Benjamin Woods aka Bosq has been tirelessly exploring the intersections of Afro-Latin music with Disco, Funk, Reggae, House and Hip-Hop for years. Latest releases Celestial Strut (2015) and Love & Resistance (2018), both on Ubiquity, have received massive plaudits from the largest selectors, critics and DJs in the dance music scene.

Furthermore, Mixmag rated his latest single “Can’t Seem to Hide” a perfect 10/10 and awarded it tune of the month heralding the song as a "bona fide classic" with "relentless groove".
Bosq's latest endeavour sees him producing gospel & jazz infused disco & house alongside The Rapture's co-founder and drummer Vito Roccoforte. Together the duo form Body Music; a project that has seen consistent plays from Gilles Peterson & Craig Charles on the BBC, KCRW, RinseFM & countless others.
