The Bombstrikes label are celebrating their 10th year in the game this year and are continuing the party over at Juno Download. For a very limited time you can grab all kinds of goodies for free and hugely discounted.
Bombstrikes have worked very hard for it but can easily be described as THE best label for funky, mid tempo bass music around. Starting things off way back in 2004 with Beat Vandals classic mashup ep Volume 1, things really kicked off for the label with Mooqee’s Volume 2 and the DJ Shadow sampling “Funk Machine Man”
This track was picked up by every turntablist, DJ, music nut on the planet and was hammered by the likes of Mixmaster Mike, Krafty Kuts, A Skillz and many, many more.
After that the labels place was pretty much cemented with more and more fans getting involved with every release. After several tracks and ep’s from the label owners they started to draft in the very best artists around to release banger after banger. Tracks from A Skillz, Nick Thayer, Featurecast, Qdup Foundation and Ali B spread that funky goodness afar and then looking to the future they signed up more talent with Pimpsoul, Bryx, Herbgrinder, Neon Steve and more joining the camp to fully nail their place as the best.
This week you can grab a special VIP of Mooqee & Herbgrinder’s “Sound Around Town” from Juno for free and whilst doing so be entered into a special competition to win the entire Bombstrikes back catalogue. That’s a lot of dancefloor ammunition right there. Click on the player below.
Also whilst you’re there you can pick up two specially reduced bundles from the label. First off “Party Classics”
And secondly “Future Bombs”
Just in case some of the awesome sounds had slipped your mind then check out the killer, 10 years in 10 minutes mix Mooqee and Beat Vandals put together earlier in the year.

Who says Speed Garage is dead/ I bet you still love those big phat basslines and rolling 4×4 kicks with amen breaks inter sped and jungle style FX, well a 100 strong collective of DJs and producers have been working hard via a facebook group reviving and reinventing the sound of speed garage culminating in Urban Sprawl, a label set up Gavin Dista bringing back the sound of 98 and believe me, they have some gems in store and this is one of them, Matt Craig’s ‘Filthy Bootz’ is a 4 track EP of fresh Speed Garage, tunes like the Gunman style ‘Bacon Fries’, huge warp bass and the piano from ‘Sweet Harmony’, a reworking of N Joi’s ‘Anthem’ that will get the old skool heads (Like us!) going start raving!!! Theres a reworking of A.S.H.A’s ‘J.J Tribute injecting a lethal dose of bass into the equation to scopp you up off the floor after you have melted as a result of that piano and a VIP to boot, this is essential for your collection, we’re loving the Garage revival and this is one of the best releases to come out of the current revival, watch out for this label, its going to do serious damage!!!!
Another round up is in order methinks!! Kicking off with a new EP by ScattyOne on Reformed Recordings, 2 excellent tracks, the rolling junglism of ‘Bad Boy’ and ‘Systems Are Go’ with it’s combo of mellow housey pads and heavy heavy Heavy BASS!!!
We finish with Fabrizio Sotti’s stunning Jungle/DnB rework of the Bob Marley classic ‘Waiting In Vain’ featuring vocals from chart topper, Shaggy & Res remixed by Bonnot, listen up and soak up the vibes
Another firing, dubwise refix out of the Jinx In Dub camp has surfaced today. He turns his hands to the anti-facist anthem from Chumbawamba, “Enough Is Enough”. Featuring the on point lyrics of UK rapper Credit To The Nation the original track was featured on their 1993 album Anarchy.
JID rolls out a quality, d&b refix of the track, rocking the dubbed out festival vibes he does so well. Don’t sleep on this one people!
