Polydor Records Germany / Universal Music
Finland are delighted to announce the signing
of a new long-term recording agreement with
Finland's finest The BOMFUNK MCs, winners
of the 2000 MTV Europe Award for Best Nordic
Act and 2001 German ECHO Award for Best
Dance Single ("Freestyler"). After four years
and two Albums with Sony Music Finland
resulting in Worldwide Album sales in excess
of 1 Million Units and Single Sales close to 3
Million Units, The BOMFUNK MC's found
themselves out of contract in September
2002 whilst enjoying their second major hit
in Germany with their unique interpretation
of Russ Ballard's "Something Going On",
which they originally recorded for the Official
Music of the FIFA World Cup Korea-Japan 2002.
On its earlier release across Scandinavia
"Something Going On" had become the
Bomfunks 3rd consecutive Top 5 single of
2002 in Sweden, Norway and Finland.
The band have been recording for the past
six months, again with longtime song-writing
collaborator and Producer JS16 and also with
Bomfunks band members Riku Pentti, Okke
Komulainen and Ville Makinen who together
work as up-and-coming Finnish Production
Team "The Skillsters". The third Bomfunk MC's
album is planned for Summer 2004 release.
Meanwhile The Bomfunk MC's continue to
play live across Europe.
||The new album consists of funky breaks, hard
steady beats, some fine pop melodies and
absolutely brand new ways of rhymin´ -
so be alert… for the funky blast in 2004.
It´s a new era in Bomfunk and our aim is
to direct a new wave of sounds to clubs,
and dancefloors. "We couldn´t be stuck
by the tunes you´ve already heard so we´re
constantly experimenting radically to produce
something outstanding - something you
never heard before." It takes time but damn
it´s worth it to drop a killer tune - to be an
originator and not to be a follower of fashion.
