Bojan B & Hobin Rude – Apicem [Dopamine White]

7 min read

Opening the new year in style, Nikko.Z's Dopamine White presents a new collaboration from Bojan B and Hobin Rude. Hailing from Serbia, both Bojan and Hobin have achieved measurable success in their respective solo careers. With his first release coming just over a decade ago, Belgrade resident Bojan B has built an impressive resume highlighted by releases via Capital Heaven, ICONYC Noir, One Of A Kind and more. Meanwhile, fellow countryman Hobin Rude first emerged in 2020 with a remix for Jelly For The Babies One Of A Kind imprint. His progressive sounds quickly found favour with the genre's premiere tastemakers Hernan Cattaneo and Nick Warren, eventually leading to releases via Hoomidaas, Plattenbank, The Soundgarden and Sound Avenue. Also an established DJ, the Belgrade resident has the distinction of performing with elite international talents Guy J, Roy Rosenfeld, Tim Green, Volen Sentir and more. Having previously collaborated on projects for AMITABHA and Modern Agenda, Bojan and Hobin combine their extensive forces once again for Dopamine White with 'Apicem', alongside remixes from David Podhel and Jab Vix.

Continuing to build on their creative synergy, Bojan and Hobin craft a timeless slice of progressive house that is 'Apicem'. Warm, punchy grooves anchor the journey while layers of expertly manicured percussion, percolating synth lines and reflective atmospheres add bounce and emotion leading into the break. Advancing further across the interlude, the duo unveils a poignant piano-like lead, elevating mood against a backdrop of shapeshifting textures, eventually peaking with prismatic colours as the groove drops for a thunderous finale.

The first interpretation of 'Apicem' is provided by David Podhel who makes his label debut. Hailing from Mexico, David Podhel first emerged a decade ago with a series of releases for Nicholas Van Orton's BCSA. His timeless progressive sound quickly caught the attention of the genre's diehard fanbase, leading to future projects for Deepwibe Underground, Droid9, Mango Alley and more. Now, continuing what has been a prolific year, David makes his Dopamine White debut with a groovy take on 'Apicem'. Beginning with a buoyant kick and galloping groove, the Mexican artist channels the electric energy of the original through striking chord stabs and percolating synth lines, before a break of warm bass swells and timeless melodica setup a thumping finale.

The release concludes with Jab Vix also making his label debut with the second and final interpretation of 'Apicem'. Hailing from Colombia, Javier Gamero aka Jab Vix first emerged in 2017 with releases via Emergent Shores and Encanta. The next half decade has seen the Cartagena resident refine his style, incorporating Latin percussion and European motifs into his melodic progressive sound. This evolution has seen Javier land key projects on Droid9, Nature Rec and his own Oz Land imprint. Now, following a remix of Kamilo Sanclemente's 'Final Scene', Jab Vix makes his Dopamine White debut with a melodic take on 'Apicem'. Built around a thumping percussive framework, the Colombian artist focuses on rhythm and groove across the first act, nicely balanced with a healthy dose of atmospheric phrasing. Operating primarily as a dub version, a sequence of two second act breaks builds tension through prophetic harmonics and techno minded sensibilities, as modulation peaks for a fiery main room finale.
