This is a dream that arrived much earlier than we ever imagined, they say
The members of Bombay Bassment, a four piece band that met through a mutual friend are truly a motley crew of musicians. With two Goans, one Mumbaiker, and one Kenyan, Bombay Bassment’s diversity also shines through in their genre-bending music. Together, Levin Mendes (on the drums), Ruel Barretto (with the bass), Chandrashekhar Kunder- aka Dj Major C (on production/sampling), and Bob Omulo aka MC Bobkat (who spits raps over the music) make tunes that brings together hip hop, drum ‘n’ bass, and elements of funk and reggae. Some songs are romantic, some have a social message, and many are a combination of the three.
