Classic Material: 'The Breaks of 88'

Classic Material: 'The Breaks of 88'

Chart positions

This show was 3rd in the global funk chart, 3rd in the global hip hop chart and 4th in the global soul chart.

A continuation of sorts from the Diary and Classic Material mix series, 'The Breaks of ...' revisits the chronological theme of those mixes, this time reconstructing classic hip hop from the year in question utilising only the original sample material. Originally released on Limited Edition Cassette in the summer of 2013, I thought it was about time these mixes got an airing online. Artwork by John Brotherhood in tribute to the Ultimate Breaks and Beats series, the original sampled breaks collection. I hope you enjoy!

Blazing hot! Packing so much good stuff in a short time.


i ask me always how these mixes are done. i hear scratching during some shortcuts from track to track. is that record twice... once for the mix and a second for the scratches? or do you have 4 arms? :D
