BoomBox Records was formed in early 1996 by Mole and Ian Taylor with the initial premise of creating a vehicle for the music being produced by Semi-Detached.
After the success of the first single, WHO DA FUCK, it was apparent that there was a demand for this new style of music. At the time the only labels producing consistently good quality beat oriented material were Wall Of Sound and Brighton based Skint. Big Beat was born. With labels such as TCR and BoomBox Records starting to push up the tempo, creating a fresh sound, in tune with house and techno, but with an important new direction, it became clear that a niche was developing in a rapidly expanding market.
Over the years BoomBox Records has remained dedicated to releasing quality breakbeat music. Mole’s ear for quality production has enabled the label to remain at the progressive edge of the ever changing breakbeat market. The label has given a start to many stars of the breakbeat scene, including General Midi, Stabilizer, Semi-Detached, Friendly, Kraymon and Nubreed.
Eight years on and BoomBox is still regarded as one of the most cutting edge labels within its genre. As the breakbeat sector gathers momentum the forthcoming release schedule includes tunes from new artists Sprayhead, Smithmonger and Slung Groove, plus the debut single from DJ MOLE.
2004 will see the launch of the highly anticipated mix album from DJ MOLE entitled More Boom For Ya Box Vol 1, the album will feature various classics from the labels back catalogue and forthcoming artists plus exclusive remixes from some of the scene’s biggest players.
