Plump DJs – Mixmag Presents Elastic Breaks 2001

Plumps Mixmag

 

This relatively hard to find mix was given away for free with the February issue of Mixmag in 2001. Entitled “Mixmag Presents Elastic Breaks – The Sound Of Breakbeat mixed by the Plump Djs” it was one sort after mix at the time and one that was on high rotation in my CD player. Over the next few weeks i’ll be digging into my archives to give you some Retro Breaks Mix Classics from artists that we all know from back in the day and many that have come and gone onto bigger and better things.
