The Boomjacks are a beatmaker duo from Kuopio, Finland. The duo consists of brothers known as Jyri & Villejam who both have a strong musical background. The brothers started making beats separately but eventually ended up working together in December 2008. The production of The Boomjacks could be characterized as eclectic hip hop and boom bap; It’s basis is on heavy sampling and hard hitting drums.
After a couple of years making beats for MC’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 currently spans to four volumes. In November 2012 The Boomjacks released a conceptual instrumental album, ‘Beats of Ice and Fire’, 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 called ‘The Ownlife Sessions, Vol. 1’
