Biography

Bashy (real name Ashley Thomas) is a MC from North West London, who makes grime music but is also known for vocalling hip hop beats. He was a member of the Special Delivery crew, who had a regular set on the pirate radio station Freeze FM. He made his name through his clashing ability, with his direct and comical punch-lines causing problems for other MCs, including Demon on Lord Of The Mics 2, and Ghetto. One of his biggest hits to date is ‘Black Boys’, which was released in October 2007.

Still only twenty three years old BASHY made a phenomenal impact, sparking a avalanche of interest and enthusiasm that’s steadily and somewhat vigorously begun to break down the doors of the mainstream media and industry at large.

Without the support of any major label and strictly through independent means BASHY has managed to capture the imagination of the nations youth in a relatively short space of time. In the last eighteen months he’s gone from driving a bus to becoming the face and voice of a generation.

From the release of his first two mixtapes ‘Ur Mum Volume One’ & ‘The Chupa Chups Mixtape – Assorted Flavours’, he knew he was onto something, BASHY explains….

“it was crazy! we sold 1000 in our first week! By the second week we’d sold another 1000, by the end of the month we where at 3,000 sold! This is without any major distribution support. Just making friends take 100, then someone rings you up like ‘can I get 50’, ‘100’, ‘200’, ‘Have you got 500’…”
