Boddhi knows how to keep one foot on the mainstream and the other on the dance floor. Furthermore, he is known widely as a protégé to Grammy winning Lil Louie Vega (Masters at Work), who was on board as the Executive Producer of Boddhi’s album Invocation, released in 2012. The BBE-release debut was celebrated all over the world by many, including the global tastemaker Gilles Peterson. Boddhi has been traveling to all four corners of the world. From open air festivals, to the most renown underground venues, including residencies in Europe, North America, & Asia. Between hit releases with Nigerian pop star Davido on Naughty and UK’s Legendary soul man Omar Lyefook MBE on Benefit, Boddhi keeps expanding his repertoire with his wide global reach.
