Classic Material: 'The Breaks of 89'

Classic Material: 'The Breaks of 89'

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global funk chart, 1st in the global soul chart and 4th in the global hip hop 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. This is the third mix in the series, this time rebuilding popular Hip Hop cuts from 1989 by the likes of 3rd Bass, Biz Markie, EPMD and De La Soul from their Funk, Soul, Rock & Jazz constituent sample sources. Artwork by John Brotherhood in tribute to the Ultimate Breaks and Beats series, the original sampled breaks collection. I hope you enjoy!
