Bondi Beach Breakfast has been hosted by Boston Rodriguez since launch in Nov 2015, and has since amalgamated into a team of 20+ talented, specialist or simply outrageous individuals… alongside in-house producers & audio editors… contributing sports coaches & porn industry workers. Supplying content from zero-carb recipes, live meditations & in studio work-outs, to countless industry-insider-interviews, TV show roastings & road-testing breast implants live-on-air!
BBB suffers a severe allergy towards music genre definitions. Playing high quality music, old & new, fast or slow.
1st hour consists of Boston's personal record collection… funk, boogie, disco, jazz-dance, brazilian, cuban, reggae/dub, soul, etc
2nd hour playing music related to all shows across the station throughout the day ahead… house/techno, d&b, jungle/dancehall, rock, hip hop, punk, experimental, world music, etc
Touching base with many of the music shows live-on-air each week, via telephone interview, guest-mixes or in-studio live performances, BBB also features & supports all the less-music-more-content based shows across the station.
ie : travel (Wanderlust), arts&culture (StreetArts), health & wellbeing (ManifestingDestiny), comedy (The Fence), social / political infrastructure (THEQSE), and many more.
Whether writing/presenting nationwide radio music documentaries in NEW ZEALAND, winging it as an art auctioneer in JAMAICA, resident DJ for exotic lap-dancing chain in his native homeland LONDON, writing chapters for F1 world champion LEWIS HAMILTON’s biography or composing soundtrack to BAFTA winning short film about respecting life, Boston Rodriguez’ lifestyle choices point towards a distinct allergy to comfort zones.
Having banked airplay for 15+ years, under his various production aliases/guises, from a host of streetwise BBC Radio genre-specialists, such as taste-makers; GILLES PETERSON (Radio1/6Music), BENJI B (Radio1/1Xtra), CRAIG CHARLES (6Music Funk & Soul & Radio2), AARON ROSS (1Xtra) and PAUL THOMAS (Radio1), Boston Rodriguez is a music-maker that claims no other options left but to challenge creative expectation. As a compulsion to try everything once, has “effectively rendered me
‘a jack of no trades, and a master of none’. In other words, unqualified and unemployable!”
Scoring a debut release through LTJ BUKEM’s seminal GOOD LOOKING RECORDS, debut remix for Defected Record’s DJ AARON ROSS, and debut album showcased on BBCRadio1’s ONE WORLD, Rodriguez was schooled in “defying contrived music industry convention” whilst working day jobs at particular trend-setting, but now defunct legacies of underground music culture.
Getting weekly pay-slips from Drum&Bass pioneers ‘MOVING SHADOW RECORDS’, the mecca of the broken beat scene ‘GOYAMUSIC/PEOPLE RECORDS’ and by proxy, Gilles Peterson’s awarded BBC Radio1 Worldwide Club of the Year: CO-OP, Boston cites the above as “the best schools in the world, teaching the best subjects in the world”.
In the meantime, alongside a 6 month sabbatical to conquer the entire mega-environment of GTA’s San Andreas and a spiralling addiction to collecting worldwide native percussion, Rodriguez has produced or remixed artists/bands from across the planet. Including:
Brazil, Jamaica, Senegal, Ghana, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Chile, Argentina, Australia, Pakistan, Samoa, S Africa, UK, NZ, Czech Rep, Poland, France, Italy & UAE.
His music can be heard across TV & Film, from BRAZIL SOCCER TEAM idents during WORLD CUP soccer coverage to DVD trailers for director DANNY BOYLE feature films.
From the NEW YORK CITY CANNABIS FILM FESTIVAL to the market leader for topless darts and white trash UK TV, Men & Motors. And his house party DJ sets have spanned the globe, from The Notting Hill Carnival down to Bondi Beach’s Pavilion.
