Krafty Kuts – Promo Mix June 2007

 

 

One of the most prolific and world renowned breakers around Krafty Kuts provided this promo mix way back in June 2007. I can’t remember where i got this but i did download it all those years ago, 14 to be exact. This mix was when Breaks was taking a turn from the end of Nu Skool Breaks era and bringing it’s own new defining genre with a whole group of artists now producing breaks tracks making the breaks genre even more so popular then ever.

 

 

 

 

 

General Midi – Winter Promo Mix 2007

 

 

General Midi, or Paul Crossman, who also performed under the name Fluid, came out of the Bristol club scene, making a splash when he became resident DJ at the Shimmy Club in 1994. His mix of breakbeat with nu-skool, electronica, house, and hip-hop made him a popular act.

Emerging from the backrooms of the Bristol Club scene his slick DJ ability and an ear for a great tune gave him regular appearances at breaks hotspots across the planet such as Fabric, Chew The Fat, Blow Pop, Sounds On Sundays (Sydney), Two Tribes (Australia), Zouk (Singapore), Budapest, all across the USA, Hungary, Spain, Serbia, China and Hong Kong. Teaming up with production partner Eelz, General Midi has been responsible for some of the most genre defining tunes in ‘The Westoner’ (’99) ‘Daft Funk’ (’01) ‘Further’ (’03) & ‘You will Be Under’ (’03), ‘Entertainer’ (’04), ‘Bass Rockerz’ (’04) & ‘House of Funk’ (’05).

General Midi’s singles have been released on some of the most respected breaks labels of the time, including TCR (Rennie Pilgrims label) & Kilowatt (Hyper’s label). In 1999 he released his single “The Westerner,” followed two years later by “Daft Funk,” the same year that his first full-length release, Genetically Modified. All of this has led to his debut artist album ‘Midi Style’ which was released on Distinct’ive Records in 2005. In 2009 he released his follow up album ‘Operation Overdrive’.

Paul Crossman also worked with writing partner and audio engineer Al Watson in the duo act called “Starecase”.

 

 

 

 

Deekline & Wizard – LIVE @ Sala Visitors – 5.5.2007

 

 

Deekline and Wizard cemented themselves in Breakbeat folklore. Known for their Booty Breaks from back in the day they were a force to be reckoned with releasing a full album called “Breaks, Beats and Blondes” on Botchit & Scarper Records in 2004. Another one in 2009 and 2 mix compilations. Unfortunately they both parted ways but Deekline has kept producing music and travelling the world DJing till this day.

This mix was recorded LIVE @ Sala Visitors, Spain May 2007 and has the sometimes annoying MC Evil E on the mic too.

 

 

 

 

 

Breakfastaz – LIVE @ Dynamic Breaks 1st Birthday 2007

 

 

Froe, Gav and Merf made up the nu-skool breaks collective The Breakfastaz, known in the early 2000’s for their unique sound and a heavy hitter in the Tear Out Breaks scene at that time. With other musical projects going on later in their careers the lads gained a huge following leading them touring the world, releasing over 20 successful tracks and remixes for top labels such as Passenger, Mob & Against The Grain. In 2005 the Breakfastaz won Best Breakthrough Act at the Breakspoll World Breakbeat Awards.

This mix was recorded LIVE @ Dynamic Breaks 1st Birthday around 2007 (I forgot to name the file correctly when i downloaded it back then), it’s straight up Tear Out Breaks, so it’s a little bit gnarly !
