Hackney resident BobaFatt has been active in the music industry since the early '90s. His mixes, radio shows and club sets have seen him receive nods & acclaim from Mixcloud, Fact Magazine and BBC 1Xtra. He has a weekly show on London Hip Hop station Itch FM, is a resident DJ for Soundcrash and is 50% of DJ duo, Main Squeeze.
Presently residing at Rough Trade, Boba used to run a small indie record shop in Bath a decade ago, which is where the bulk of the Sin Happy sessions took place of an evening, over burgers, banter and an occasional beer.
This album is comprised of ten tracks crafted during those sessions.
Ten years on, this is the first time these tracks have been released.
