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.

Jay Cunning – 1994 Sanctuary Inspired DJ Mix

Jay Cunning - 1994 Sanctuary Inspired DJ Mix


I went to my first rave in 1992, it was called Telepathy and held in an industrial estate with residential houses nearby. Unfortunately it was shut down by the police in the early hours of the morning. There where about 200 police who didn’t know what to do with so many wasted people, the rave made headline news.

Most of the tunes in this mix i have heard from that time on and Jay Cunning’s old school rave mix sets the standard for rave music of this period.

“Fresh out the booth here’s my latest classic DJ mix taking you back to hedonistic sweaty warehouse raves of 1994. Inspired by countless raving trips to Milton Keynes legendary Sanctuary with my pony tail and raving jacket. Think Helter Skelter, Dreamscape, Slipmatt, Ellis Dee & Seduction and your on the right track… these of some of the classic rave tunes that still resonate with me 20 years on!” – JC
