Krafty Kuts – Golden Era of Breakbeat Volume 2

 

 

It’s been 4 years since Krafty Kuts dropped his first Golden Era of Breakbeat mixes which had an overwhelming response from all the breaks heads out there. Now Krafty has dug deep into the archives of Nu Skool Breaks and breakbeat alike to bring you Volume 2 of the Golden Era of Breakbeat .

This mix is so good, enjoy 🙂

After the overwhelming response to Volume 1 I knew that doing Volume 2 was a tough challenge, so it took a while to make sure this mix lived up to the success of the first one. Some of the finest moments of my career have been playing Breaks out, i feel that’s what makes this genre so special.I have met some of the most amazing people and experienced incredible highlights in my career, from running 2 record labels ,club nights and traveling the world and sharing Breakbeat so please enjoy this podcast ” – KK

Krafty Kuts – Triple J Mix Up – December 2001

 

 

Krafty Kuts, real name Martin Reeves is one of the most influential people in the electronic music scene today with experience as a DJ / Producer for more than two decades. Never one to be tied down to a defined genre Krafty has mixed it with the best and has crafted (pardon the pun) the breaks scene in to what it is today. Many artists have come and gone over the years but Krafty is still here leading the way !

This mix is from 2001 and was aired on Triple J Radio Australia as promotion for Krafty as he was on tour of Australia at the time. Lots of bootlegs, rework and remixes in this at the golden time of Nuskool Breaks.

Krafty Kuts Presents A Tribute To James Brown Podcast Vol.1

 

 

This mix is flawless, Krafty Kuts has gone above and beyond with his newest mix “A Tribute To James Brown & His Funky Friends”. With James Brown being such an influence in Krafty’s career it was only fitting to pay homage to the master of all things funky.

“I started collecting all things James Brown related and simply became obsessed with the JB groove. He really was an incredible character but unfortunately passed away in 2006 on Christmas Day, so I felt this was the perfect time to pay tribute to the Godfather of Soul & Funk. This mix encompasses a mixture of James Brown and his Funky People: Fred Wesley, Marva Whitney, Lyn Collins, Hank Ballard, Maceo Parker, The JB’s and more. Without doubt the hardest working man in show business, he toured the world constantly with his band and dancers, performed to millions bringing the Funk to the masses. Who would think back in the 60’s & 70’s that his music would be sampled and be the backbone of Hip Hop,music. The influence his music has had on so many peoples lives is extraordinary and without James Brown and his Funky people I don’t think Hip Hop and even Dance music would be the same. Thank you James RIP the original Funk Soul Brother!”
