Boku Unveiled Debut Single

Having worked extensively all decade with a wide variety of labels and publishers, including Sony, Ultra, Feel Good Lost, Good Soldier Songs, Universal, and Warner, producing music for critically and commercially successful acts such as Talos, Daithí and with Young Wonder, Cork based music producer Ian Ring unveils his debut solo project Boku, with his debut single ‘Rise’, out Friday 16th August,via Soul Jamz Records. 

Introducing Boku, Ian says: “Over the years of producing and writing music for different artists I always found myself moulding my creative mindset to suit the artist and musical realm/genre that they live in.

Boku means “l” and it is music that is personal to me. In essence, I want to create music people can dance too when I DJ but also something that can musically sit on its own outside the world of DJ sets and clubs. The music falls under the electronic umbrella I guess, but I hope my music never really fits into one specific type of genre too comfortably.

‘Rise’ started with a Breakbeat I built, I wanted to create something hypnotic and atmosphere with beats people can dance too, I love that type of contrast. I always try to find something that shouldn’t really work like these slightly detuned synths in rise, I felt it brought a sense of danger and urgency. Music should never sound too clean or perfect in my opinion, it loses character.”

Ian Ring is a Cork-based music producer, who who has just unveiled his debut solo project, Boku, this August.
