To understand Bobby Hustle, you’ll have to understand the origins of this Seattle, Washington native. Bringing reggae to a city known for Hendrix, Nirvana and the grunge alike, Bobby reminds the masses that Seattle has room for reggae. Representing Seattle and its own islands with the support of Dynasty Records, Bobby Hustle invites you to his...well, his hustle.
Growing up on Bainbridge Island, just west of Seattle, Bobby was inspired by a diverse range of reggae artists such as Garnet Silk, Cocoa Tea, Beres Hammond, Lutan Fyah, Taurus Riley, Beenie Man, Bounty Killer and Vybz Kartel. Bobby stays true to the message of the island life and combines it with the current dancehall culture that holds its own in the Pacific Northwest.
Through Dynasty Records, Bobby Hustle has released songs getting strong play in the dancehall as well as on radio airwaves the world over. On the Alive riddim released in April 2011 is "On The Run" and on GT Taylor’s Steady Flow riddim his "Search For It" is enjoying great rotation in Jamaica. On the summer 2011 Party Town riddim he has released "Tun It Up", which is currently on the Hot ‘n’ Fresh Top 15 chart in Holland.
Aside from his work with Dynasty Records, he has recorded songs for Delly Ranx’s Pure Music label, Bread Back Productions, ZJ Sparks and the aforementioned GT Taylor of IRIE FM. His performance style on stage is full of energy and he creates a mood that gets the fans involved. Performances have included a 2011 West Coast tour of the U.S. with Jamaica's Konshens as well as work regionally on festivals and as an opening for artists like Gappy Ranks, Serani, Mr. Vegas, Lutan Fyah, Perfect, Delly Ranx, Turbulence, etc.
Bobby Hustle's 2011 mixtape CD release, GO HARDER features a collection of 21 songs that can compete with any of the "hardest" sets on the street. His music fits in with the overall mission of the Dynasty Records crew, to bring modern reggae to a wider audience of listeners and in so doing build the "dynasty" for reggae worldwide. Considered an up-and-coming talent, the support and engineering expertise of Dynasty Records allows Bobby to be a total artist. His knack for writing strong hooks and flowing on the latest trends in modern reggae are clear signs that this in artist whose time to shine is here.
