    Default Funky Breaks Krafty Kuts recommendations

    Hi there

    Can anyone recommend good resources for finding good funky breaks music?

    I like the style that Krafty Kuts and A-skillz play - a bit of breaks, a bit of hip-hop and quite a variation on BPMs.

    I use Beatport's Breaks section, which is ok, but not full of a wide vareity.

    I'm not really satisfied with Beatports breaks selection. They really need to split it up better, between the electro breaks sound, and old school funky.

    Some good funky artists are:

    Fort Knox Five
    Ancient Astronauts
    All Good Funk Alliance
    Skeewiff
    Ed Solo
    Stanton Warriors (although they are a bit heavier)

    Thanks, I know some of those artists and that's definitely on the right track.

    Anyone else got some artists / labels / download sites they recommend?

    Add Boca 45 to that list.

    I really love this type of music, but unfortunately I'm not horribly versed in it. hopeully that will change in the upcoming months.

    i find the broken beat/nu jazz, disco/nu disco and downtempo sections of juno download to be good sources for that kind of thing

    Plump DJ's are always good, they're a bit more electro breaks but I think you will like. Some proper big bass lines.
    DJ Friendly does some wicked stuff with breaks, definitely on the KK/ A-Skills vibe.
    Freestylers have that old skool breaks vibe with a bit of a hip hop/ grime flex?
    Check out some of the mixes these people have and also check Soundcloud and search the groups for Breakbeat/ breaks, i'm sure you will find something?

    Do a search for 'DJ Fixx' on Beatport.com

    Have a listen on some of THAT old skool funky breaks action. Check out the Huda Hudia and Fixx action on the Kaleidoscope records.

    I guess i'm old-fashioned, but that is what I grew up on.....

    Sick basslines and nice tight beats.
