The Mashit record label was founded in 2003 to "fill a need for speed-ragga, dub-core, and genre-blends".

Mashit grew out of Boston's Toneburst event production collective,[1] founded by DJ C, DJ /rupture, and others in 1996. The collective produced more than 20 multi-media events in Boston and the greater New England area in the late '90s, and included musicians such as Hrvatski, Aaron Spectre, and DJ Flack.

The first Mashit 12-inch vinyl record featured label founder DJ C’s tracks alongside an Aaron Spectre remix. A series of 12-inches followed. In October 2004, BBC Radio One host John Peel chose Mashit as a “label of the month”, and since then the Mashit sound and ethos has continued to evolve.

In 2007, Mashit relaunched its label web site, accompanied by a new release schedule of digital downloads, a music blog, and a podcast.

The Mashit collective, now based in the Chicago area, also produce regular events there.[2]
