Music Alliance Pact

Bobkat’s (mc/rapper) vision of Indian Hip Hop is certainly shaping out the way he anticipated. Bombay Bassment’s 1st single Hip-Hop [Never Be The Same] is making huge impact from the time it was released on Stupid Ditties 4: Awesome Foursome compilation back in October 2010. Since then, every gig played, internet streaming platforms or even as our demo, this single has hustled us out good recognition & reviews.

To be part of Music Alliance Pact – March 2011 is by far the biggest achievement for Bombay Bassment.
