It is an urban group created by four eclectic artists Bobkat (Robert Omulo) in rap, Levin (Levin Mendes) on drums, Ruell (Ruell Barretto) on bass guitar and Chandu (Chandrashekhar Kunder) on samples/percussion.

Bombay Bassment mostly performed their namesake debut album ‘Bombay Bassment’s tracks such as ‘Jump and Stomp’, ‘Show Me What You Got’, while, we were expecting more from their second album ‘Bombay Bassment X FUNC- VIP’, a revolutionary collaborative project with Randolph Correia, guitarist Mumbai-based electronic duo Shaa’ir and Func.

Despite diverse cultural and musical backgrounds, Bombay Bassment’s sound describes the grass roots of each; the upbeat blend of Hip-Hop, Rap, Reggae, Drum and Bass pull off a reverberation that was out of the ordinary.

With a congregation of sounds, Funk Assassin, (DJ Amul’s bass avatar) along with The Colour Compound, who gained some serious critical acclaim after releasing their debut album, ‘From Where We Stand’ (2014) were also dominating acts at the Mud Rush 2016.

The Mud Rush, through the line-up, has ensured there’s music for everyone. However, in simple words, we kind of liked the whole idea but, the execution of performances, planning and the management could have been better.
