I've always loved the "breaks mix" style of mixtape, a tradition at goes as far back as the early 80s when Hip Hop's first generation of DJs created mixtapes based around nothing but the "get down" parts of the tunes they were playing at the time. It must have been Afrika Bamabaataa's Death Mix that was the first of this kind to be pressed on vinyl (and also became the inspiration for the cover art for this mixtape). With this, I've gathered together a bunch of classic and not so classic breakbeats - some new some old - and put them through the blender, layered with vocal grabs, and a bunch of cuts.

Holy Breakbeats Frenzieman! Man this is the shirt, had me going from A-K. I was digging through my records trying to find those breaks that I recognised bt couldn't remember who by, especially at 20:45. Did Kool Keith use that break as well? One of the finest mixes I've heard in a long while. Props man.
