Format: Audio CD
Released in 1999, Soundbombing 1 was the first official mix CD from the then fledgling Rawkus label. Listening to the first Soundbombing today comes in stark contrast to the extremely polished, but slightly bland third in the series. Where the most recent release is bloated by some big name stars putting in mediocre performances, this collection is a tight mix of hungry, focused rappers, scratchy, intense production and some highly capable mixing from Evil D.
The standout tracks are those involving perhaps the greatest but most short-lived hip hop collective ever, Company Flow. 'Lune TNS' and 'Fire In Which You Burn' (credited to the Indelible MCs) both find their way onto this mix, and once again remind listeners how much of a shame it is that they split so prematurely. Elsewhere RA The Rugged Man is his usual uncompromising self on 'Flipside' and 'Till My Heart Stops'.
In contrast to the rough and obdurate work of Company Flow and The Rugged Man, Rawkus stalwart Mos Def lends his silky flow to proceedings. His classic cut 'If You Can Huh' remains one of the strongest works in the Rawkus annals and is found towards the end of this mix. Fans of the most underrated man in hip hop will also enjoy his freestyle with Talib Kweli which links sides A and B.
Other impressive moments include the snapping drum and thumping subterranean bass line that backs ‘Empire Staters’ by B-One, Kool Keith’s familiarly obtuse rambling on ‘So Intelligent’ and the melodious whistling that accompanies L-Fudge’s ‘Show Me Your Gratitude’.
While the mixing for the most part is stylish and unobtrusive, the biggest criticism one can level at this mix is Evil D's insistence on shouting his name every couple of seconds.

Format: Audio CD
I was initially disapointed with this CD, perhaps because my expectations of the Rawkus seal of quality, but it does gather momentum after a flawed start. The likes of Mos Def/Talib Kweli, Shabaam Sahdeeq and Reflection Eternal offer fine cuts, but the disc's opening five tracks are consecutively and consistently irritating. This, however, is by no means the CD's major downfall - the album suffers at the evil hands of Evil Dee and his insistance on interrupting the flow of the mix with a banal phrase over practically every track - "Evil Dee is in the area!", "Evil Dee is on the mix!". A good DJ needs to add something of him/herself to the mix, but ultimately the tunes should be what carries the album. Evil's scratching often sounds amateurish and his repetetive self promotion is just annoying.
On further listenings, I find myself skipping the Indelible MCs and Sir Menelik tracks (even though one includes Kool Keith) and Evil's Side A and Side B intros and putting up with his dumb shouts. It's not the ideal way to listen to a CD! Maybe 10 of the 17 tracks are good, enjoyable (listenable) Hip Hop cuts.
On a whole, the CD's worth a listen if you're fan of Rawkus, but don't expect the quality you've become accustomed to through CDs by the likes of Mos Def, Black Star or Reflection Eternal, or even the Scratch Perverts Rawkus CD from HHC a few months back.

Yeah this is a good compilation with some awesome tracks from the independant-era of mid to late 90s rap. Shabaam Sahdeeq's track is a highlight as are the two Co Flow tracks. Head and shoulders above these tracks are the Reflection Eternal songs which are genuine rap classics.

Much needed if you crave for the bass lead intelligent hip hop. Great production from sound bombing. Puts todays crap to bed.
