Kid Breaks – The Armory Podcast 198

 

 

UK-based Kid Breaks is 12-year old Cystic Fibrosis sufferer, Logan. As some will know, CF is an incurable illness that attacks the lungs, pancreas, liver, kidneys and intestine. To keep things under control, a mind-boggling amount of medication has to be taken along with regular nebulizer and physio sessions. Because Logan is susceptible to lots of illness’ because of his weak immune system, he can soon become stuck at home or at his worst, in hospital for lengthy periods of time. Even at such a young age though, Logan has realised that when he’s feeling really low, music is the answer to bring him back up again.

Logan’s love of music has been bought on and heavily influenced by his dad Lee, who has an insatiable appetite for Breakbeat and it’s that particular style that he has latched onto. Lee made what could very well prove to be an inspired decision by buying Logan a DJ controller back in 2017 because since that day, they’ve never looked back! Logan took to DJing like a duck to water and soon adopted his Kid Breaks alias. After the school day was done, homework completed and the daily CF business dealt with, it was all about mixing Breakbeat for this star in the making!

With his new found love of DJing and his skills becoming all too apparent, Kid Breaks has been gaining notoriety at a rapid rate. In 2018 alone he has received tutoring and DJ tips from Janette Slack (Slack Trax), Terry Ryan (Atomic Hooligan), Jay Cunningham (Sub Slayers) and Dominic Butler (Stanton Warriors). He has also played at the Old Pint Pot in Manchester where four of the top Breaks night came together for one big party and he has also played at the Green Meadow Festival in Peterborough where he ended up playing five sets over the weekend, culminating in him opening the dance tent on the Sunday and by all accounts, absolutely smashed it!

We’re over the moon to have Kid Breaks on The Armory Podcast and help him with his cause of raising awareness of Cystic Fibrosis. He’s cooked up quite a mix too with new and classic Breakbeat cuts that we’re sure will put a smile on the faces of all who tune into it. Kid Breaks is one to keep an eye out for in the future, that there is no doubt!
