    2015年與Swenyn Jupiter 聯手合作的單曲 “Papaya Lipgloss”,延續上一張的美學,更添浪漫的風格,獲得廣大支持。而Bok Bok也在今年回歸帶來了全新的EP “Salvage”。


    BOK BOK (Night Slugs/ UK)

    Bok Bok aka Alex Sushon is a London based DJ, producer and director of the incendiary Night Slugs record label.
    DJing since 2004, Sushon started to make his name on London's underground scene around the time Grime music was first emerging from the capitol's tower blocks. The unique inventiveness and raw energy of that music has remained with Sushon ever since those early days, as he discovered the wider world of club music, seeing many parallels between the homegrown music of London and House music from Chicago to South Africa, Techno, Baltimore/Jersey/Philly Club, 80s funk and a myriad other music styles across many eras.
    This pan-genre, time-irreverent mentality was the foundation of the Night Slugs movement. In 2008 Sushon would join forces with like-minded producer and DJ L-Vis 1990 to form Night Slugs (NS), initially a club night in South London. From day 1 the ethos was fiercely open-minded and DIY, as Bok and L-Vis dedicated themselves to club music. Through the events series and their DJ sets around the UK and Europe, the duo cultivated a unique sound, cross-pollinating ideas from their various influences until a distinct community of producers crystallised around them.
    In 2010 Night Slugs re-launched as a record label. Since then NS has been a non-stop source of ambitious, cutting-edge music for the club, launching the careers of artists such as Mosca, Jam City and Girl Unit and providing a context-rich platform for like-minded producers such as Kingdom, Egyptrixx and Lil Silva. The label's sound may be diverse but it's FEEL is distinctive, injecting the crews diverse influences back into the UK soundsystem heritage that inspired Sushon way back in his early days as a Grime DJ and FWD>> raver. In the process, Night Slugs has become a truly cult label, with a reputation for quality and innovation rivalled by few others and with a fan base as globally spread as Bok and L-Vis' inspirations.
    In May 2011, Bok Bok released the ‘Southside’ EP on Nightslugs. The EP featured 5 instrumental tracks, including the break out club track ‘Silo Pass’ and in October 2013 his productions featured on the mixtape ‘Cut 4 Me’ released by sister LA label Fade To Mind with vocalist Kelela.
    Bok Bok collaborated with Dutch producer Tom Trago on the Night Voyage Tool Kit EP released by Sound Pellegrino in 2011 and more recently the duo have founded the label Night Voyage to put out their collaborations. 'Get Me Want You Want' was released in Dec 2013 and the latest instalment 'Pussy Track / Silent G Safari' was released in January 2014.
    In May 2014 Bok Bok released his first solo material in 3 years in the form of the ‘Your Charizmatic Self’ EP. The lead single ‘Melba’s Call’ featured Kelela and a ground breaking video born out of Night Slugs unique aesthetic.
    He has toured extensively in the US, Australia, Asia and Europe – this year celebrating Night Slugs’ 6th Birthday with events in London, Paris, New York, Barcelona, LA and Tokyo.
