‘Bob Ross’ is a cross-genre,all-Irish collaboration between Cork artist Darce and acclaimed Dublin producer Will De Burca. The track transports the listener back 1970’s west coast America, albeit the illusionary version that is portrayed on TV. The song’s booming beat catches the listener from the outset while the lyrics tell the story of a night defined by discos and afros, while retaining it’s Irish roots. Where else would you hear a verse that starts with “Young Ronnie Drew”.
