[Boddika a.k.a. Al Green]
I recently learned that Boddika took his name from the bad guy in Robocop – ‘Clarence Boddiker’. Given that his music is downright sinister and colder than ice, it is appropriate that Boddika has appropriated the name of a villain.
“My influences are mainly old school electro beats from hip hop and then Detroit electro producers such as Drexciya and Aux88. But I’ve always had a keen interest in Chicago House and Detroit Techno, as well as 90′s & 80′s Dance and Electronica, like AFX, Autechre, Lisa Lisa Cult Jam, Prince. Pretty much everything I like inspires me; as a whole I just do what I feel like doing when I’m in the studio, and that’s where the music comes from. Working alone has been very inspiring for me.”
