Bok Bok

Ableton Tutor

Bok Bok is Alex Sushon – DJ, producer, & co-founder & exec of cult London label Night Slugs.

Moving from Ukraine to South London in ’92, Bok discovered music via the jungle & garage that saturated their new environment. A hunger for raw club sounds soon drew Bok beyond Grime to other, highly compatible music from Chicago, Baltimore, Jersey, Detroit and Durban – a combined blend of international club music, with a London-soundsystem mentality at its core.

Picking up Ableton was the next step and soon a new sound was starting to take shape via bootlegs, remixes and original productions by Bok as well as other likeminded friends like Girl Unit, Jam City, Kingdom, Ikonika, Egyptrixx and L-Vis 1990.

A decade+ later Night Slugs has changed the landscape of music, reconfiguring club music and seeping ideas into the mainstream.  In 2013 Bok first worked with Kelela, producing 2 tracks for her debut project “Cut 4 Me”, and later dropping the minimal, funky collaboration “Melba’s Call” on NS. 

Since 2018 Bok became an engineer for hire, bringing a signature ‘realistic’ Night Slugs treatment to a wide variety of music. Currently Bok continues to DJ globally as well as produce, remix, engineer and release records on Night Slugs – and new label AP Life – while maintaining their long-standing residency on London’s Rinse FM.
