Two years ago, with 'Rocket Ride', his third artist album, electronic music cosmonaut Bobina shot his sound space-boundâ€¦ Now, in the year 2013, the Russian Grand Master returns to deliver what he terms "a continuation album" and "a sequel in all but name". Drawing on a spacious range of influences, styles and inspirations - both pre-and-post millennial - 'Same Difference' beams its epic sonics out from the heavens. With a dance planet firmly in its crosshairs, and an accomplished vocal and co-production crew on board (Susana, Betsie Larkin, Ana Criado and Andrew Rayel among them), Bobina's pan-galactic, retro-futuristic EDMission continuesâ€¦
Intergalacticâ€¦. 'Same Difference's journey begins in a sea of trance tranquillity with its title track. Casting a knowing, timely glance in the direction of Isla Baleares, its subtly thrummed 70s uitarism twinned with its Med-trance wrap, cede to a once-heard/never-forgotten drop. Throwing the album into warp-drive, 'Sacramentum' finds Bobina studio-side with Moldova's Andew Rayel. A euphoric Ying to the harmonic Yang of 'Rocket Ride' fan-fave 'Lamento Sentimental', its pianoforte symphonica, choral vocal midsection and ebullient conclusion set the album ablaze.
