    These guys were smashing it around the end of 2008. Heaps of awesome tunes. Monster Bugs was HUGE!

    But I haven't seen any releases on redeye, chemical, beatport or juno? What happened?

    The only thing I have seen is Gangsta Fun - Cold Reality on nu-urban (which is an awesome tune by the way).

    Been keen to play some of their tunes for ages.

    They're both members on here mate, so if they don't respond on here then give them a PM. Both sweet as fellas. Gangsta Fun did do a mix back in Sept that could have some forthcoming tunes on it, just check Mixes & T/listings. Peace.

    Yo Bruv-We still around,I n:side (AKA Skilla) Have taken a large amount of time away to finish up some biz I had started with some dubstep shit. Tunes are doen and will be released soon-some hitting vinyl on stupid fly recs. again these are dubstep releases-if you dig dubstep I posted a new mix a day or so on the mix section check it ou fresh wobble but dubstep.
    as for G-fun he as well is on a break-working on a new studio atm. We will be back for 2010 with a ton of new ear shattering jump up beats maybe even some Half step wobble shit.
    Keep an eye out and most of all....THANKS FOR NOTICING-we will be back soon bruv!,.
    EZ.
    P. S...PM me and may be able to slide you some unreleases ish that most likely aint hitting the streets-we do have some beats with Phantom Dub Recs-Hit up Shrust on the label hes the man.
    peEZ.

    u said it mate. not really sure whats goin on w/ dnbsource, he's not the easiest guy to contact. more g-fun will be out on radical beats vinyl as soon as we can push it out. be on the lookout for both jumpup, as well as dubstep bits on that front. nside's remix of 'rub a dub' will be out soon on stupid fly vinyl which is one of my fave dubstep beats atm. gfs will have mr potato head and the coward released on phantom dub digital around feb 2010. all the newest clips and wut not can be found on www.myspace.com/gangstafundnb and www.myspace.com/gfsofficial. thanx a lot for recognizing our efforts.. as for myself it's been ruff with lots of drama and bs to deal w/ in life as of late. no worries tho, 2010 will b bigtime. once the new studio is up and running, the beats will b fresher than ever w/ a more powerful pc to add more layers and better mixdown capabilities. just like nside said, hit us up on pm's and we'll sort out some beats to tide u over :] cheerz

    G-Fun

    sorry as fuck about the whole dnbsource thing bro-if you do not get that shit soon I will personally slide you the 320's-and I dont give a fuck what anyone says-you show me proof you bought it and aint got it yet you deserve atleast the 320's nah mean bruh.
    GFS has a lot of shit from the very beginning we been holding on to and may be time to let them go as freeleases because yall reconizing we been away for a bit means alot.
    We aim tyo please you all-if it wasn;t for you all out there we'd be shit right now.Thanks for the follow up with us and keep the shit gangsta-Jump up is falling apart and GFS is gonna take care of that big time in 2010-i've got a handfull of fresh jump upish tunes up my sleevs at the moment and you all will get a taste once I get a chance to sort and post this mi I had for a bit.

    Ok I think G-Fun & I have came to a conlusion...
    We are going to do a 2 part freelease.
    Part 1 will be Happy Friendly Shit (Original Mix) B/w Merc'd.
    Part 2 will be Happy Friendly Shit (Skilla VIP MIX) B/w Necropolis (Which is a dubstep tune we made a bit ago).
    Be on the looks out-I'll most likely have to Hit these through T-racks and they'll be about shortly.
