    Default 1st time DJing for a Breakdancer, any suggestions?

    I've played R'n'B and HipHop at club level however I know that for breakdancing, instrumentals would be better suited.

    I'm doing some serious digging but does anyone have any suggestions for breakbeats for break dancers.

    Holy cow you've got some work in front of you.

    But you're gonna find some absolute crackin' tracks.

    You can thank me later. Go and buy:

    ULTIMATE BREAKS AND BEATS VOLUME 1 to 25

    That should get you started. But there are TONS more.

    Any early electro, Afrika Bambaataa, Egyptian Lover, Newcleus, et al should do the trick.

    i visit some dance battles in my hometown from time to time. The breakers/dancers there are more into new stuff. Look up some Troyboi Stuff and let the recommendations guide you from there.

    Egyptian Lover
    Pretty much every release on So So Def will have some sick breaks on em (the vinyl releases anyway).
    Bassbin Twins
    Any of the DJ Icey compilation records
    Go digging at your local record shop too. You will find a lot of really great breaks on funk records.

    I don't think its a bootleg. The artists given credit are kraftwerk.

    edit: via wiki

    The piece was also included in the 1984 film Breakin', also known as Breakdance internationally. Although the song did appear briefly in the film, Kraftwerk did not let the song appear on the movie soundtrack; instead, a cover version of the song was released by a group called "10 Speed".
