The International Breakspoll Awards for 2015 are tomorrow night, March 7th 2015 and what better way to get you in the right mood by hearing an exclusive LIVE mix from Rennie Pilgrem recorded back at the Breakspoll awards in 2011.
Known as “The Godfather of Breaks” Rennie Pilgrem’s contribution to the early Nuskool Breaks scene is outstanding and given this title is often considered responsible for the creation of the Nuskool Breaks genre. Before moving into breaks Rennie produced techno and acid house and was part of the influential rave group Rhythm Section along with Ellis Dee. Rennie is also the boss of Thursday Club Recordings aka TCR a label which he founded in 1993. TCR records was a major force in the Nuskool Breaks scene. Now concentrating more on his talented art skills Rennie has stepped back from the dance scene and continues to produce some great works of art.
Here’s the full lowdown:
