Roll Call Break Beat Producers.
This is like still one of the more underground genres, at least in the US. It's hard to find much about break beat productions even dubstep has become more main stream. With that said is anyone on DJTT into producing break beats?
If so what DAW and gear you use, would like to create a thread for us lovers of the break beats!
I'll start currently I am using Ableton, and Maschine for all my production work. I haven't produced much in the breaks category for awhile but I've been working on some new tracks and trying new techniques.
I just started digging back into the breaks side of things, nothing I have is complete but give me a little time and I'll post some Works in Progress
What styles do you produce mainly?
i am huge on trance/chillout but i have experimented with quite a few styles over the years

Nope did not miss it, I still got loads of Funky breaks 80's remixes from the 2000's, but with that said it was still relatively underground as a whole compared to say like Trance or even Chicago hard house was overall bigger than breaks then, unless of course you were in Florida.

It seemed like so long nothing good was coming out except from a few select producers.
not particulary breakbeat but the drums are kind of breakbeat driven
its and odd fusion of genres, check the song albedo.
I have been into breaks/dnb since mid 1998. I really miss the older florid funky breaks. Fixx, London, hudia, volume, etc etc.
I only just recently pick up ableton and tried my hand at producing. I havent got to deep into it and have really just played around and made a few cool sounds. nothing to put together yet.
I know its only an excuse but my office and master bedroom are in the process of being updated and switched so my work area is a mess and I cant get into things when shit around me is messy. The work should be done very soon and I cannot wait to get back into my new office and get back into ableton.
