Roger Sanchez’s ‘Release Yourself’ radio show, and subsequently a worldwide audience. His next releases followed suit and his sounds were receiving support from established names in the international dance scene such as Roger Sanchez, The Shapeshifters, Chocolate Puma, David Penn, Laidback Luke, Housequake (DJ Roog & Erick E), DJ Chuckie, Baggi Begovic, Gregor Salto and Youri Donatz to name a few..
Along with his successful Defected track ‘Black Bird’, he has also won a DJ competition in the area of Utrecht (Netherlands) and conquered a residency at the SLAM!Cafe, hosted by the famous dutch radio station SLAM!FM. He did remix work for Chocolate Puma’s (Zki & Dobre) imprint ‘Pssst Music Recordings’ and other major releases by Baggi Begovic & Groovenatics, Youri Donatz, Josh The Funky1 , Dreamcity and Dos Palomas Negras, which gave him an internationally recognized name in the dance scene.
A new album and several remixes are just a small part of all future plans by Robaco. His own label ‘Bossa Records’ will become reality in 2011 and some other big projects will be announced in the near future.
It is a sure bet that the name Robaco Bossa will continue to grow.
