Stockton-based company, BumpBoxx, has exploded into the portable audio scene with their retro-style boombox that sports modern tech such as Bluetooth capability, USB ports, and a wireless PA system. BumpBoxx is livening parties across the country, attracting music lovers of all sorts –from hip-hop street crews, cookout goers, to aspiring musicians.
BumpBoxx was co-founded in 2016 by Rob Owens, David Southern and Glen Fedale. The trio went on to form a unique collaboration with hip-hop legend Trae tha Truth, signee of T.I.’s Grand Hustle records, as their brand ambassador and the face of BumpBoxx. The team’s passion for music, combined with their individual entrepreneurial experiences, have afforded the company a thorough and diverse approach that has catapulted the company’s entry into the marketplace.
Trae tha Truth, who gained exposure on the Houston hip-hop scene in 1998, shares: “The BumpBoxx was created to fulfill our desire for a cool boombox that combined modern functionality, high-quality audio and the aesthetics that we’ve loved since youth. The response we’ve received proves we weren’t the only people waiting for a product that offered all of the above.”
BumpBoxx turned to crowdfunding site IndieGoGo in October of 2015, the response was more than encouraging: they raised 179% of their goal, which proved not only were people listening, BumpBoxx was addressing a real need for a more powerful Bluetooth speaker.
“Getting the BumpBoxx into the world has been my dream, and it’s amazing to experience the way people connect with it,” Trae said.
Recognizing a crucial moment in their growth, BumpBoxx is now focused on establishing the company’s brand identity and cultural voice. The BumpBoxx team has turned to Northern California’s premier full-service branding agency, Mindslap, to build out their online presence, print collateral, video presentations and more.
“We couldn’t be more excited about partnering with BumpBoxx–their humor, passion and commitment are unparalleled. We’re honored by their trust in us to handle their brand and to be along for what’s already been an awesome ride,” said Mindslap President and Founder Steve Airola.
