Bosko – Bombay & Passin Time

Bosko - Bombay & Passin Time

In the nineties everyone wanted to be from the west coast the sunshine and palm trees portrayed in music videos made it look like a different kind of paradise. The upper west now more often recognized as the northwest drew instrumental influence from these artists. During this time a label was trying to take the thought of good music plus good business to put their own city Portland on the map when Cool Nutz and Bosko founded Jus Family Records. While the label had its share of releases in the early nineties things did not really pick up until the mid to late nineties when the label signed some of the better local talent and released several albums plus compilations. Bosko at the time was kind of the in house producer for the label but also was starting to get a buzz with his production outside the label. Round 1995 Bosko released a single for a new sound he was creating called “Bombay” and even garnered a deal with Big Beat Records who had been responsible for the success of quite a few artists over they years. While always recognized for  his production Bosko has always been that multi-threat from rapper, writer, producer, and go to for some of the best talk-box work. Though the full album never materialized his success has never halted. Bosko has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry and still continues to do so giving the Northwest a figure to look up to.
