Colombia-born, Florida-based hip-hop artist BOGART is rapidly surpassing his ‘emerging’ status and well on his way to becoming a breakthrough act. Utilizing a timeless, syllable-blending flow, he channels a myriad of icons through his poised and finely executed lyricism. His forthcoming debut album Night In Mind is a showcase for his bold and complex lyricism, a conceptual release that explores themes of temptation, apathy and self-destructive behavior, with each song representing a different hour of the night.
With Latin-American acts maintaining a new and dominant presence over worldwide charts, BOGART is keen to work against trends, making music that’s honest and true to him, turning heads and catching ears in the process. Recent release PSOI was featured on the coveted ‘Beast Mode’ playlist curated by Spotify, which has an audience of 4 million followers and is the 13th largest playlist on the service. He’s also been featured on a plethora of high impact playlists, including various ‘New Music Friday’ playlists across Latin America.
Releasing August 17th, as the quote outlines below, float is an ode to the positive impact of music and its ability to empower and alter one’s state of mind. With an aesthetic that combines the poetic imagery of 90s rap with contemporary sounds and production techniques, BOGART applies a fluid, engaging, Kid Cudi-esque narrative that leaves you hanging off every word. On the motivation behind float, BOGART shares: “float is a song about using music to escape the mundaneness of your day-to-day reality. It’s a testament to how art can lift people up above their surroundings and give them a glimpse of a higher calling they can then strive towards fulfilling.”
