Bundown returns to FM dial


After nine years, Bundown Sound System will return to the FM dial tomorrow night with their new weekly mixshow, Fuel Good Radio.

Collectively, Bundown – in its current form – have never shared mics on-air but there are a handful of them who are no strangers to radio.

Lucious worked the airwaves on FLAVA 107.9, CKUW 95.9 and ENVOL 91.1.

Boogie, Lord and Pleezy also served as on-air talent on CKUW.

The entire team will rock the turns every Friday from 12 midnight – 2 a.m as well as feature live-to-airs from Bar Italia, the popular Corydon Avenue haunt which hosts their fuelGOODmusic residency on Friday and Saturday nights.

Bundown rocks the Mox

Tonight, the BSS will be throwing down the club bangers at two Moxie’s locations.

Quadratik and Jay Boogie will be spinning at Moxie’s Classic Grill on Regent while Ofield K and Bruce Lord hold down Moxie’s Classic Grill at MTS Centre!

Take your pic or better yet, reach both!

No exaggeration…reach early…Moxie’s parties always have line-ups!

We’ll see y’all on the dancefloor tonight!

Plug tune in

De La Soul’s Maseo to play Pyramid.
The cat’s finally out of the bag.

As mentioned in previous posts and Twitter blasts, we have been sitting on a show that we’ve been dying to announce and so without further ado, we are proud to announce that MASEO aka Plug 3 will be gracing the stage of the Pyramid on April 16.

He will be joined by QUADRATIK, JAY BOOGIE, OFIELD K, LUCIOUS and special guest LONNIE CE (THE LYTICS, Grippin’ Grain).

Advance tickets are $10 and will be available at The Urban Bakery (shout out to Kev!) and door admission is $15.


At the same time, don’t forget that DJ TAKTIKS will be our special guest at M*O*V*E this Saturday, April 9 at The Orbit Room! Taktiks has been holding down Toronto’s CKLN 88.1FM for a minute now with his Mixtape Massacre radio show. He’s a true music lover and he can always be found spinning at clubs, lounges and parties in the GTA. Last year, he played Bar Italia alongside Quadratik and left a lasting impression! Ofield will also be holding down Calculated Soul Live at Lobby On York, so you’ve got a double BUNDOWN flex this Saturday!

Studio54 is also fast approaching and will take place inside 6 Degrees Martini Bar & Wine Lounge on Good Thursday, April 21! We’ll be welcoming back our homey MAVRIK (Dangerous Goods Crew) on the decks that night, as well! Word is spreading and folks are anticipating a night of disco from the 70s to nu disco!

Finally, if you don’t already know about the RAEKWON show on Saturday, April 23 at the Pyramid, then we should inform you that the show will be opened by FILTHY ANIMALS, DJ CO-OP and our very own Boogz! Rae is touring to support the release of the latest Wu banger, Wu-Tang vs Shaolin, which you should cop immediately via your fave music source!

That’s it for now…see ya on the dancefloor!

P.S. A new addition to the BUNDOWN fam will be making his debut in the near future…;)

Bringing the band back

Original Funk Bundown lineup to headline Testify.

By now we’re hoping that you know about TESTIFY, the upcoming fete that will reunite the DJs that played together for 2008’s Funk Bundown summer residency @ The Orbit Room. Yes, the same residency that gave birth to what is now known as the BUNDOWN SOUND SYSTEM. Though we have played together in various incarnations since then, this will be the first time everyone will be playing under the same roof – with the exception of DOUGIE B and MANIC, who will be in Los Angeles and Calgary, respectively.

We’re happy to be bringing the funk, soul, disco, rap and house to you inside Ragpickers’ Theatre Annexe, 2nd fl-216 McDermot, which if you can recall, was the same place we had our | ∂ecadence | after hours jam back in August.

We’re also happy to have the participation of B-BOY SUGAR of MEIJI CREW/CENTRAL BEATHEADS taking care of our visuals for the evening. If you’ve seen his shots, you know he’s gonna nice up the place heavy, seen!

Admission is only $5 and for that measly price you get:

…along with LUCIOUS as your host and agent provocateur!

So, mark it on your BlackBerry, iPhone, Nexus One, agenda, calendar or forehead because come the February long weekend, nothin’ in city is going to be hotter than July!!!

Ragpickers’ Theatre Annexe,
2nd fl-216 McDermot

See ya on the dancefloor!
