Beat Assassins are legendary in the field of raving. Rising to the top of the breakbeat pile throughout the second half of the noughties there were far too many nights to count when the main stomper on the dancefloor was a Beat Assassin bullet! Direct Hit for example was (and still is!) a firm favourite for letting loose too!
As the noughties became the - hang on, what do we call this current decade? - well, the current decade, Jimmy and Joe started off in their separate directions, as we indicated right here on Funk and Filth five years ago. Joe headed off to work on some little side project called Sigma, ever heard of them? And Jimmy smashed on with the Beat Assassins moniker, flirting with trap and other bass genres, keeping the quality as top notch as ever all the time.

Around a year ago in 2016 Beat Assassins (although actually only the single assassin nowadays) plunged headfirst back into the DnB pool and aural pleasure receptors far and wide started tingling all over again. With some monster tracks including War Dem, Deny, Ramm Out and Drop It Hard, and remix work from the likes of TREI, DJ Rap, DJ Callide, 1000DaysWasted and Funk and Filth legends D'Silva and Toronto Is Broken, it's an empressive arsenal of dancefloor weaponry being forged at Beat Assassins HQ!
The Beat Assassins Retropsective Mix (free download by the way) contains most of the recent big guns and should be in your ears by now really. If you haven't pressed play/download already then what is wrong with you!? And the TiB remix of of See Ma Gun Go feat Miss Stylie is by far our favourite of the current crop. Enjoy.
