TVBOO releases his first full-length album Blue Collar Bass: By the People, For the People, out now via WAKAAN. The 15-track LP proudly shows the producer’s comedic personality while also highlighting his fine-tuned artistry. The debut album proves his versatility by infusing an array of styles from hip-hop, trap, bass, and more. A mixture of lively characteristics, melodic and harmonic explorations, and unrelenting bass adorn the LP, with TVBOO demonstrating his production prowess. Blue Collar Bass also displays stellar collaborations with Wreckno and hip-hop artists such as Big Baby Scumbag, CoJaxx, and more. The vast project presents TVBOO in true form; “by the people, for the people.”
“With this album, I felt like I had to prove to myself and to everyone else that I was a serious producer. Most songs I’ve put out have been goofy, funny, and inappropriate. I love that, but I also wanted to show a more serious, mature side of me. I felt like with a full length album I had more freedom to make songs I normally wouldn’t put out as singles or EPs. It was my first time working with singers, musicians, and collaborating with multiple producers for one project. It was a lot of work, but was one of the most rewarding ventures I’ve ever had. This is for the people. This is Blue Collar Bass.”
With the album release, TVBOO continues his debut nationwide headline tour. The Blue Collar Bass tour also features friends and labelmates Ahee and Toadface on select dates, while TVBOO also performs at WAKAAN Music Festival, Freaky Deaky TX, and more TBA.
