Sub-Bombin is a dynamic label of artists based in Upstate New York, releasing original music from all over the country. Formed in 2005, the name was taken from the late night indie hip-hop radio show hosted by Rawhead and Midas on Skidmore College’s WSPN FM in Saratoga Springs. The duo infused the local scene with the finest in underground hip-hop, instrumentals and even playing some early Sub-Bombin crew releases.

Then, from a natural evolution of friends with a common love for hip-hop, and music in general, an original production crew turned its energies into an actual record label. In 2007 they began to press cd’s, records and t-shirts, and later added it’s digital store to provide an avenue for exclusive Sub-Bombin releases in the digital era.

Today, the label continues to seek out new artists and projects to continue their tradition of finding creative ways to bring quality music to the discerning listener.
