The Boomjacks are beatmakers from Kuopio, Finland. The duo consists of brothers Jyri & Villejam, both having a strong musical background. The brothers started making beats separately but eventually ended up working together in late December 2008. The production of The Boomjacks could be characterized as eclectic HipHop and BoomBap.
After a couple of years of making beats for Emcee’s only, The Boomjacks decided to alter their approach to beats and began releasing their instrumentals for listeners. In January 2011 The Boomjacks started with Beats Series, a very straight-forward, well received continuum of beat tapes that spans to four volumes at the moment. In November 2012 The Boomjacks released a conceptual instrumental album, Beats of Ice and Fire, which was inspired by George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels and HBO's Game of Thrones tv series adaptation.
It was shortly followed by a jazz-funk inspired instrumental release Butter & Jam. In July 2013 The Boomjacks released a collaborative EP together with the Pennsylvania based MC Apollo’s Sun, The Ownlife Sessions, Vol. 1. The last months they have spent working on new instrumental material for Moments in Space and Time. Checkout their unique sound below.
