Crammed has released over 250 albums and 250 singles by artists from all over the world, ranging from Aksak Maboul to Bel Canto, Carl Craig, DJ Morpheus (& the Freezone series), Eddie Fowlkes, Flat Earth Society, The Gruesome Twosome, The Honeymoon Killers (let's skip some letters) ... to Snooze, Suba, Tek 9 & 4hero, Zap Mama, Hector Zazou and Zuco 103 ...

Crammed's sub-labels have included the Made To Measure composers' series, world music collection Cramworld, electronic music imprints SSR, Language & Selector, and Ziriguiboom, a collection devoted to new Brazilian music. Nowadays, Crammed would like to believe that borders between genres are no longer indispensable, so most releases tend to come out under the simple "Crammed" banner.

Crammed's current roster includes Konono N°1, Cibelle, Koçani Orkestar, Taraf de Haidouks, Bebel Gilberto, Balkan Beat Box, DJ Dolores, Tuxedomoon, Shantel, Kasai Allstars, Think Of One, Mahala Rai Banda, newcomers Lonely Drifter Karen & Allá, and more.

Here's what the press says:

‘It’s ridiculously exciting’ -WORD (UK)

‘BBB are as outspoken and uncompromising as ever. It’s hard to resist the album’s intensity’ -SONGLINES (UK)

‘BBB are a party band. Most of the songs here could apply could apply for the job of director of getting the party started and expect to be hired on the spot’ -SUNDAY TIMES (UK)

'BBB kick against rich pricks on most electro-focused LP to date' -SPIN (US)

'The explosive trio are at their provocative and edgly best again, with their mashup of all things exotic, eclectic and politcally-sensitive' -ROLLING STONE (South Africa)

‘This is hip-hop that takes no prisoners, and is passionate and determined…The band still makes sure the party’s on the floor, but this time they want everyone to think as well as dance’’ - EMUSIC.COM

‘It’s great ribald, wild party music where anything goes from gypsy music to dub… the roots riot upgraded to the 21st century" -LOUDERTHANWAR (UK)

'Imbibing influences from Curtis Mayfield to Bob Marley, 50s guitar licks, punk bass lines, Eastern Eutropean rhythms, reggaeton and dubstep — you name it, BBB leap out highly inebriated... ...Spare, ironic lyrics, hand in hand with deeply witty music... There is not a single track that misses the mark'  -ROCK'NREEL (UK)

'M.I.A. rencontre Asian Dub Foundation ou un Goran Bregovic hip-hop... Difficile de résister à la bonne humeur politique de BBB ! Et pourquoi ne pas danser de façon responsable cette année ?' -MUSICZINE (BE)
