We premiere the video for BMB Spacekid, aka Dmitry Semenov’s funk-laced feel-good rare-groove anthem, ‘Cuba’
If we told you that BMB Spacekid, aka Dmitry Semenov, hails from the coldest depths of St. Petersburg, Russia (which he does) the sound you would expect him to produce is sure to be far, far from what you are about to hear. His music is the polar opposite of his origin in fact. At the age of twenty-six, Semenov produces P-funk-laced feel-good sounds worthy of a love train in a groove-all-night Cali club.
Citing rare groove influences, his work offers a harmonious combination of astral landscapes, it’s as if he recorded his material on the West Coast a good two years ago. To date, he’s toured Russia and Europe extensively, shared stage with everyone from HudMo and Ras G through to MF Doom and Wu Tang and is set to put out his first UK release, the Cuba EP, this November 10th on vinyl via brand-new label The Full Hundred.
He’s no stranger to the industry, having previously participated in Red Bull’s prestigious Bass Camp, he has also taught at the Goethe-Institut in Hamburg as part of their Hip Hop Academy – for BMB, quality and precision ensure results.
Step ten seconds into the video for ‘Cuba’ and you’re immersed in the West Coast US hip-hop culture that BMB Spacekid thrives on. This Russian prodigy is going to be around for a while.
