about

Apiculture is the debut album from Bristol production duo, Boca 45 and DJ Parker.

The album is steeped in the musical history of their city but just as importantly pushes the Bristol sound forward by mixing classic and future dub with electronic music and hip hop.

“Coming from Bristol and being DJ’s you can’t help but be influenced by the old guard of The Wild Bunch, Smith and Mighty, Portishead and Massive Attack but we’re also influenced by the energy of Dubstep coming out of our City too. We’re just fusing it all together in a way that makes sense to us.”

As well as his DJ & production work as Boca 45, Scott is the writer producer behind indie band Diego & The Dissidents (featured in the Banksy Film 'Exit Through the Gift Shop') as well as being the man behind the mixing desk for Malachai (signed to Domino Records and supported by Zane Lowe on his radio show)

Parker completes the core of The Beekeepers. An extremely talented and always in demand DJ who learnt his trade via the battle route - he has been steadily picking up fans since the release of his debut Parker album 'To Eternity'. As The Beekeepers - they have found a common ground in exploring the Bristol sound and have created an album of highs and lows with classic party hip hop like 'Queen Bee' mixed up with downtempo torch songs like 'So Long'. The album is underpinned by a series of epic string laden instrumental tracks on which they worked with talented composer Ben Salisbury.

Vocal tracks come from rapper Mystro and Bristol songstresses Sarah Scott & Hazel Mills.
