Spotlight: Alex Hobson

In 2021, Alex saw a surge in his popularity when he released his smash hit ‘Good on You’ featuring singer/songwriter and popular Youtuber Talia Mar. The song was a huge success and has been streamed over 8 million times on Spotify, received support from Capital Dance and got played on ‘Love Island’. 

Now, Alex Hobson is ready to recreate that high with the release of his latest single ‘Call Me Out’. Before the success of his original music, Alex Hobson put in the groundwork for his career by releasing remixes of other songs, many of which became very popular on the internet. One of these popular releases was in the form of his bootleg remix of ‘Call Me Out’ by Sarah Close. Sarah put out the original back in 2017 on her own label ‘The Kodiac Club’ and it achieved a great level of success by gaining 8M streams and went to #1 on Spotify’s Viral Charts. After seeing the performance of the original, Alex recreated the track and put his out as a bootleg remix. This track put Alex Hobson on the map as it has now accumulated over 9 million plays on YouTube and over 1 million on SoundCloud. 

Now, 5 years later, Alex Hobson finally gets the clearance for the track and has officially released it. with a fresh, crisp summer groove, this is perfect to get the party going whilst keeping the original tone of the record that got it so popular 5 years ago. 

This summer banger has been released by FFRR/Parlophone Records. FFRR are major players in the scene when it comes to releasing electronic music and have/have had some of the most respected artists release on the label, so to have a release through them is a real seal of approval. The label was founded by dance legend and pioneer Pete Tong and has released music for Storm Queen, Lee James, Eats Everything, Todd Edwards, Carl Cox and many more.

As summer has officially started, now is the best time to put this certified crowd pleaser on your playlist and have everyone ask you “Can you send me that song?”
