With a history, already stretching back to some his earliest studio times, 'Speed Breaker' marks
the sixth album to take its place in the Russian's estimable long-player archive. From 2004's
'Catchy!' through to last year's '#Uplifting', its supplied the collections of fan's around the world
with a string of evergreen classics.
'Speed Breaker' once again turns the spotlight onto the work of a producer (and DJ) who views
electronic dance music through the widest possible lens. The album brings together a collection
of 15 cuts, comprising of Bobinaâ€™s late-2015 through to â€˜16 catalogue. It moves seamlessly
between towering instrumentals and infectious vocals, each of which carrying the DNA of future anthems.
To work alongside him, Bobina has once again assembled a range of singers and songwriters
that are as talented as they are artistically open-minded. They include the legendary-likes of
JES, established names like Natalie Gioia & Alexandra Badoi, as well as those more newcomer
in nature, May-Britt Scheffer among them. Its Y chromosome is equally well represented, with instudio team-ups from a male vocal contingent that includes Christian Burns, Sir Adrian and Kyle Richardson.
Numbers like the albumâ€™s title track considerably shake up its stylistic system too. â€˜Speed
Breakerâ€™ brings a slow-tempo, more leftfield vibe, with deep bass guitar throb and by virtue an
almost New Order-like edge to the album. Similarly revolutionary is â€˜Addictedâ€™, as Natalie Gioia
exerts a hypnotic vocal hold over Bobinaâ€™s late-2015 artistic earthquake. He backs her catchyas-
you-like song with a reclined tempo, cool timbale-led percussion, tinkling pianos and a
swaying b-line. Such were its plaudits on first release that Dmitry has reteamed with the Russian singer for the album track â€˜My Everythingâ€™ - albeit one far more rafter-blasting in effect.
'Love Is the Answer' with Kyle Richardson plays to Bobinaâ€™s daytime radio strengths; 'iBelieve'
feat. JES has showstopping trance running thick through its veins, while Alexandra Badoi
supplies the album with the searching vocals of 'Dare To Love' - its poignant, affecting closeout.
