Fat Breaks Volume 1 Mixed by Atomic Hooligan & Jay Cunning

 

Taking it back to the Oldschool with some Nuskool long time Breaks sceners Atomic Hooligan & Jay Cunning had special privilege in mixing the latest release from Fat! Records. A collection of tracks from the back catalog of Fat! Records with some tracks being over 10 years old !

When it comes to record labels in the golden era of Breakbeat music, Fat! is up there as one of the most consistent, original and standard setting on the global scene… Along with their legendary night ‘Chew the Fat’ at the End in London, the label pioneered a sound in music that will live forever in the souls of ravers all over the world.

Luminary artists such as Foamo, Maribou State, Bondax and Baobinga (Sam Binga) and many others passed through the label in its earlier years and created a sound that was rooted in club culture and helped evolve the diverse Bass & Breakbeat sound.

The very first releases featured the likes of Peacemaker, The Apollo Kids, Merka, Tayo & Kickflip releasing tunes and remixes on the label that will live in Breakbeat folklore…. This is what we are here to celebrate! Re-mastered, re-uploaded, and re-presented for you to re-live your heady days of the naughtys! Fat! Records are proud to present to you Fat! Breaks Vol 1.

Taking a snap shot of the labels earliest highlights from its Breakbeat beginnings, these tunes represent a time in music when influences were flying around like model spitfires at a Saturday morning remote control plane meeting in the park. Techno, early Grime, Garage, Drum & Bass, House, were all being fused into a cohesive melee of breaks and basslines which captured the essence of everything that was fresh and new in the club and dance music at the time, whilst giving a nod to the past with a sprinkling of Disco, old skool Hip Hop and Jungle.

Fat! has since progressed onto releasing some of the finest House, techno and pop infused dance music in the past decade, but its former years will always have a special place in the hearts and minds of many.

Atomic Hooligan – LIVE @ Breakspoll 2008

ah-cover

 

 

This mix was recorded LIVE by BBC Radio and aired back in 2008 along with a bunch of other mixes on the famous Annie Nightingale Radio Show. I personally ripped, downloaded, bypassed the BBC Radio Player at that time for this mix. Breakspoll was a very special event back then and was the highlight of the Breaks scene throughout the world.

Next up are Breakbeat guru’s Atomic Hooligan LIVE with a 9 piece band at Fabric Nightclub 2008.
