For my first freebie of 2021 I’ve again teamed up with Mr Doris & the great Slightly Transformed to bring you our rework of ‘Raptivity’ which features as part of their ‘New Year Give Away 2021’ release. Also on the Ep are other tracks by Dice NZ & Chuggin Edits.
Bombstrikes welcomes Mr.Doris & D-Funk for their debut single: ‘All Down’ featuring N’fa Jones and Cantaloop. Whilst they may be new for the label, they are certainly not new to the scene. This one has real international flavour to it with the four collaborators hailing from Ibiza, Australia, New Zealand and the UK. When not touring the globe as resident for huge events such as Glitterbox, Space and Pacha, Mr. Doris can be found on the beautiful white Isle of Ibiza, where his fusion sound of funk, soul, hip hop and house has seen him produce with legends such as Nightmares on Wax and Groove Armada. D-Funk resides in Sydney where he has a long established a global reputation as a legendary purveyor of all things beats, breaks and funk over multiple tours and 100 plus releases. That pedigree is definitely on show with this release. First up, the original mix of ‘All Down’ fuses broken beats with deep bass dives, organ riffs and funk guitar licks which is all brought together by the outstanding vocals of N’fa Jones and Cantaloop. ‘On the flip’, Aldo Vanucci, most notable as Plymouth’s 14th best DJ, does what he does best and funks out the groove with infectious horn hooks and delivers a head nodding master of a remix. Once again showing why he counts the likes of Fatboy Slim amongst his biggest fans. Based on this debut, the combination of Mr. Doris & D-funk with Bombstrikes sounds like it could be a perfect match!

Another guest mix this time for Toy Beats & the Disco Data Podcast. I was really excited to put this mix together as it’s focused more on the disco & house side of things which isn’t really what I’m known for but it’s what I’m finding myself playing more & more these days, albeit it in my signature funk style. I went deep into the collection & came up with 90 mins of rare disco nuggets, wicked afro beats & funky assed house grooves. I’m super happy with this mix & I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it!
Toy Beats has been making some great tunes/edits recently including his ace re-work of Nate Dogg’s ‘I Got Love’!

The juggernaut of an edit series that is That’s Not An Edit roll onto their 12 instalment! If you’re not familiar with TNAE it’s a series put together by an all Australian cast of producers & editors with a huge back catalogue of releases.
For my offering on Vol 12 I took my edit & re-splice knife to a classic hip hop number & fused it with the original track it sampled. It’s a cool concept that I think turned out pretty good! But hear for yourself…
