Hobo Camp

M5K - Time 2 Jam (Digital)

M5K returns to Hobo Camp with his brand new EP “Time 2 Jam”, a sonic affair of drum machine hits and synth lines, evoking a vision of a beach-side urban studio apartment blasting out party jams and smooth tunes from sunrise to sunset and beyond. Fusing equal parts classic electro, boogie-funk, house and R’n’B, M5K re-imagines the best of the 80s and 90s urban club scene using all legit studio equipment from the era, making absolutely sure that the vibe is right, the drums hit hard and crispy and the bass is pumping. This EP is a follow up to his 1st release on Hobo Camp, “Absolutely Real” from 2016, and just like all M5K productions, is guaranteed to dominate and destroy on the dance floor. 
“The One For Me” starts the EP off and instantly gets heads-nodding with its snapping drums, g-funk sub bass and west coast lead line. “Eternally” is hypnotic hip-house class, dipped in a liquid gloss with all the rave-y feels to get the folks moving, grooving, gesturing and voguing. “Time 2 Jam” is an homage to classic 80s electro, dominated by legit 808 programming and synth lines that OGs will have to assume is from the era. “City Vue” squeezes out a nice sticky funk paste with each sustained chord, and features Indonesian guest artist Munir (of Midnight Runners) to contribute his style to the jam. “All About U” bounces, bumps, and slices along with a heavy gangster bass lines appropriate for any lowered ride to cruise along and weave through it’s snappy drums . “Wait Up” is a spacey, sultry, slow g-funk electro, the perfect smooth jam to start or end any rendezvous or journey. 
Born out of a necessity to feature the best new music and mixes from artists, DJs, friends and associates, Hobo Camp records started in Los Angeles at the end of 2015 by Randy “Hotthobo” Ellis and Britton Victor. The catalog began by fusing the talents of international artist “Midnight Runners” (Munir from Jakarta, Indonesia), with the vocal talents of Megan Doherty (Social Lovers, Los Angeles). Since then Hobo Camp’s output has been very steady and is influenced by the sounds and texture of classic and obscure dance music from the 70s, 80s and 90s; similarly we produce physical records, tapes, and apparel for those that continue to embrace and promote physical media. Our aim is to feature timeless songwriting, production techniques, and instrumentation from our favorite producers/vocalists, that is not only influenced by our favorite genres, eras, and sights, but also to push forward artists that truly create their own signature sound and unique vibe. Boogie, House, Electro, AOR, Disco, Hip Hop, G-Funk, and Techno are all genres that have a welcome home under the Hobo Camp umbrella.
