Inspired by cinema as well as contemporary club culture, he began making complex, sometimes abrasive tracks during the early 2010s, releasing several EPs and two mixtapes of deconstructed soundtrack music. Later in the decade, he became highly active as a producer, collaborating with label co-founders Shygirl, Coucou Chloe, and Oklou as well as singers and rappers such as Brooke Candy and Zebra Katz. His debut album, Salvador, entirely produced and sung by Bodega himself, appeared in 2020. Salvador Navarrete was born in Galway, Ireland, to Chilean and Irish parents. Raised in Glasgow, he briefly studied at the Royal Conservatory of Scotland, but largely taught himself to produce music using online tutorials. He started creating tracks using the name Peace in 2010, but he settled on Sega Bodega in 2012. He began releasing EPs in 2013, and relocated to London the following year. Reflecting his cinematic influences, he issued a mixtape of reworked movie themes, SS (2015), and started a monthly program on NTS Radio called Sega Bodega's Soundtrack Series. Also in 2015, his EP Sportswear was released by Slugabed's Activia Benz label, in conjunction with a tracksuit designed by Bodega. He collaborated with online collective WWWINGS and Chicago rapper Mikey Dollaz, in addition to forming a project with Coucou Chloe titled Y1640. In 2017, Bristol-based grime label Crazylegs released Sega Bodega's Ess B EP, including the attention-grabbing single "CC" (featuring Shygirl). An additional single for the label, "Nivea," followed later in the year. Bodega also issued a second cinematic mixtape, SS (2017), and co-founded the NUXXE label/collective, producing numerous tracks by his labelmates. A solo EP titled self*care appeared in 2018, signaling a move toward more vocal-heavy tracks. After producing Shygirl's acclaimed 2019 single "BB" and releasing two more solo singles, Bodega issued his first full-length, Salvador, in 2020. The intense, deeply personal album focused on Bodega's struggles with mental health, relationships, and alcoholism. ~ Paul Simpson

Alternatif et Indé - Paru le 14 février 2020 | NUXXE
Repéré depuis quelques années comme un des artistes les plus futuristes de la scène musicale contemporaine, l’Ecossais Sega Bodega a marqué les esprits en 2019 en produisant le BB de Shygirl, un titre de club music mutante porté par un synthé qui faisait remonter les effluves trance des années 90, et surtout avec son implacable et entêtant single Fuck You, inclus sur cet album qui construit de nouveaux ponts entre hip-hop, pop, R&B, bass music et tant d’autres choses. Sega Bodega développe son sens du chemin de traverse et invente de nouvelles formes musicales, comme le R&B cosmique/noisy de Raising Hell, 2 Strong, entre guitares, gros kicks et cliquetis métalliques, ou Salv Goes to Hollywood, son énorme bass kick et sa ligne de kora, mais sans jamais dévier de sa quête de l’émotion, qui se fait parfois plus explicite, sur la ballade Calvin ou le hip-hop emo du fulgurant Smell of the Rubber. Les génies, ça ose tout, et c’est même à ça qu’on les reconnaît. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz
