Ahhhh… I like that. I credit my wife for bringing this mixtape into the relationship; it was a permanent fixture in her car stereo when we first started dating. I also credit this tape for being my introduction to wonderful world of breakbeat (unless you count James Brown, Afrika Bambaataa or other precursors to the modern breaks genre.) It’s crazy to me how different these tracks sound than the aggressive, bass-dominated breaks of today… these beats are looser, the production is thinner, and a simple modulating 303 synth can carry an entire song. Here’s to old skool breaks!
