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, Irish music producer Ian Ring recently unveiled his debut solo project Boku.
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.“
Speaking about the release of his new single ‘Game’, BOKU says: “ ‘Game’ has a lot of different moments that took me time to carve out and mould together correctly. It started by building a euphoric rave melody with different atmospheres behind it, I wanted it to start somewhere very simple and humble but then build into a place of tension and chaos. I played with a lot of synthesis on this one, it was about developing the sounds as the song progressed.”
