“End of Bombastic Jam”

All good things come to an end friends, but it sure is with a little sadness that I share with You
the news that Bombastic Jam will cease to exist as a label.

A true work of love, over the years Bombastic Jam has brought together artists from all over the world with quality releases, unique collaborations and a keen ear for the freshest sounds in the business: from dance floor fillers to hammock chillers Bombastic Jam has proudly and consistently delivered entertainment to your ears.

Nothing but good old fashioned pride for a project that might be coming to its end but that has united funk lovers from all over the globe under one shaking roof and big big ups to all the artists that have chosen and supported Bombastic as a platform for their music and to all of you for supporting our artists and buying our music.

While bombastic Jam will be no longer, the music will still be available for your listening pleasure; but do take the time to connect directly with each of your favorite artists via social media and find out what they have been cooking in the studio.

The end of something, even of something we had learned to love, also means more energy, more focus and more passion going towards other projects:

And that really means more quality music, so please connect with my projects directly and don’t miss a funking beat, because lots is brewing for this coming months!

1love

Basement Freaks attempt to redress the balance with their second studio album Funk From The Trunk which shows the boys in full P-Funk flow. From opening track A Blues Thang to the last gasp of album closer The Last Train – you know you are listening to young soul rebels who have found their full funky flow. Producer George Fotiadis won a lot of fans as a leader of the burgeoning ghetto funk scene and while that scene is still big internationally, there are no wobble bass lines here, just block rocking hip hop beats, funky wah wah guitars and funky as flip vocals from longtime collaborator and fellow Freak Georges Perin as well as guest spots from Mustafa Akbar of Nappy Riddem, Charlie Funk and MC Rayna. Opener A Blues Thang was the standout track from a vinyl sampler EP released by the Freaks at the end of last year and is distinctive for its deep south harmonica lead and blues drenched vocal. Which part of America’s deep south are these boys from you ask ? Thessaloniki I answer. Greece is the word. Moving on to the guestsMustafa Akbar is a mic killer who first came to our notice here at Jalapeno Towers providing the funk for our DC Brothers Fort Knox Five. Basement Freaks reached out to him to work with them on FFTT. Mustafa liked the flavour of their funk and sealed another international connection providing a special flavour to the album and bringing the DC love to 3 tracks. Work It Out featuring MC Rayna is a big heavy hitting slice of hip hop and street soul. The aggressive twang of MC Rayna gives the track an edge that will have clubs jumping from Atlanta to Hamburg where the Freaks are now resident. The Moondoo club in Hamburg is an important melting pot for artists who can bring the heat and it was here that the Freaks met Charlie Funk who plays regularly at the club. A night in the studio later and Funk For Freaks was finished and it was down to the Freaks to mix and master their second album for Jalapeno. Funk From the Trunk is a step on from Something Freaky – their debut. That album spawned a hit single which was licensed to a US TV show further upping the Freaks credibility over in Hollywood. Their debut album charted in the US college radio charts and Basement Freaks are looking to build on that success this time round. Basement Freaks are touring their live show round festivals and clubs this summer. Expect to see them rocking a field / dancefloor / basement near you soon.
