Breakbeats + Booty Bass + Miami = A Very Good Thing

For about 10 years between the late 90s and throughout the naughts, Winter Music Conference in Miami was pretty much the greatest place on god’s green Earth.

Stanton Warriors, Drumattic Twins, Freestylers & more

We love us some comics. We love us some break beats. We also love us some Incredible Hulk (more Avengers movie Hulk than the other movie Hulks, although you’d have to give Lou Ferrigno’s seminal Hulk top billing). What’s the point, you ask?

Bristol's answer for house, breaks,UK bass & Detroit techno

Bristol producer Eats Everything (Daniel Pearce) has released a remix of the iconic Sono track “Keep Control” in preparation and hype for his upcoming U.S. tour. Although the producer’s music fits under the umbrella of house, it’s not a limited soundscape. Pearce involves elements of jungle, breakbeats, UK bass and Detroit techno into his music […]

30-minutes of breakbeats to make your Summer 2012 memorable

Any day that the Stanton Warriors drop a new mix is a good day, so ergo today is a wonderful day. I’ve been a bit disappointed by the last couple times the brothers Stanton got behind the turntables live, as their usually epic breaks mixes have begun to be watered down by what we lovingly […]
