B IS FOR BOMB THE BASS (PT1)

Bomb The Bass (formed 1987, in London, England) is the umbrella title for the output of DJ, Tim Simenon.
As a name, Bomb The Bass came from Simenon’s approach to DJing. Whilst playing, he says “samples were either scratched in live or sampled and looped on top of the rhythm section. So the concept was one of bombing the bass line with different ideas, with a collage of sounds. Bombing was a graffiti term for writing, like people would ‘bomb’ trains or whatever.”

First single “Beat Dis” was recorded for almost nothing and got to No. 2 in the UK Charts. It made Tim a star. “Hanging in Midair” is from a charity LP “Foundations” for the homeless.
