Pecoe – Retro Breaks Mix Volume 6

 

 

Every time i make one of these mixes i always come across great music that i had forgotten about over the years. This mix highlights some of these tracks with tunes from the late 1990’s up to the late 2000’s, 23 breaks tracks all up ranging from the early Nu Skool Breaks to the more Progressive to Bootlegs and to the late 2000’s types of Breaks where production of tunes were just on point.

Lee Coombs – Triple J Mixup – December 2004

 

 

One of the pioneers in the early 2000’s breaks scene Lee Coombs became a popular artist and DJ after releasing music on the world renowned breaks label Finger Lickin Records. Lee has a special style in music so when the Tech Funk genre started to flair up he fitted right in with that close to 4 on the floor and a hint of breakbeat. Lee is still around today and has been airing streams over the internet during these CO-VID times.

This mix was recorded for Triple J Radio Australia in 2004 and is an example of Lee’s musical style.

Adam Freeland – LIVE @ Roxy Prague – 22.10.2004

 

 

Considered one of the pioneers of the Nu Skool Breaks sound and an innovative person in trying out new sounds Adam Freeland had many a hit back in the day. Heading the very start of the breaks scene back in the late 1990’s and playing the very most underground acts of that time Adam promoted the very early breaks music through DJing and the Breakbeat Show at Kiss FM as well as starting his own record label Marine Parade records. Never one to shy away from making white label bootleg records back then he went under various aliases, but you could always tell it was him from his particular style of music production.

This mix was recorded live back in 2004 at Roxy, Prague and contains basically all of his greatest hits, enjoy this 2hr 30min set.

Thanks to Antis for the MP3.

Pecoe – Rave & Club Classics

 

 

A new Facebook page has arisen here in Perth celebrating the wondrous rave scene that Perth has had from the late 80’s onwards. A lot of photos, music and stories have been shared on this page bringing back memories and pictures of people i used to rave with in the very early 1990’s. For the life of me i can remember the peoples faces but not all of their names.

This Rave & Club Classics Mix has come about because of this new Facebook page and the music, people, DJs (Local and international) and events that took place and the major influence they had on me in my late teens and onwards. Pretty much all of the tracks in the mix were played around the time i was raving and clubbing. It was the time of no social media (thank god) and more of a community of people who enjoyed going out to all hours of the morning, dancing the night away with rave buddies and friends.
