Originating from the beautiful and historic Spanish stronghold of Valencia, ‘Jose Bolumar Molina’ alias ‘Bolumar’, has prominently emerged from the city’s increasingly vibrant underground music scene as one of its most cherished musicians.
Complimentary to his natural Spanish elegance and charismatic demeanour, Bolumar brings a very unique and infectious sound; something which truly sets him apart from the rest, the combination of which has ignited his ascension to becoming one of Valencia’s most promising underground tacticians.
Given the dedication and acute application which this Valencian habitually applies to his musical pursuit, it comes as no surprise that Bolumar has now amassed an impressive array of releases, on numerous highly-regarded labels.
2013 saw Bolumar really step-up with his productions, and churn-out some of his most promising musical compositions to date; highlights included featuring on ‘Luna Records Best of 2012 VA‘, alongside some of the year’s top breakthrough artists including Dan Farserelli, Brett Jacobs, and Dzeta N Basile, and a chart topping collaboration with NoVus and LDN Records frontman Scott Kemp.
2014 welcomed further notable releases, with an array of intelligently crafted productions coming on standout labels including NoVus, Act Natural Records, Recycle Records, Metroline Limited and Amam, all of which firmly asserted Bolumar’s creative prowess in the studio.
Whilst the turn of 2015 has welcomed the launch of the Spaniard’s own vinyl imprint Rooted, with fellow Guerilla Agency compatriots Pelle and Roon featuring on the label’s debuting VA, alongside Deep Tech Records boss Duky and a collaboration between Bolumar and Thomas Gandey (Get Physical / Planet E) rounding off the first release.
This year will also see the Rooted boss releasing for the second time with both Act Natural Records and Amam, this time both with a full vinyl EP, as well as featuring on Deep Tech Records commemorative 100th release, as part of a very special vinyl VA.
So it is fair to say, that with Bolumar’s growing resumé of deeply rooted minimal and dub- based house through techno, one can be further reassured of his future potential, which definitely asserts this cerebral Spaniard as an artist to keep close tabs on as the year progresses.
