(2)Deep: Finsta Bundy

blame it on JES7 April 10, 2011

Only the most die-hard Black Moon fans would know that the original group’s line-up included DJ Evil Dee, 5 Ft. Accelerator & Finsta, sans Buckshot Shorty. During this early incarnation of the group, they actually went by the name High Tech (which Finsta states was also the name of a clothing store in Bushwick). Finsta shortly left the group for personal reasons. In 1992, Finsta, although no longer a part of Black Moon, released his first single, Finsta Baby b/w Payday Is Bliss produced by an early version of Da Beatminerz. After Finsta brought forth his first seed into the physical world, he linked up with a neighborhood friend and DJ named Bundy, and together, they became Finsta & Bundy, later dropping the “&”. Eventually, Finsta picked up production himself, and together, they released a few (I stress the word “few”) singles throughout the mid and late 90s, however, each single was intensely great. Da Beatminerz’s Evil Dee, Mr. Walt and Rich Blak each had a hand in some of these singles, but in my opinion, it was Finsta’s production that had me bugging out the most.

Hands down, my favorite release from Finsta Bundy is the ’94 joint, Spirit of The Boogie. It emanated perfection: a monotonous, yet droning, brooding bassline almost reminiscent of Artifact’s Lower Da Boom, a pitched down Special Ed sample, dope verses and delivery. You could almost catch a contact high from the dope radiating through the speakers. For more info on Finsta, visit their site or hit ’em up on Twitter.

    That Feel The High track is DOPE. Sounds like something Slum Village would do with Blackmilk. Interesting facts about Black Moon too.

    damn thats crazy that you post this. ive been heavy listenin to finsta bundy the past few weeks. not enough people know about them. they made some great music back in 94

    What’s the bass sample from one for the money? I know I have it somewhere but the name is escaping me right now.

  • nice write-up. i remember hearing the rumors back in the day that buckshot didn’t get along with finsta and had him so to say “booted” from black moon but who knows. either way finsta bundy were too ill…i wish they had actually dropped an lp back then instead of random singles here and there. shit i’d love to get a CDQ compilation lp of their singles. i’d buy that shit with the quickness.

    if anyone wants to hear a comprehensive mix of their joints, i actually put together a compilation lp a few years ago with most of their best shit on it. the rip is titled “Finsta_Bundy-The_All-Time_High-2007-SWB” cop that if you can find it, shit is pretty good quality and nice as fuck.

    shit is queer

  • I used to have the original 12″ records for Finsta Bundy when they were on TAPEKINGZ. Evil Dee & Mister Cee were pushing them hard back in the early 90’s. I also used to own THE HIP-HOP CONNECTION in which I turned to MIXTAPE.COM in 1998, so I was in the mixtape game a long time and I liked FINSTA BUNDY
