Bombardier is the moniker for Jason Snell, an electronic artist with over 50 albums and singles since 1998. Discovered by Kid 606 in San Francisco, his first album was Violence, a full length mix CD of original material on Vinyl Communications, one of the most well respected hardcore labels in the world.
Inspired by German and Midwest hardcore like DHR and Delta 9, Snell created a breakbeat gabber hybrid and evolved into a fusion between punk and drum n bass. He used 4-track recording with distortion stomp boxes to apply a raw, punk sound to the electronic genre. He became a shaping influence of the breakcore sound emerging in the late 90's, producing music for pioneering labels such as Low Res, Addict, Drop Bass, Hangars Liquides (France) and CFET (Germany). Snell has performed live at shows throughout the US and Canada alongside Meat Beat Manifesto, Adam X, DJ Hidden, Delta 9, Venetian Snares, DJ Scud and Christoph De Babalon.
In 2000, Snell moved to downtown New York City and started D13 Records, a sub-label of Low Res used as a platform to release his music and designs. His style has evolved over the years to include techno, industrial, electro, and ambient. His music has been featured in several films, the first of which premiered at Sundance and won several awards at film festivals worldwide.
In 2009, Snell moved to California and has continued to use all the tools at his disposal to create new forms of music, design, and sound interfaces.
