Leuce Rhythms – Illusion Reality EP + LIVE Mix

Leuce Rhythms

 

Leuce Rhythms are a DJ/Producer duo carved from the cosmos of electronica in a big bang of Broken Beats and booming Bass. They were nominated as Best New Producer & Best New DJ at Breakspoll International Breakbeat awards in 2012 & 2013! With a simple philosophy to fuse together all that is good in electronic music, from pumpin’ funkin’ Breaks to filthy Electro.

Following releases on Hardcore Beats and MOFO Recordings, and a remix for the Dub Pistols on Sunday Best, and of our own Rebel Sketchy’s Acid Drops a couple of years back, the Leeds based duo release their debut artist EP on Ground Level.

The three tracks on Illusion Reality explore different areas of the worlds of bass and electro-breaks. The EP’s title track combines elements of Complextro with deep sub bass and rising melodies. Deeper Down works on a four to the floor electro vibe, using deeper pads and FX to invoke a wide-vision cinematic mood. So Good on the other hand is a peak-time anthem with it’s combination of squelching risers and feel good good chords, all brought together by a female vocal refrain.

Together these tracks combine to show a duo at home with the EP format, and using it to explore and experiment with the larger world of electronic music.

Breakfastaz – Coda Mix March 2005

Breakfastaz

 

Another Retro mix for you this week, courtesy of Bertie Dastard and the Free Breaks Blog. This time the legendary outfit of the Tear Out Breaks scene, The Breakfastaz. This mix is from March 2005 pretty was much at the height of the Nuskool Breaks Tear Out sound. Although the Breakfastaz are no longer together they certainly shaped the sound of breaks into some of the sounds we hear today.

Former members Froe, Gav and Merf made up the nu-skool breaks collective known as The Breakfastaz. They had been working together on a number of musical projects for several years and the wide-ranging influences they collectively bring have helped to form their unique breakbeat sound.

With over 20 successful releases and remixes on respected breaks labels such as Passenger, Mob, and Against The Grain in little over 2 years , their offerings received support and heavy rotation from scene stalwarts such as Plump DJs, The Freestylers, Tayo, Ali B, Meat Katie, Aquasky, Krafty Kuts, Deekline and even catching the ear of Zane Lowe, highlighting the enormous impact they’ve had on the scene in such a short period of time.

Their hard work was recognised, with the guys being featured on the front cover of IDJ’s ‘Players Of The Year 2004’ alongside the likes of Mylo and The Shapeshifters and also winning Best Breakthrough Act at the Breakspoll World Breakbeat Awards 2005, as well as being nominated for the Best DJ, Best Remix and Best Compilation awards in 2006.

@beatslappaz are some of Perth’s foremost breakbeat producers, back after a brief hiatus, they played the first Force Majeure show back in ’08 so there was no other choice but to bring them back for the 6th birthday.
