Breakbeat Explorationz Vol. 1

Subwayz Breakbeat Explorationz Vol. 1

So in this mix I get to drop a few new breaks and bass tunes from labels like Tru Funk, Breakbeat Paradise Recordings, Punks Music, & Berceuse Heroique. Whilst taking the opportunity to include Meat Beat Manifesto, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, the Special Request remix of Go, by The Chemical Brothers, the Andrew Weatherall remix of Heretic, some acid breaks from DJ Rawcut, Turntable Actor Chloroform, Jay Riordan, and including some techno from Paul Woolford Denham Audio, Laurel Halo, Actress and drum n bass with Riya & P.A. and a couple of tracks from Boards Of Canada, naturally.

The aim of this mix was to try to highlight all of the different inner genres that inhabit the breakbeat/techno/bass scene, and hopefully put them all together in a mix that everyone (who like this and other forms of this music) might enjoy! Hopefully I haven't put anyone off this music for life....

Once again I took the opportunity to add a few of my favourite artists/tracks and incorporate them in with some quality new tunes! The Message, by Grandmaster Flash And The Furious Five is one of my all time favourite hip hop tunes. The version I have included is a bootleg, but it was awesome to mix it with the Boards of Canada remix of Prime Audio Soup by Meat Beat Manifesto. Chance Of Rain by Laurel Halo is one of my favourite tunes from 1993, so the chance the include this track in any mix was an opportunity I couldn't turn down!

There are some great new tunes which I have included, with EP's from artists like Jay Riordan, Denham Audio, Jimmy Le Mac, DJ Rawcut and UFO Project.

Next on my to-do list is to get working on another techno mix, and include some of the more ambient tunes that I like. Also on the list is a mix that includes Autechre, Aphex Twin and Boards of Canada.
