WHEN IT COMES TO URBAN ELECTRO…

… I love me a good BEAT ASSASSINS jam. These 2 have accomplished a LOT in the short time they’ve been together. Here’s some more on them…

The Beat Assassins first evolved in 2006 when Wooz & Jimmy got together in a shed in Harpenden to write a couple of tunes. But one thing led to another and, before they knew it, the Beat Assassins became an established act and launched their own label, Mofo Recordings. Their mutual love of hip-hop and dance music heavily influenced their productions and by 2007 Beat Assassins were dropping hip-hop vocals over phat breaks on a 130 bpm tempo.

 

 

The Beat Assassins’ production standards rapidly improved and at the end of 2007 they released We Run Tings, which invented a new territory in breakbeat production called “urban electro”. This new style unites breakbeat, electro and dancehall, delivering an exciting and individual sound resulting in 2 nominations for breakthrough producers at the International Breakbeat Awards.

In 2009 Beat Assassins released their 4-part series called Urban Electro Project (UEP), which includes remixes from the Assassins’ favourite producers within the genres of breakbeat, bassline house, drum n’ bass and fidget house. These include AC Slater, Calvertron, Sigma and NAPT. This project has won support from Groove Armada, Utah Saints, Stanton Warriors, Plump DJs and Dub Pistols.

 

Also released in 2009 were two of the most successful breaks remixes of the year. Tittsworth Ft Kid Sister & Paserock / WFT (Beat Assassins Remix) on Hotcakes alongside a massive remix of Deekline & Wizard Ft Top Cat & Yolanda / Bounce & Rebound on Against The Grain. Both remixes stayed top 10 in all breaks charts for many weeks.

Here’s a killer jam by the Assassins, featuring a rough ragga vocal from SWEETIE IRIE. It’s called BOOMSTYLE…
