Jay Cunning – Dutty Breakbeat Classics



With the recent gig “Back To The Beats” held in Brixton and the monstrous lineup of old school Breaks talent it’s only fitting that we have a near on 2 hour mix from the man that was their at the beginning, Jay Cunning. With this mix he has digged deep into his crate of records putting together some classic old Nu Skool Breaks from around the year 2000. For those that remember you are going to dig this.

Freestylers – LIVE @ Rough Tempo Radio – 23.12.2009



Nice little rare LIVE set from a while back of the legendary Freestylers. Aston Harvey this time mixing it up for Rough Tempo Radio back in December of 2009 and just over 2 hours worth of some nice Booty Breaks that were around at that time. While Rough Tempo now deal with more of the Drum and Bass sound they were the go to place for many a famous Breaks act a few years back. Enjoy !

I personally converted the audio from this mix from one of the various video DJ sets that was available from the Rough Tempo website at that time.
