Classic Material Bonus Mix #7: Hip Hop Club Breaks '93-98

Classic Material Bonus Mix #7: Hip Hop Club Breaks '93-98

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global 90s chart, 4th in the global rap chart and 9th in the global hip hop chart.

The Classic Material ‘bonus’ mixes fill the gaps in the original Classic Material Hip Hop History mixtape series, exploring specific sub genres not covered in the main series. #7 delves into a sub genre which is not entirely easy to describe. In their day these tracks were mostly just referred to as 'Breakbeats', but that's not a useful definition because that had a quite different meaning years before and has been used (rightly or wrongly) to describe other styles since. Loops of big Hip Hop records arranged into club-friendly instrumentals, they were definitely Club records first & foremost so 'Hip Hop Club Breaks' it is. Armand Van Helden's AV8 is the label most commonly associated with the sound, although Nervous Records & its 'Strapped' sub label probably released nearly as many. A few other smaller labels like Slammin' and Kingsize also played their part. As with previous volumes the artwork reworks a popular sleeve of the era, in this case the AV8 generic sleeve & hype sticker.
