Fuzzbox Room (Hip-hop, funk & Mashups):
Brothers Bud are Dom Farrington and Ollie Gregson. Contrary to popular myth, they?re not actually brothers.
They first came to the attention of Finger Lickin? in the summer of 2002 when Dom turned up at Vinyl Addiction with the first 10 copies of the soon-to-be Finger Lickin? monster, ?Herbgrinder?. Including a blinding re-rub from in-house legends the Drumattic Twins, the release was a massive international success leading to compilation licences and radio and club support in every corner of the globe. Having found a home in the boxes of the Plump DJs, Dreadzone, Rennie Pilgrem, Kid Kenobi and Ali B, to name but a few, it simply had to join the Licker?s catalogue. It also made the number 1 spot in the Breaks & Beats chart in DJ Mag – not bad for a debut release!
Dom also has a nice little sideline in the more commercial side of dance music with his involvement with Ministry of Sound who are currently licensing a number of his productions. Following a recent pair of lauded one-off white labels, ?The Alarm? and ?Pump Box?, which gained a wealth of underground support, Brothers Bud have made a welcome return to the Finger Lickin? fold. A tasty double header of club bullets in form of ?Crazy Jack? and the infectious ?Don?t Stop? are already whetting the appetites of those in the know and more treats are in the pipeline.
