Bomb Strikes

Exploding onto the scene in 2004, UK-based Bomb Strikes wears the medal of honour for funk, broken beats, breaks and bass. Releasing tracks from Krafty Kuts, Tom Booze, A. Skillz, Nick Thayer, KW Griff, Featurecast, Pimpsoul and more, label leaders Beatvandals and Mooqee push a superb genre-bashing musical agenda fit for the dancefloor.

Space Cadillac EP
2 Funky (feat EVeryman & Mr Maph) - (3:50) Biggest-selling track on this release
Lollipop - (2:58)
Space Cadillac - (4:28)
Review: Bombstrikes welcomes Beat Le Juice to the label for his debut release. Whilst the Polish DJ & Producer may be new to the label, he is certainly no stranger to the scene, picking up a growing army of fans for his releases and remixes, combining funk vibes and electronic sounds. First up, '2 Funky' delivers a full-on bass funk assault with guitar hooks, synth bass, and powerful beats. This is all topped off by an anthemic talk box with Mr. Maph's funk vocal hooks and the deft flow delivery of EVeryman. The 2nd track, 'Lollipop' oozes class from the first refrains of its infectious synth hook, going on to combine elements of P-Funk with bottom-heavy modern electro. Finally, the title track 'Space Cadillac' combines soulful vocals over low-slung beats and bass to take the tempo down a little but loses none of the energy. If this is a sign of things to come from Beat Le Juice and Bombstrikes, then strap in because it's going to be quite the ride!

Review: It's been over 15 years since this writer was one of 100 or so who gathered in a sweaty, low-raftered Amsterdam basement to witness the live debut of Dutch funk and disco hopefuls Kraak & Smaak. Since then, the young pretenders have gone on to become true elder statesmen of the scene - which is another way of saying that you just KNOW the quality bar on this latest collection of contemporary disco, funk and boogie grooves is going to be set high. There's no room here to go into all 24 tracks one-by-one, but with contributions from the likes of Ben Gomori, Flevans and Hotmood alongside a host of more up-and-coming names, suffice to say lovers of the aforementioned styles will not be in the least bit disappointed.

Get Live Get Down
Get Live Get Down - (5:59)
Review: Taken from the Bombstrikes compilation - Disco Funkin' Vol. 5, curated by legends of the scene Kraak & Smaak, 'Get Live Get Down' is the Dutch masters at their imperious dancefloor-focused best. Percussion rolls, 4/4 rhythms, and arpeggio bass combine with strings and key stabs to relentlessly build the track into an all-out disco groover. Once the vocal drop is added, it becomes impossible to resist the urge to move as the energy levels soar. Kraak & Smaak are about to celebrate 20 years of being at the top of their game and this outing only reinforces their special talent.

So Much - (3:25)
Review: Whenever we see the Bomb Strikes logo popping up in the store, we know we are in for a heck of a time, with this latest offering from them welcoming back the one and only X-Ray Ted for a killer two-track display. First up, the title track 'Talkin' gives us a sumptuous sweep through old school funk, fusing nostalgic vocal layers and horns with groovy drum riffs and beefy bass action below, culminating in a party ready anthem, jam-packed with futuristic goodness. On the flip to this, we then dive into the heavily percussive sweeps of 'So Much', another shuffling shindig, this time focusing more-so on hard hitting drum breaks and more affected vocal slices, giving us another tasty treat that works perfectly as the B-side!

Review: Following in the footsteps of the likes of A Skillz, Beatvandals and The Allergies, Boca 45 helms the latest in Bomb Strikes' 'Funk N' Beats' compilation/mix album series, which has been running since 2013. As ever, Vol 10 features an eclectic, party-hearty mix of funk, hiphop and breaks jams, with wicky-wicky scratch sounds applied liberally. Notable inclusions this time around include two "never heard it like that before" covers of classics from the Spencer Davis Group and (sure to please footy fans) Gala, as well as Western Roots' reggae/ska-infused 'Bogus Daddy', while the bundled DJ mix version from Boca 45 showcases these sounds as they're really meant to be heard.

Freed From Desire (Boca 45 Remix)
Freed From Desire (Boca 45 remix) - (3:21)
Review: Taken from Bombstrikes compilation - Funk N' Beats Vol. 10, curated by Bristol's very own Boca 45. 'Freed From Desire' is Nat Tate's cover of a dance anthem featuring Waldo's Gift and Yolanda Quartey (AKA Yola, fresh from an award nominated performance portraying Sister Rosetta in Baz Luhrmann's Elvis movie), reworked into future funk classic by Boca 45. Guitar riffs and rolling beats dance alongside one hell of a vocal performance from Yolanda. Delivering an interpretation with such gravitas that it feels like it could actually be the original. A perfect taster of what the album has in store with music from Jurassic 5's Chali 2NA & Krafty Kuts. The Gaff, The Allergies' own DJ Moneyshot, Paul Nice & Phill Most Chill, X-Ray Ted, and many more.

Review: X-Ray Ted blasts back into our ears with a serious slice of Funk. Fusing rolling breaks with sublime vocals and musical hooks, the Bristol beatsmith showcases why he is so adored by aficionados such as Craig Charles, BBC Radio, and more. With 'Somebody Told Me' he has created a feel-good anthem, bringing a light-hearted ray of musical bliss into the world by reworking parts of the past into a new sound. There are two versions available, the original and a DJ-friendly extended mix. This is just the first taster of the outstanding musical output X-Ray Ted has lined up this year.

Review: What an exciting project this was too open up as we see Tom Booze touch down on Bomb Strikes with a truly explosive compilation, hand-curated for maximum sonic impact. From start to finish this collection showcases the very best of the now in new school breakbeat, from the Asian-inspired string plucks of Lack Jemmon's 'Don't Stop' to the more dubstep inspired twists and grooves of YGT YGT YGT from Posij and the sizzling synthetics of The Funk Hunters & Kotek's rework of 'With You', originally from Haywyre'. The project is jam-packed with exciting creations, with heavyweights such as Krafty Kuts, PAV4N, A.Skillz, Fort Knox Five & more all providing hard hitting drops to make this one of the most powerful breakbeat compilations of the year.

Ghetto Rave
Ghetto Rave - (4:32) 102 BPM
Review: Taken from the oustanding Bombstrikes compilation - Bass Funk Vol. 6 curated by the enigmatic Tom Booze, 'Ghetto Rave' is a new and exclusive track from the man himself. Just a small taste of what can be expected from the full release, this is just one track of many exclusives from the album, which also features music from heavyweights such as Thys (Noisia) & Two Fingers (AKA Amon Tobin), Opiuo, KOAN Sound, Krafty Kuts & PAV4N, The Funk Hunters & Kotek, Fort Knox 5 & Lazy Syrup Orchestra, A.Skillz, and Nick Thayer. As you would expect from Mr. Booze's releases, the assembled track listing is a perfectly curated collection of forward-thinking and groundbreaking Bass Funk.

Travel - (3:59) 123 BPM
Review: Back in July, Bombstrikes regulars The Nice Guys delivered a suitably summery, life-affirming chunk of accessible soulful house that had us purring with delight. This rapid follow-up, featuring the strong, diva-style vocals of Justina Lee Brown, retains the house beats while showcasing their soul and funk roots. The original mix - all crisp guitar licks, rubbery bass, disco horns and sing-along choruses - comes backed with a more tooled-up, all-action house re-wire from the Niceguys and solo bonus cut 'Travel'. This is a drowsy, thickset, synth-heavy, P-funk flecked, 'French Touch' style house workout that tips a wink to the likes of Cassius and Daft Punk.

Soul Is High
Soul Is High - (3:00) 123 BPM
The Niceguys - "City!" (How U Feel) - (5:44) 118 BPM
Review: A three-way team-up here as Bomb Strikes regulars The Niceguys join forces with genre-bending Canadian duo PINEO & LOEB and Jamaican vocalist Jah'Mila, the daughter of Wailers guitarist Earl 'Chinna' Smith. Together they've come up with 'Soul Is High', an uplifting, pop-tinged soulful houser that wouldn't have sounded out of place on one of Hed Kandi's 'Beach House' comps back in the day, while The Niceguys go it alone to bring us the pure 90s house vibes of 'City! (How U Feel)', which recalls podium classics like Blast's 'Crazy Man' or Tony Di Bart's 'The Real Thing'. Arms will be raised aloft for sure!

Junk The Funk - (3:44) 98 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Fight Night - (3:31) 100 BPM
Review: There's not a huge amount we can tell you about Tom Booze, except that he has a clutch of previous EPs for Bomb Strikes under his belt and describes his music as "one part moonshine, one part hip-hop and a dash of electronica". This latest outing kicks off with the mid-paced synthy throbber that is 'Overdrive' itself, before dropping the tempo for the far funkier and sleazier 'Junk The Funk', while the slo-mo electronic chug of 'Fight Night' completes the EP. Solid stuff all round, but it's 'Junk The Funk' that takes the gold for this writer.

Review: What a funkadelic way to start the weekend as X-Ray Ted lands once again on Bomb Strikes for a vibrant display of breaksy bounce with two sizzling originals, jam-packed with colourful sampling and in-depth flare. First up, 'Doin' My Thing' delivers a shuffling waltz through northern-soul style vocals and horn lines, atop a shimmering plate of breaks-inspired drum work to create a dancefloor-ready shuffler. On the flip, 'Tribute To The Original Artform' combines groovy bassline action with colourful percussive drives and cowbell-infused melody, providing a wicked b-side and keeping the energy levels high as we round this one off.

Review: Taken from the forthcoming Bombstrikes compilation - Joints n' Jams Vol. 2, which is once again curated by Glasgow's funkiest Shaka Loves You. 'In My Arms' is a new and exclusive disco heater delivered by the duo themselves, showcasing why they can count Mighty Mouse, Spiller and Craig Charles amongst the ever-growing army of fans. This is just a little taste of what the full album has in store, with the assembled tracklist covering Disco to House, with Beats and Funk along the way, to truly capture the Shaka Loves You multi genre sound. Look out for music from the likes of Natasha Kitty Katt, Young Pulse, Hot 8 Brass Band, Opolopo, Birdee, The Allergies, and Izo Fitzroy to name a few.

Irie (Flevans remix) - (4:17) 117 BPM
Review: The Niceguys and Bobby Saint join forces on an upbeat, summery lil' groover that sits somewhere between His Purpleness circa 'Sexy MF' and the more pop-tastic likes of 'Uptown Funk'. Accessible enough for commercial floors but credible enough to be played, too, to more discerning audiences, with a following wind behind it 'Irie' could go all the way to the Top 40. Natasha Kitty Katt gives the track a competent housed-up makeover, while Flevans gives it a polish for the more soul-oriented floors: neither does anything particularly dramatic or radical but the two rerubs will help broaden its appeal for sure.

Review: With a very succesful 2021 now tucked into the belt, The Bomb Strikes crew look to kick off their new year campaign with a bang, welcoming ElectroGorilla inside for a colourful display of futuristic breakbeat strength. We begin this fabulous two-track display with 'Nothing' a heavily manipulated display of vocal precision and unpredictable percussive perusing, give the whole track a sneaky yet groovy feel, topped off with sweeping horn lines for good measure. On the flip, we jump into a much more electronic sounding design on 'Drop', a smorgasbord of digital delight, from the well timed scratches, to the intense horn slides and everything in between. This is a great way for the team to kick off their year!

Deep minded lyricism is accompanied by the best block rockin' beats to close out the year on "Get Out The House" (Dirty version) while for those of you thinking the original was a bit NSFW, never fear, the clean version is here and featured for your radio play pleasure.

Just A Little Time
Just A Little Time - (6:15) 124 BPM
Gonna Work Out Fine - (6:21) 124 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: A simple two-tracker here from Glasgow duo Shaka Loves You, coming on Mooqee and Beatvandals' long-running Bomb Strikes label. 'Just A Little Time' is a fairly smooth-rollling contemporary disco jam given an energy boost in the mid-section via the injection of some ruff-edged Todd Terry-esque stabs, before the accompanying 'Gonna Work Out Fine' picks up that mid-90s disco-house ball and REALLY runs with it. Cosmic/Italo enthusiasts of the serious, chin-stroking variety may be left cold, but if it's energetic, unpretentious Saturday night fun and frolics you're after, step right on in - either of these cuts should serve your needs nicely.

Review: Featuring 22 full-length cuts plus a 42-minute mixed version, there's no faulting the VFM on offer from this Jim Sharp-helmed Bomb Strikes comp. Featuring tracks and mixes from the likes of The Allergies, The Nextmen, Ugly Duckling, Alice Russell, Lack Of Afro and Sam Krats, the emphasis here is on the kind of dusty funk/soul grooves that sit well alongside hip-hop and breaks - as opposed to the stack-heeled, silver-jumpsuited kind that goes better with disco - with standouts for this writer including Sly5thAve's moody, cinematic 'Shiznit' (think Shaft staring broodily out of a rain-streaked diner window) and Skill's 'Break It Down', a stuttery, stop-start gift for the jazz-dancers.

Oh My Gee - (3:16) 110 BPM
Review: We have come to expect naught but top quality from the Bomb Strikes Crew, who luck out big-time here with these two party-starting singalongs from X-Ray Ted. We begin with the title track 'Get It Started', which through some fierce sampling work explores the wicked combinations of slapping metallic drum sounds and groovy horn riffs, inspiring some serious dance floor energy. Secondly, 'Oh My Gee' applies an extra level of funkadelic groove as the heavily reverberated horn-lines take the lead role atop powerful subs and crunchy drums below. Fabulous stuff!

Hangin' Out
Hangin' Out - (5:35) 122 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Stomp - (5:15) 124 BPM
Review: Two contrasting but complementary cuts here from Glasgow duo and Craig Charles faves Shaka Loves You. 'Hangin' Out' comes on like a cross between authentically 70s-sounding 'new old' funk and hi-octane filter disco, but with the emphasis on the former; 'Stomp', meanwhile, is another fusion of similar elements but this time with the disco side of the equation firmly to the fore. Both will keep bodies moving on dancefloors for sure, but 'Stomp' is perhaps a little more immediate thanks to the sampled 'n' looped female "ha ha, get down" vocal that emerges around the halfway mark.

Review: Birdee is a rising star of the nu-disco and re-edit scenes, so it makes perfect sense that Bomb Strikes has recruited him to curate and mix the latest volume in their excellent Disco Funkin' compilation series. As you'd expect, it's a thoroughly and joyous affair, rich in colourful synth sounds, funky disco basslines and beats that flit between housed-up heaviness and more organic-sounding, less pumped-up grooves. There are tons of essential cuts amongst the 25 unmixed tracks on show, with highlights including the sun-bright rush of Pete Herbert's remix of Da Chick's 'Chick a Boom', the crunchy Clavinet-sporting disco-funk of Shaka Loves You's 'Let's Move (SLY Disco Rub)', the slick French Touch style warmth of Birdee's own 'Thinking About You' and Ray Mang's celebratory revision of Smoove & Turrell's 'Do It'.

Review: Following fine outings from Fort Knox Five, the Allergies, Smoove and Marc Hype, amongst others, Bomb Strikes' reliable Funk N' Beats compilation series returns with rising star X-Ray Ted at the controls. In keeping with the series' heavyweight, funk-fuelled style, the Bristol-based DJ and beat-maker has gathered together a killer collection of soul, hip-hop and funk club cuts, with a smattering of more laidback numbers to keep things fresh. Highlights are plentiful throughout, with our picks including the boom-bap brilliance is Aldo Vanucci's tidy remix of 'All Down' by Mr Doris and D-Funk, the dancefloor jazz heaviness of Nostalgia 77's 'Changes', the cut-and-paste craziness of Double Dee & Steinski's 'Jazz' and the disco-funk masterclass that is X-Ray Ted's own 'Party Time'.

Review: A most loved artist within the Bomb Strikes arsenal is Ali B who's supplied a stream of music for the imprint over recent years, taking in collaborations with The Jungle Brothers, Nick Thayer and vocalists like Baby Bam, and now Afika NX. Turning in a bass heavy, 808 inspired jazz twist in the title-track, it's full of Atlanta hip hop attitudes - to broken beat and funk elements in the Fort Knox remix - "Swing It" goes as good in the club as it does your turbo charged whip.

Bounce With Me - (3:34) 116 BPM
Review: Seven months after their last outing for the popular Bomb Strikes imprint, label regulars Proper & Stabfinger return to action with another typically on-point three-tracker. We're particularly enjoying title track 'Body in Flexion', where mind-altering synthesizer arpeggio lines, Clavinet style riffs and cut-up female hip-hop vocal snippets ride filthy bass and the bounciest of electro beats. Everyman lends a hand on 'Boogie To The Disco', a revivalist nu-disco stomper full of Chic-style guitar riffs, weighty drums, walking bass and sweeping synth-strings, while 'Bounce With Me' is a similarly funk-fuelled vocal number that would no doubt be tearing up clubs right now if any were actually open.

Review: Bringing a select bevvy of the best Bombstrikes tracks the label has released in 2020, it's enjoyed an explosive year of tunes from Krafty Kuts, Jet Boot Jack, Lack Jemmon, Shaka Loves You and more! They feature here with "Blow Your Whistle", a funked-out "Let's Move" and the lowdown swing-track "I'm A Boss". Other highlights include the Cypress Hill style hip house track "Stir It Up Sister (feat K MI & KDS)" to Prosper & Stabfinger's squelchy, space bubble cruise down mainstreet: "Down In The Basement (feat Awoke)". With some tear-out bass, horns and synths coming out of Ninjulas' "You Know I Like It", check out some lo-fi and slamming funk, disco and house from X-Ray Ted's "On The Floor'' alongside The Nice Guys' Godzilla-themes "Turn It Out" and Jet Boot Jack's strings in "Straight To My Head". Boom!

Review: Following the success of Shaka Loves You's previous compilations on Bombstrikes, the label has offered them the chance to launch a new series all of their own. Named in honour of their radio show and regular parties in Glasgow, Joints & Jams offers up a hugely entertaining (and largely floor-friendly) mixture of funk-fuelled hip-hop (Bastien Keb, Fort Knox Five, Andy Cooper), skanking reggae (The Nextmen and Gentlemen's Dub Club sing-along 'Done It Again'), flash-fried funk breaks (the Allergies), tropical goodness (DJ Nu-Mark's hook-up with Quantic), and various fusions of disco, boogie and funk (see the cuts from Kraak & Smaak, X-Ray Ted, Pablo & Shoey and Shaka Loves You themselves). The result is a brilliantly mixed-up collection of tried-and-tested dancefloor bombs.

Cruisin' - (5:30) 124 BPM
Review: Taken from the forthcoming Bombstrikes compilation - Joints n' Jams Vol. 1 curated by Glasgow's funkiest Shaka Loves You, 'Cruisin' is a new and exclusive track from the duo themselves. As a small taster of what can be expected from the full release, this Disco Stomper is just one track of many exclusives from the album which spans many genres from Funk and Hip Hop to Beats and House. The full album features music from such luminaries as DJ Nu-Mark & Quantic, Kraak & Smaak, The Nextmen & Kiko Bun, Izo FitzRoy, Chali 2NA & Krafty Kuts, Andy Cooper, The Allergies and Fort Knox Five. Also not forgetting the Disco vibes of Hobbs & Ron Mexico, Birdee & Andre Espertue, Afriquoi and Art of Tones. The assembled tracklisting really does encapsulate the signature 'SLY' multi-genre ethos and sound.

Review: Introducing Mr.Doris & D-Funk who make their debut on Bombstrikes. Known for sets and residencies at Glitterbox, Space and Pacha, the Ibiza-based Mr.Doris hooks up with Sydney selector D-Funk to wheel in a fusion of explosive soul, hip hop and house grooves with touches of vocal class from N'Fa Jones and Cantaloop. Led by suave and waxed lyrics sung with jazzy tropes alongside warm rhodes, broken beat rhythms and a hot chorus to boot, Aldo Vanucci turns up the horns in his remix while adding weight to the drums and that all-famous 'turn it up' vocal.

Straight To My Head - (7:26) 121 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Straight To My Feet - (8:02) 128 BPM
Review: Since the start of the year, Jet Boot Jack has remixed a classic Nightwriters track and released a mixture of re-edits and original productions on Sundries Digital, Rare Wiri, Hot Digits, Dubplate Disco and Midnight Riot. Here the fast-rising producer continues his seemingly unstoppable ascent via a tasty two-tracker on Bomb Strikes. Lead cut 'Straight to My Head' is a punchy and potent chunk of celebratory disco-house bounce heavy in weighty bass, swirling special effects, cut-up vocal snippets and sampled 1970s instrumentation. He ups the tempo and intensity on 'Straight to My Feet', a surging and stomping slab of peak-time disco-house heaviness that makes great use of Latin-style horn blasts, elongated build-ups and the kind of razor-sharp guitar licks more often associated with Chic's Nile Rodgers.

Review: For the latest volume in their popular Disco Funkin' compilation strand, Bomb Strikes has handed over curation duties to rising star and Midnight Riot regular Natasha Kitty Katt. The Edinburgh DJ/producer's selections are undeniably addictive and on-point, moving between heavyweight re-edits (see her collaboration with Twisted Soul Collective, 'Twisted Katt', solo disco-funk tweak 'Edgarr!' and Oliver Boogie's slamming 'Dance Band'), superior nu-disco originals (Phoenix's piano-heavy 'Nature Dance', Fouk's sample-heavy 'Cat Lady' and the slick boogie revivalism of Lovebirds' 'Give Me a Sign') and loopy disco-house treats (the contributions from Shaka Loves You, Birdee, Hotmood and Mark Lower). Those looking for fresh dancefloor ammunition will find much to enjoy, while the Scottish DJ's accompanying mix is as entertaining and excitable as they come.

Don't Stop - (3:44) 105 BPM
I'm A Boss - (4:18) 153 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Bomb Strikes are back at it again with more explosive behaviour here as they continue their thoroughly enjoyable run of releases, welcoming two original smashes from Lack Jemmon. We kick off our look into this release with 'Don't Stop', which takes its place as title track for a reason as we are engulfed in a wash of sumptuous eastern melodic plucks and big room drum snaps, giving us a worldly level of production. On the flip side we take in 'I'm A Boss', another eastern inspired piece when it comes to melodic structure, this time using tooting saxophone lines over blippy drum expressions and well placed vocal samples to round the project off with a bang.
